At the Walt Disney Animated Studios presentation at the Anaheim D23 Expo, John Lassester has announced a new feature film from the studio: Gigantic, a “new spin” on Jack and the Beanstalk, from Tangled director Nathan Greno.
The film will open in 2018, and has been described as a “definitive” animated adaptation of the store, which was recently portrayed on screen in both Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Slayer and Disney’s own musical Into The Woods.
Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the songwriters of Disney’s smash-hit Frozen will be involved.
The story will take place in Spain during “the age of discovery”.
More to come…
