An upcoming Jack and the Beanstalk-inspired animated film by Disney Animation, which was originally scheduled to open in 2020, has now been tabled indefinitely. The examples of failed projects are numerous in the history of cinema, but you wouldn't necessarily imagine that Disney would abandon a project in the work for years and as your it, without warning. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the House of Mouse has ceased production on very big, their animated take on the classic Jack and the Beanstalk story. Several names from some of Disney's most successful animated movies had been attached to develop the project, including Inside Out co-writer Meg LeFauve and Tangled'sNathan Greno as co-directors, and Frozen'sRobert Lopez and Kirsten Anderson-Lopez as songwriters. We have arrived at this point with the enormous and, although this is a hard decision, we put an end to its development for the moment.
Catmull also mentions that Disney will be focusing on "another project that has been in the works, which we'll be sharing more about soon, now set for Thanksgiving 2020". Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez had signed on to write the music for enormous, and the husband-wife duo even sang one of the songs during D23.
In the Catmull-Lasseter era, both Disney and Pixar have publicly announced films and subsequently shelved them.
Set in Spain during the the Age of Exploration, the story was to center on "Jack as he discovers a world of giants hidden within clouds and befriends a 60-foot female giant". Pixar faced multiple delays on the 2015 film The Good Dinosaur, which was first announced back in 2009.
Next up for Disney Animation is Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, which is set to hit theaters on November 21st, 2018.
