Disney cancels Jack And The Beanstalk adaptation Gigantic

Disney has cancelled production of new animated epic Gigantic. 

The new adventure, which is based on Jack And The Beanstalk, was due to see Inside Out co-writer Meg LeFauve and Tangled's Nathan Greno directing the project, while Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kirsten Anderson-Lopez were to have written songs for the film. , but it has now been shelved. 

It was due to be released in November in 2020, but it has now been shelved. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the movie's demise is due to creative differences. 

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."

He continued: "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."
