Disney is reaching for the clouds, announcing today at the D23 EXPO that it is creating a unique take on Jack and the Beanstalk. The movie, Gigantic, will feature music from songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez who took home an oscar for their music in Frozen. They greeted the fans at D23 EXPO in signature style—in song—alongside director Nathan Greno (Tangled) and producer Dorothy McKim (Get A Horse).
Set in Spain during the Age of Exploration, Disney’s Gigantic will follow 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. However, he may not be prepared for her super-sized personality.
Gigantic hits theaters in 2018.
