Saved room for sec­onds? Then feast your eyes on Sony Pic­tures An­i­ma­tion’s col­or­ful, kooky CG se­quel from di­rec­tors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn. In this sec­ond out­ing, Flint Lock­wood (Bill Hader) gets his dream job work­ing for his in­ven­tor idol Chester V (Will Forte), whose com­pany is tasked with clean­ing up the edi­ble dis­as­ter in Swal­low Falls. When Flint, Sam (Anna Faris) and crew re­turn to the is­land, they find it over­run with food-an­i­mal hy­brids cre­ated by his FLDSMDFR—some cute and friendly, some vi­cious mu­tants.

The two-disc Blu-ray combo ($40.99) comes with deleted scenes and fun shorts star­ring key char­ac­ters: At­tack of the 50-foot Gummi Bear (Steve the mon­key as­sis­tant is left in charge of the FLDSMDFR with dis­as­trous re­sults), Steve’s First Bath (Flint and Sam’s first date is sab­o­taged by simian an­tics), Su­per Manny (Jack-ofall-trades Manny saves an adorable kitty us­ing his many skills) and Earl’s Scouts (the Food­i­mals join Of­fi­cer Earl’s troop, but are highly com­pet­i­tive). The Blu-ray 3D combo ($45.99) tacks on di­rec­tors’ com­men­tary and nu­mer­ous in­for­ma­tive, be­hind-thescenes fea­turettes with Cameron, Pearn, an­i­ma­tors, de­sign­ers and voice stars: “Anatomy of a Food­i­mal,” “Pro­duc­tion De­sign: Back in the Kitchen,” “Awe­some End Cred­its,” “Cloudy Cafe: Who’s on the Menu?,” “Build­ing the Food­i­mals,” “The Sasquash” and “De­li­cious Pro­duc­tion De­sign” as well as mu­sic video and makingof for Cody Simp­son’s “La Da Dee.” [Re­lease date: Jan­uary 28]
