Disney Shutters Shutters Gigantic Project


Leave it to the house of mouse to deliver the biggest disappointment for this week, as Deadline.com recently reveals that development on the upcoming project titled Gigantic has been axed. The project, which was said to be an adaptation of the fairy tale Jack & the Beanstalk, was originally scheduled for a Thanksgiving 2020 release date and has already been associated with Meg LeFauve (Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur) and Nathan Greno (Tangled).

Gigantic was supposed to give a slightly different take on Jack and the Beanstalk’s story, with Jack encountering a female giant. But some sources say that the project was ultimately abandoned due to creative problems.

“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,” said Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios president Ed Catmull. “With Gigantic, we’ve come to that point, and although it’s a difficult decision, we are ending active development for now. 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.”
