Recently, Disney announced a brand new food art competition series called “Foodtastic” would be coming soon to Disney+.
“Foodtastic,” an unscripted build competition series for Disney+ where teams of contestants are challenged to create whimsical, larger-than-life, Disney-inspired works of art made out of all types of food including everything from cheese and butter to fruits and vegetables. NYC’s City Cakes founder Chef Benny Rivera and FLOUR SHOP founder Amirah Kassem will serve as judges for “Foodtastic.”
Anthony Mendez has announced on Social Media that he has joined the series and will be providing the voice over for the show. He has previously done voice-over work on “Jane The Virgin”, where he won two Emmy’s for. Anthony received a third Outstanding Narrator nomination (2019) for his work on PBS’s three-part documentary series, Wonders of Mexico. He can also be heard on movie trailers for major studios.
In each self-contained episode, three teams of food artists transform iconic characters into extravagant masterpieces that tell a story from Disney’s legendary IP. These food sculptures will be judged purely on their design, technical skills and narrative, and not by taste. Unused food from each competition will be donated to local food banks.
The 11-episode series started production this week and is slated to premiere on Disney+ later this year.
