‘Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers’ Adds Terry Crews, Kristen Schaal & Will Forte
Cloudy certainly was a different conceived animated film, deterring from the usual visuals of cool blue and with warm red, not to mention the sight of meatballs floating in the air. The first film was voiced by Mr. T and Bruce Cambell and has added a few new voices for the 3D film including Terry Crews (replacing Mr. T), Will Forte and Kristin Schaal.
Terry Crews will play a cop in Swallow Falls. Will Forte will have an expanded role in the film as Chester V, “an inventor and idol of Lockwood’s who invites him to join others bright minds at a technology company.” Kristen Schaal will also lend her voice to the film as a “highly evolved orangutan with a human brain, who is also devious, manipulative and likes to wear lipstick.”
They join returning leads Bill Hader and Anna Faris, “inventor Flint Lockwood and weather girl Sam Sparks”, joind by James Caan (Flint’s dad), Andy Samberg (a local celebrity), Neil Patrick Harris (a gummy-loving monkey) and Benjamin Bratt (as Spark’s cameraman).
Here’s a summary of the plot:
Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers picks up where Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs left off. Inventor Flint Lockwood’s genius is finally being recognized as he’s invited by his idol Chester V (Will Forte of Saturday Night Live) to join The Live Corp Company, where the best and brightest inventors in the world create technologies for the betterment of mankind. Chester’s right-hand-gal – and one of his greatest inventions – is Barb (Kristen Schaal of Toy Story 3 and 30 Rock), a highly evolved orangutan with a human brain, who is also devious, manipulative and likes to wear lipstick.
It’s always been Flint’s dream to be recognized as a great inventor, but everything changes when he discovers that his most infamous machine – which turns water into food – is still operating and is now creating mutant food beasts. With the fate of humanity in his hands, Flint and his friends must embark on a dangerously delicious mission, battling hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, apple pie-thons, double bacon cheespiders and other food creatures to save the world… again!
Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers is produced by the directors of the first film, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and the sequel will be directed by Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn. The movie comes to theaters in 3D February 17, 2014.
