Cancelled Movies. Wiki

Gigantic was a planned computer-animated musical comedy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios, revealed during the 2015 D23[1], 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 was replaced with Raya and the Last Dragon.


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[]

  1. 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. The untitled 2020 film was called titled Raya and the Last Dragon before Soul took the slot pushing it to March 5, 2021. As of right now, it is unknown whether Gigantic may or may not get revived with possibilities sometime in the future.
  • Gigantic was pushed back to 2018 in 2015 and was originally set to be entitled Giants.
  • Among Duke Weaselton's bootleg discs in Zootopia is one for an animal version called Giraffic, with Jack, played by a squirrel, climbing a giraffe neck instead of a beanstalk.
  • Gigantic was originally scheduled to be released on March 9, 2018. However, on June 30, 2016, Walt Disney Animation Studios announced that Ralph Breaks the Internet would be released on that date, and Gigantic would launch instead on November 21, 2018. The film would be delayed again for a 2020 release, after Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 took the previous November 21, 2018 release, until eventually being pulled from Disney's film slate.
