Disney Scraps Animated 'Jack and the Beanstalk' Movie, 'Gigantic'

Disney's upcoming animated feature big has been cancelled.

Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios has put an upcoming fairy tale adaptation on the shelf.

While Catmull's statement leaves the door cracked open to revisit huge again in the future, the film now joins the likes of Pixar's Newt and Disney's King of the Elves as projects shelved after long periods of development.

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.

With Gigantic no longer in active development at Disney, the studio will move ahead on another project to fill the 2020 release date formerly held by animated film. "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". In the last five years alone, the Best Animated Feature Film Oscar either went to a Pixar or Disney Animation film: including courageous (2010) and Inside Out (2015) from Pixar, and Frozen, Big Hero 6 and Zootopia from Disney.

Enormous was supposed to be the next Disney Animated feature after Frozen 2, which we now know is dropping in 2019 alongside Disney's live-action remake of The Lion King.

The new 2020 project hasn't been revealed, but there are rumors that it's going to be an original film. LeFauve, of course, was part of the initial writing team for Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel;however, she had to leave the project in order to focus her attention on very big.

Are you disappointed with the cancellation of enormous? Additionally, Frozen songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez had been brought aboard to pen the movie's original songs.
