However, it looks like all that work isn't going to pay off since it's going to be canceled.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney's updated take on Jack and the Beanstalk was removed from the studio's release schedule following what is said to be "creative hurdles". With 'Gigantic, ' we've come to that point, and although it's a hard decision, we are ending active development for now.

Despite Disney's best intentions, they have announced that their current animation project, Gigantic, has been moved into inactive development.

Big was supposed to be the next Disney Animated feature after Frozen 2, which we now know is dropping in 2019 alongside Disney's live-action remake of The Lion King.

Elsewhere, Pixar is preparing to launch the animated musical Coco on November 22, and Disney Animation will release Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 on November 21 2018. Dominating the hand-drawn animation genre for decades after that, the studio quickly adapted to computer animation following the groundbreaking debut of Pixar's Toy Story in 1994, a film that Disney distributed at the time and company it became permanent partners with after it purchased the animation studio in 2006. "Gigantic" was originally set for release November 25, 2020, but the studio have cited "hitting a creative wall" as the reason for the project's death. "We focus our energy on other projects, that we will be unveiling soon, and which are now planned for Thanksgiving 2020". Although details on the feature are scarce, insiders have reported that it will be original. The songs were to be done by Frozen songwriting duo Robert Lopez and Kirsten Anderson-Lopez, while Inside Out co-writer Meg LeFauve and Tangled co-director Nathan Greno were assigned as directors.
