D23 announces a new version of Jack and the Beanstalk Gigantic


Disney has just announced at its D23 Expo plans for a new twist on an old tale, with their “definitive” take on “Jack in the Beanstalk,” coming in 2018. The animated film, titled Gigantic, will take place in Spain during the Age of Discovery, and feature Jack becoming friends with a child princess who is also a giantess. The movie will also be a musical a la Frozen, and will feature the same song writing team of Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (so expect earworms!)
Gigantic (from Tangled director Nathan Greno) will also feature more than just a couple living on a cloud, and will actually introduce an entire world of giants, including Storm Giants who wreak havoc. Also, don’t expect a love story between Jack and the princess — he’s a grown man that she thinks he is a doll, basically. Only friendship, guys. Only. Friendship.
 I wish to thank D23 for sharing this information.
