Gigantic was a planned computer-animated musical comedy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios, revealed during the 2015 D23, and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Nathan Greno (Tangled) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out, Captain Marvel) were set to direct it, and it was initially scheduled to be the 59th animated feature in the Disney Animated Canon, following the release of Frozen 2 in November 2019. On October 10, 2017, Disney announced that the project has been cancelled and will be replaced with a currently untitled project.
Set in Spain during the Age of Exploration, the film followed Jack as he discovers a world of giants hidden within clouds. Jack befriends the female giant Inma, who's "11 years old, 60 feet tall, fiery, feisty and a lot to control" and treats him like a living doll, Greno said. Meanwhile, the antagonists, Storm Giants, stand at 120 feet.
Why It Was Cancelled
- According to Disney and Pixar Animation President Ed Catmull, the project was cancelled due to "creative differences."
Disney already has an untitled animated film that is set for release on November 25, 2020, replacing the old date for Gigantic. It's currently unknown whether the untitled 2020 film will be an original project or a sequel to other animated Disney movies like Big Hero 6 and Zootopia. As of right now, it is unknown whether Gigantic may or may not get revived sometime in the future.
