How do you like them seeds? Disney is rebooting Jack and the Beanstalk for 2018.
Set in Spain during the Age of Exploration and helmed by Tangled co-director Nathan Greno, Gigantic is also produced by Meet the Robinsons and Get a Horse!’s Dorothy McKim, so it’s got some credibility in the period adventure department. Which is good, because everyone has pretty much heard the classic English fairytale before.
“We want to make the definitive version of Jack And The Beanstalk,” said Greno at Disney’s D23 Expo. No cast has been announced, although Disney has secured the services of Frozen’s husband-and-wife songwriting team Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
