D23 is Disney’s big time expo, their SDCC. We knew we’d get some big announcement but I wasn’t ready for their next animated hit. During their big animation panel, Disney has announced that in 2018, a retelling of the classic Jack in the Beanstalk tale will be released with Gigantic.
It may seem like we’re making a “Big” deal about this but consider this. You remember that song Let it go? Is you child still playing it? Well the Oscar Winning songwriters (Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez) behind the Frozen hit have now been tabbed for Gigantic, so you know they expect this to be huge. Don’t believe me yet? Nathan Greno, director of Tangled, is going to direct Gigantic, as well. This could be good.
Here is their official synopsis, “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.”
Gigantic is set to come out in 2018.
What do you think of this “giant” news?
