Disney ends ‘Gigantic’ project, announces a mysterious 2020 project

In an article which states “Disney pulls the plug,” Deadline has confirmed that Disney Animation is shelving its Jack and the Beanstalk animated project which was scheduled for release on Thanksgiving 2020.

Instead Disney Animation is pursuing another project for that release date, the details of which are still TBD.

THR reports that Disney’s creative team never quite cracked the project and are now moving on.

“In the revised tale directed by Meg LeFauve and Nathan Greno, Jack meets a female giant.  Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kirsten Anderson-Lopez were also penning songs for the film. Word is that production hit creative hurdles,” Deadline reports.

Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios president Ed Catmull told THR “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.”

Collider has other news: Maleficent 2’ Heats Up with ‘Pirates 5’ Co-Director Joachim Rønning.

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 arrives in theaters on Nov. 21, 2018 and Frozen 2 on Nov. 27, 2019.
