The development of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs video game is the third such collaboration in a successful partnership, with Ubisoft having produced top-selling video games based on Sony Pictures Animation's $190 worldwide box office hit, Open Season, and Academy Award nominee for Best Animated Feature, Surf's Up.
"Our past projects together have shown that Ubisoft understands how to translate the artistry and storytelling of Sony Pictures Animation's films to the world of video games," said Mark Caplan, Vice President, Licensing-Hardlines and Interactive at Sony Pictures Consumer Products. "Our teams are already working together to create a fun and engaging interactive game that will extend the film experience."
Sony Pictures Animation's second animated film to be created in stereoscopic 3D, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs will be the most delicious event since macaroni met cheese. Inspired by the beloved children's book, the film focuses on a town where food falls from the sky like rain. The film features the voices of Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan, Andy Samberg, Bruce Campbell, Mr. T, and Tracy Morgan. The film is written and directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, based on the bestselling children's book written by Judi Barrett and illustrated by Ron Barrett. Pam Marsden is the producer.
"We're pleased to continue our successful partnership with Sony Pictures Consumer Products," said Christian Salomon, vice president of worldwide licensing at Ubisoft. "Our teams are looking forward to creating a game that will offer parents and children an entertaining experience that they can share together while reliving their favorite moments from the film."
