2013 has been quite a year for animated franchises. In this year alone, we have gotten sequels, spin-offs and prequels to animated films such as Monsters, Inc., Despicable Me, Cars, and now the surprise hit Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Now that the original directing and writing team Phil Lord and Chris Miller (also known for last year’s 21 Jump Street) have moved on to write and direct The Lego Movie, the weight is on Sony’s shoulders to live up to the success of the original. In the end, is Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 a worthy second helping?
