Disney withdraws 'Jack and the Beanstalk' project

Gigantic Disney ends development on Jack and the Beanstalk original feature, Gigantic

The project was being developed as an updated take on the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale, in which Jack befriends a female giant.

Both Disney Animation and Pixar have grown leaps and bounds since then, with Ed Catmull serving as the animation studio's president and John Lasseter as its chief creative officer.

The project was initially announced back in 2015 during Disney's D23 fan convention.

Tangled's Nathan Greno and Inside Out writer Meg LeFauve were set to co-direct enormous from the latter's script, about Jack (of beanstalk-climbing fame) befriending a female giant. We've come to that point, and although it's a hard decision, we are ending active development for now.

Ever since the release of Tangled, it seems that Walt Disney Animation has found a new Renaissance what with the successful releases of films like Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Zootopia, and Moana.

Very big was to be set in Spain during the Age of Exploration, with an 11-year-old Jack befriending a female giant named Inma. "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". Disney Animation announced at CinemaCon in April that enormous was set to release on November 25, 2020, two years later than originally planned.

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.

On the Pixar side of Disney's animation arm there's Coco, set for November, The Incredibles 2 next summer and Toy Story 4 the year after that. However, the film only pulled in $330 million globally, the lowest total revenue for a Pixar title thus far. Later down the line, the studio will debut Frozen 2 on November 27, 2019.
