Disney reveals plans for an animated feature based on the ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ story to be directed by Nathan Greno (‘Tangled’) and produced by ‘Get A Horse!’ producer Dorothy McKim.
Gigantic, Disney’s unique take on Jack and the Beanstalk, will feature music from Oscar-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (Frozen’s “Let it Go”), who greeted D23 EXPO fans in song alongside director Nathan Greno (Tangled) and producer Dorothy McKim (Get A Horse!).
Set in Spain during the Age of Exploration, Disney’s Gigantic follows adventure-seeker Jack as he discovers a world of giants hidden within the clouds. He hatches a grand plan with Inma, a 60-foot-tall, 11-year-old girl, and agrees to help her find her way home. But he doesn’t account for her super-sized personality -- and who knew giants were so down to earth? Gigantic hits theaters in 2018.
