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's Nathan Greno as co-directors, and Frozen's Robert 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.
