Meg LeFauve, screenwriter of Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur, will co-direct Gigantic alongside Nathan Greno (Tangled). The Disney animated feature is currently scheduled for release on November 18, 2018.
When the project was officially announced last year, Greno described it as “the definitive version of Jack And The Beanstalk,” while promising that “It’s not what you’ve seen before. It’s not one big castle with one big giant walking around.” In this new version, Jack discovers a world of giants in the clouds and teams up with a 60-foot-tall, 11-year-old girl to find his way back home.
It has previously been announced that Frozen’s husband-and-wife songwriting team Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez will provide songs, and Dorothy McKim (Meet the Robinsons, Get a Horse!) will produce.
