Disney Cans 'Gigantic' Movie

For now anyway

Disney's take on the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale, Gigantic, is being shelved for now. The movie which was in development since at least 2013 (known as Giants then) was described as the definitive version on the old fairy tale, with Jack befriending a female giant. The movie was to be co-directed by Meg LeFauve and Nathan Greno and have music by Frozen composers Robert Lopez and Kirsten Anderson-Lopez.

Unfortunately the project did not take root and Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios president Ed Catmull provided the context for today's announcement:

"It's impossible to know when we begin a project how the creative process will unfold, and sometimes, no matter how much we love an idea or how much heart goes into it, we find that it just isn't working" … "With Gigantic, we've come to that point, and although it's a difficult decision, we are ending active development for now."


It isn't all bad news though, as Catmull also announced:

"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."


There might have been a clue that Gigantic may have been hitting some trouble, as earlier this year the movie was moved from November 21, 2018to November 25, 2020.

Now we're curious about what movie will take its place…
