Two animated sequels started teasing fans about upcoming footage reveals and tantalizing voice casting.
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2: Revenge of the Leftovers will have a trailer available for fans on Feb. 27, and Sony Pictures Animation teased the clip with a still of culinary scientist Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader) pointing at … something. The trailer drops 5 days from now. The sequel has circled a September 27 release date. Sneak a peek:
Rio 2 won’t be in theaters until April 2014, so the sequel is just now lining up vocal talents to join original stars Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway. On the movie’s official Facebook page, it was revealed that Andy Garcia, singer Bruno Mars and Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth will lend their voices to the sequel, which is expected to take place during the FIFA World Cup scheduled to be held in Brazil.
The original Rio crossed nearly $500 million in worldwide ticket sales, so a sequel was inevitable. We’ll probably hear more casting on Rio 2 as the sequel develops, and we’ll definitely post that Cloudy 2 trailer the minute it drops.
