Enormous would have been directed by Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) and Nathan Greno (Tangled) and was set to feature music from Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kirsten Anderson-Lopez. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the House of Mouse has ceased production on enormous, their animated take on the classic Jack and the Beanstalk story. LeFauve, of course, was part of the initial writing team for Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel;however, she had to leave the project in order to focus her attention on enormous.
"Gigantic" was to be set in Spain during the Age of Exploration and follow Jack as he discovers a world of giants hidden within clouds and befriends a 60-foot female giant.
According to Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios president Ed Catmull in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, the cancellation isn't for a lack of trying.
Apparently the studio got to the point where the creative process has hit a wall and they are "ending active development for now".
Oscar-winning songwriter duo Robert and Kristen Anderson-Lopez were also contributing to the animated feature following their work on Frozen.
Instead of "Gigantic", the studio is focusing on another project which is now being tabled for Thanksgiving 2020. This is where their then-upcoming feature huge comes in, which we are sad to report has been canceled. However, the film only pulled in $330 million globally, the lowest total revenue for a Pixar title thus far.
Disney Animation next has Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, which is set to open November 21, 2018, and Frozen 2, which is slated to bow November 27, 2019.
