The film starts with the previous one. Founder Flint Lockwood and his friends congratulate Flint Lockwood on his success in saving the world from the FLDSMDFR (Diatonic Super Mutant Dynamic Food Replicator) food storm. CEO Chester W. and Flint’s Idol provide cleanup services for the company. He hired Flint, but during his brief stint at Live Corp, Flint got embarrassed during the presentation. So he applied for a promotion. Chester reveals that Flint is producing food-animal hybrids while FLDSMDFR is still in operation. One of which attacks Swallow Falls personnel. Chester tells Flint to go to the island alone, find FLDSMDFR, and insert the USB stick with the murder code to stop him.
