Sony selected some top-notch yet underrated voice talents for 2009′s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, including Bill Hader, Anna Faris and Andy Samberg. Fortunately, all three will return for the sequel and now The Hollywood Reporter has learned that television star Kristen Schaal will join them.
Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers will be directed by Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn, and according to a recently discovered plot synopsis, will take us back to Swallow Falls to the aftermath of Flint Lockwood’s massive food storm, where sentient food beasts have run amok.
No details on Schaal’s character yet, but it’s supposedly an orangutan.
Schaal has developed an extensive voice acting resume after hitting the map on HBO’s The Flight of the Conchords. She voiced Trixie the Triceratops in Toy Story 3 and has a regular voice role on Fox’s Bob’s Burgers, among many guest spots.
Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers is expected in theaters February 7, 2014.
