'Gigantic' Canceled By Disney Animation

'Gigantic' Canceled By Disney Animation
From Slashfilm - October 10, 2017

Its not often that you see a movie studio like Disney cancel a big budget animated film this far into production, but it happens. Gigantic, Walt Disney Animations take on the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale (in which Jack befriends a female giant), is no longer on the way.

The project was first announced in 2015 and has had a troubled road to the big screen, having been delayed twice on the release calendar. Inside Out writer Meg LeFauvewas broughton board as co-director to help rework the movie, but apparently the story was not up to Disneys quality standards.Why was Gigantic canceled?

Walt Disney Animation Group president Ed Catmull issued a statement to THR saying the following:

Its 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 isnt working. With Gigantic, weve come to that point, and although its 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 well be sharing more about soon, now set for Thanksgiving 2020.
