Utilizing a cast of thousands and myriad CG special effects powered by Threshold’s association with IBM, Foodfight! is a world unlike anything seen before. In addition to the unique characters developed for the story – and voiced by the cast of stars – the creators have acquired the rights to include nearly every consumer packaged goods company’s characters as the supermarket comes to life. Included are Mr. Clean, Charlie the Tuna, Twinkie the Kid and hundreds more, who take on the role of supporting background “actors” in the film. Related Links:More Movies on Starpulse
