Disney Pictures shelves making of Gigantic


There may be hardly anyone who must not have loved the fable Jack and the Beanstalk.

Going by its popularity with the masses, Disney Pictures had planned to make Gigantic.


Now, it is heard that the mouse house has scrapped the making of the film. Initially, the film was originally set to release in 2018, but later it was pushed to 2020.

Set in Spain during the Age of Exploration, the film was to follow adventure-seeker Jack as he discovers a world of giants hidden within the clouds. He hatches a grand plan with a 60-foot-tall, 11-year-old girl and agrees to help her find her way home.

Talking about the project’s collapse, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios president Ed Catmull said, “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. 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.”
