Gigantic was a Disney animated musical based on the fairy tale "Jack and the Beanstalk" that was cancelled in 2017.
According to the Disney wikia, the plot is as follows: "Set in Spain during the Age of Exploration, the film followed Jack as he discovers a world of giants hidden within clouds. Jack befriends the female giant Inma, who's "11 years old, 60 feet tall, fiery, feisty and a lot to control" and treats him like a living doll, Greno said. Meanwhile, the antagonists, Storm Giants, stand at 120 feet."
Gigantic began production in 2013, then under the title Giants, and was announced under the former title at D23 in 2015, then slated for a March 2018 release. It was under the direction of Nathan Greno, who had directed Tangled, and Meg LeFauve, who was a screenwriter for Captain Marvel, Inside Out, and The Good Dinosaur and was to feature songs by Robert Lopez and Kirsten Anderson-Lopez, both of Frozen fame. The release date was later moved to November 2018, and then again to 2020, until in October 2017 when Disney announced that the film had been shelved because it "wasn't working".
Before the film's cancellation, Disney had released several pieces of concept art, included an Easter egg in the 2016 animated feature Zootopia as the film Giraffic, and included part of one of the intended songs, "Little Man", in its initial D23 presentation. No further materials had been released since its D23 announcement, and no recordings of the song featured has surfaced.
