Chewandswallow Goes Hollywood

The classic picture book Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs imagines life in a town where food drops "like rain from the sky." (That's good, right? Or is it? Read the book, please!!) It's a fantastic concept and, as evidenced by the forthcoming movie version's official trailer, it should prove fantastical on the big screen.

Take a peek:

It certainly looks, um, animated. But (to me) it already feels very different, stylistically, from the book. What do you think?

I heard a movie was in the works, but I guess I expected something more like the pencil-drawings in the book. And telling the story like it was told by "Grandpa". This looks slick and exciting. Not sure my kids, including the grown kids who grew up on this book, will appreciate the amount of artistic license that has been taken here.
