Disney shelves huge following development woes

Share

An original tale inspired by Jack and the Beanstalk, the film was originally set to release in November 2018, but a delay until 2020 signalled the difficulty Disney was having getting the project off the ground. The examples of failed projects are numerous in the history of cinema, but you wouldn't necessarily imagine that Disney would abandon a project in the work for years and as your it, without warning. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney's updated take on Jack and the Beanstalk was removed from the studio's release schedule following what is said to be "creative hurdles". Yet, this is exactly what has happened with big, ex-Giants, the new film from Nathan Greno, director of the excellent Rapunzel.

Although Disney had initially confirmed the film for a November 25, 2020 release, The Hollywood Reporter says that the studio ran into too many creative obstacles, and huge will be shelved for the foreseeable future.

Enormous was first announced in at D23 Expo 2015 and was scheduled to be released in 2020.

The controller can send data wirelessly to the auto from up to one kilometer away. In total four computers and six robots were needed to make the auto work.

"Sometimes, no matter how much we love an idea or how much heart goes into it, we find that it just isn't working". "Frozen" songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez were on board to write the music for the film with husband-wife singing one of the songs at the event. "With Gigantic, we've come to that point, and although it's a hard decision, we are ending active development for now".

Next up for Disney Animation is Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, which is set to hit theaters on November 21st, 2018.

There's no telling if Disney will ever revisit big. "We focus our energy on other projects, that we will be unveiling soon, and which are now planned for Thanksgiving 2020".
