The Art & Making of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

The Art and Making of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a book that shows the art of the first Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs film and how the film was made, with a foreword by Judi Barrett. This book is a smorgasbord of behind-the-scenes interviews, development art, and other goodies such as scratch-and-sniff stickers and a full fold-out map of Swallow Falls. It is a hardcover book that comes in a cardboard slip case, and in addition to the stickers and map, it includes "top secret" information on the FLDSMDFR and other inventions (including the Invisible Coffee Table), a pamphlet about the design of the Flying Car, a fold-out of Sam's chalkboard weather diagram, a paper "CD" of Flint's "screen savers" (screenshots of the movie and an image of Flint's desktop, included as a small packet along with the "CD"), and renders of each individual ingredient in a hamburger.

Deleted Characters and Locations

  • Jukebox Repairman
  • Salty Peppers
  • The Million-Room Hotel was a luxurious accommodation for visitors to Swallow Falls. It was shaped like an upside-down pyramid to catch the food falling from the sky. However, questions were raised around how long the food had been falling for such a structure to be built, so it was changed to the food dam.
  • Originally, the FLDSMDFR produced a giant Food Monster off the coast of the island. However, it was cut because it was too similar to "another Sony film."
