Disney's Gigantic


Quote:
Today, during the Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios: The Upcoming Films panel at D23, Disney Animation announced a new feature film called, Gigantic.

Director Nathan Greno and Producer Dorothy Mckim took the stage, and introduced a reel of still shots they've worked on so far. "How far would you go for your dream? How high would you climb?" The classic magic bean stalk grows, and we see young Jack climbing it. Giants roam the lands, including a young daughter giant that it appears he befriends. The harp, the Goose are both there.

"We are so honored and thrilled to continue the tradition [of bringing fairy tales to film] with Jack and the Beanstalk," Greno said. The movie will take place in Spain, because he thought it reflected the "age of discovery," where Jack is making a discovery above the ground while Spaniards are out discovering the world.

"It's not what you've seen before, the one big giant. This is a world of giants. The first one he meets is an 11 year-old girl named Ima. She's 60 feet tall, and very fiery," he said. She's actually inspired by a kid they met while researching in Spain. "She was a little character, a little ham." When they came back from the trip, they looked at their pictures of her and realized they had a model sheet for a character. "When Ima meets Jack, she thinks he's a toy! The possibilities for comedy are endless."

It's a world of giants, though, including the storm giants, who are up to no good, "wreaking havoc around the world of the giants." So the "tiny little man" and the "11 year-old girl" are trying to stop the storm giants. "Their world will change forever, and it's such a great, unique friendship. It has deep, deep, emotion. I think when you read an old Jack and the Beanstalk story, you don't think it's a big tearjerker, but we want that. We think the stories that last forever are the ones that hit your emotions."

To sweeten the deal, Disney also announced that Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the team from Frozen, are doing the music for the film.

It's about time Disney had a non-mickey mouse version of jack and beanstalk. I like the character designs. I wonder what year the release date will be?

Disney cancelled the movie. I was looking forward to this one.

I hadn't even heard of this until today's post. Too bad... sounded like it had some potential.

But if they think it wasn't worth doing, we may have dodged another "Good Dinosaur."

I was really looking forward to this one and I am extremely disappointed. I wonder what the real reason they cancelled the project was.
