If you were looking forward to the 2020 release of one of Disney’s next animated original movies, Gigantic, we have some sad news to pass along. Today, Disney – Pixar Studios announced the project has been suspended indefinitely.
The project was originally announced at the D23 Expo in June 2015 to much fanfare. Songs by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who wrote many of the songs for Frozen, were supposed to be featured in the Jack and the Beanstalk reimagination. The movie was originally scheduled to be released in 2018 but was pushed back until November 2020. After today’s announcement, it is now unknown if the film will ever be produced.
Ed Catmull, president of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios, released this announcement, saying,“It’s 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 isn’t working. With Gigantic, we’ve come to that point, and although it’s a difficult decision, we are ending active development for now.”
Catmull did go on to say, “We are focusing our energies on another project that has been in the works, which we’ll be sharing more about soon, now set for Thanksgiving 2020.” Additional details about this new project are still unknown.
