The Disney animated feature Gigantic, that was said to be a rework of Jack and the Beanstalk in which Jack befriends a female giant, has been shelved.
Confirming the same, Walt Disney Animation Group president Ed Catmull. “Sometimes, no matter how much we love an idea or how much heart goes into it, we find that it just isn’t working.”
The film was announced publicly in 2015. Then, director Nathan Greno, known to have co-directed Tangled said, “We want to make the definitive version of Jack and the Beanstalk. It’s not what you’ve seen before. It’s not one big castle with one big giant walking around.”
If one may remember that Meg LeFauve, screenwriter of the Pixar films Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur joined Greno as co-director last year.
