Disney Shelves ‘Gigantic’!

10 Comments

I’m sorry, I still can’t believe this news! The upcoming animated Disney Canon film that was set to be released in 2020, Gigantic, has now been shelved! Gigantic, a new musical take on Jack and the Beanstalk, was the upcoming animated Disney film that I was most looking forward to! It was being directed by Nathan Greno and Meg LeFauve and would have featured songs by the Lopezes of Frozen fame. It was supposed to be released earlier in 2018 before being pushed back to 2020. And now, it’s been totally shelved.

Sigh…is anyone else distraught over this news?
