Sadly Lord and Miller are not back for this Meatball sequel, but it still looks totally charming. The Lost World/Jurrasic Park-esque approach to the sequel, returning to Swallow Falls to discover a lush, food-based ecosystem is actually pretty clever, building on the events of the first film instead of rehashing them in a new location. While most of the vocal cast looks to be back, I can already tell that I'm going to miss the indelible vocal performance of Mr. T as the police officer. (It helps that the main character, Flint Lockwood, has a name that seems tailor-made for Mr. T's particularly odd brand of intonation.) Much like its predecessor, every frame of this thing looks like a rich visual treat. I kept wanting to pause the trailer to identify all the various food creatures, which look to be an endless source of creativity and pun-based hilarity.
I mean, come on. "There's a leek in the boat"?
Just take all of my dollars right now.
