Cloudy Deux

Sony's animated entry for (late) summer is being completed as we speak.

New directors came aboard for the latest iteration. The old directors, per Sony staffers, saw the new edition some months ago and gave notes that were appreciated and liked. Per Cinema Blend:

... Animation will be completed within the week, then lighting will be completed in about six weeks. As to design, [directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn] wanted to maintain the idea from the first film, that the food they animated would look delicious, but with the addition of sentient thought they wanted them to also have a "Muppety" sensibility. ...

Sony has been on an animation roll after a choppy start. They scored with Meatballs, Smurfs, and Hotel Transylvania. Animated sequels of animated hits have (usually) done well. Come September, we get to see how this one performs.

Sigh. Whatever happened to "character animation?"

But it's just a trailer, right?
