‘Gigantic’: Disney Shuts Down Animated ‘Jack and The Beanstalk’ Movie
  |  @   |  

Back in 2015 Disney announced a new animated project titled Gigantic. The movie was to be based on the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale, and had Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur, and Captain Marvel writer Meg LeFauve and Nathan Greno (Tangled) attached to direct. It even had a 2020 release date locked in.

  |  @   |  

At D23 Expo 2015 yesterday, as the presentations continued to roll out, John Lasseter excitedly talked about Disney Animation Studios’ next project, a retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk. To put a twist on the fairy tale classic, Lasseter revealed that the film wouldn’t be set in a fairy tale land, but rather it would take place in Spain during the early “Age of Exploration,” a seemingly fitting setting for a film about exploring areas unknown/unexplored.
