Disney Shuts Down Development On Jack And The Beanstalk Animated Movie 'Gigantic'

Share

Despite Disney's best intentions, they have announced that their current animation project, Gigantic, has been moved into inactive development. It was going to be based on the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale where Jack makes a friend with a giant girl.

According to Ed Catmull, president of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios, it was a tough call.

With Gigantic no longer in active development at Disney, the studio will move ahead on another project to fill the 2020 release date formerly held by animated film.

Despite Walt Disney Animation Studios being at the top of their game this decade, not everything in their lineup is smooth sailing. "We are focusing our energies on another project that has been in the works, which we'll be sharing more about soon, now set for Thanksgiving 2020". This is where their then-upcoming feature big comes in, which we are sad to report has been canceled.

Gigantic, Disney Animation's original feature project that was to have been released in 2020, is being shelved.

The new project that Catmull mentions hasn't been given any further details, but insiders (via THR) note that it is an original concept.

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. Next up, Disney Animation has Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, which is slated to hit theaters on November 21, 2018, and Frozen 2 set for November 27, 2019.

With all the works that come out each week, it could be wrong to believe that the cinema has become a discipline that is easy and you just have to snap your fingers to lead a project.
