Disney ends development on Jack and the Beanstalk original feature, enormous

Without question, Disney has been the gold standard in animation since the release of its first full-length feature film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937. Other projects like King of the Elves and Newt are now inactive titles for Disney, but with the way Disney puts their own spin of classic fairytales, I was pretty much looking forward to what they had in store for big.

Both Disney Animation and Pixar have grown leaps and bounds since then, with Ed Catmull serving as the animation studio's president and John Lasseter as its chief creative officer. However, it looks like all that work isn't going to pay off since it's going to be canceled.

Ever since the release of Tangled, it seems that Walt Disney Animation has found a new Renaissance what with the successful releases of films like Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Zootopia, and Moana. "We focus our energy on other projects, that we will be unveiling soon, and which are now planned for Thanksgiving 2020". Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez had signed on to write the music for big, and the husband-wife duo even sang one of the songs during D23. "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. Additionally, Frozen songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez had been brought aboard to pen the movie's original songs. Next up, Disney Animation has Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, which is slated to hit theaters on November 21, 2018, and Frozen 2 set for November 27, 2019.
