Disney Shelves Animated Gigantic


It seems Disney’s Jack and the Beanstalk inspired Gigantic won’t see the light of day. The animated project was just canned by Disney Animation and will no longer be released Thanksgiving 2020 due to creative hurdles that hit production. Instead, Disney will be pursuing another project for that date but no more details were announced.

Gigantic was set to tell the revised tale of Jack and the Beanstalk where Jack meets a female giant. Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kirsten Anderson-Lopez were attached to pen the songs for the film.

The next Disney animated film, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, hits theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.
