Perhaps one of the more underrated animated films last year (which I still haven’t seen, but everyone else I work with have), it appears as if “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” will continue with a sequel.
The sequel is set to be based off the second children’s book in the series called “Pickles to Pittsburgh” by series Ron and Judi Barrett. Original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are said to be creatively involved in the story for the sequel, but they won’t be directing it.
Here is the book description:
In Pickles to Pittsburgh, we check back in with Kate and Henry as they eagerly await Grandpa’s return from an unusual vacation. Kate dreams about a postcard Grandpa has sent, and the story begins.
Kate and Henry pilot a plane, landing on a runway of crisp bacon strips next to a field of giant broccoli stalks and oversized hamburgers. Passing through an orange-juice rain, they approach the town of Chewandswallow, which “used to be a very ordinary town, except that instead of weather, food rained down from the sky for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.” Times have changed in Chewandswallow, and readers will love finding out how storms of gigantic food threatened normal life until eventually the Falling Food Company was created, sending food to hungry people around the world.
