Disney Shelves Jack and the Beanstalk Animated Film Gigantic



The film was originally set to be released in 2020 and would have featured Jack making friends with a female giant child.

Now that huge is no longer being developed, Disney will be moving on to a different project to fill the 2020 release window that was previously occupied by big.

The story would have been set in Spain during the age of exploration (so somewhere roughly between the 15th and 17th centuries), this new take on Jack And The Beanstalk finds adventure-seeker Jack heading into the clouds in what starts as a fairly traditional take on the fairy tale.

Huge would have been directed by Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) and Nathan Greno (Tangled) and was set to feature music from Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kirsten Anderson-Lopez.

"It is impossible to know, when we start a project, how the creative process will evolve and, a few times, regardless of the passion that inspires us, or our love of the topic, it simply does not work".

Disney had originally announced enormous during the D23 Expo in 2015.

Disney is no stranger to cancelling animated films.

No details yet on which film will take Gigantic's place in the lineup, though the report notes that it is another original feature.

Robert Lopez and Kirsten Anderson-Lopez, the songwriting duo from "Frozen", had been signed up to contribute songs for "Gigantic", which was to be directed by Nathan Greno (Rapunzel retelling "Tangled") and "Inside Out" co-writer Meg LeFauve.
