The trailer for Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 has been released. Scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch it.

The two-minute teaser features plenty of new food-based puns including “shrimpanzees”, “a leek in the boat” and “a piece of cake” – used here to refer to a walking, talking gateaux.

Released in 2009, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs was a quirky computer-animated comedy loosely based on the children’s book of the same name by Judi and Ron Barrett. The film became a big hit at the box office, grossing over $243 million (£160 million) worldwide.

The sequel opens in the US on May 27, but UK cinema-goers will have to wait until October 25 to see it. Anna Faris, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg and Neil Patrick Harris have all reprised their voice roles from the first film.

However, Mr T will not be returning as sporty police officer Earl Devereaux, with the role being voiced by Terry Crews instead. Another new addition to the cast is Flight Of The Conchords actress Kristen Schaal, who has leant her distinctive voice to a character called Barb, a lipstick-wearing orangutan with a human brain.
