Disney Cancels Gigantic Movie

Danny Woods

Pixar's Newt was also cancelled due to similarities to Blue Sky's macaw rom-com Rio, released in 2011.

Both Disney Animation and Pixar have grown leaps and bounds since then, with Ed Catmull serving as the animation studio's president and John Lasseter as its chief creative officer. Who knows, maybe big will go the same way; a decade later the project might come out with a brand new title and concept we can look forward to again. At that time, Nathan Greno-who worked Tangled, Disney's spin on the Rapunzel story-was attached to direct. Dorothy McKim, the director of production behind a ton of Disney films such as The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast, was on board to produce.

Elsewhere, Pixar is preparing to launch the animated musical Coco on November 22, and Disney Animation will release Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 on November 21 2018. We have arrived at this point with the huge and, although this is a hard decision, we put an end to its development for the moment. "We are focusing our energies on another project that has been in the works, which we'll be sharing more about soon, now set for Thanksgiving 2020". "Gigantic" was originally set for release November 25, 2020, but the studio have cited "hitting a creative wall" as the reason for the project's death. Huge had Frozen's songwriters on board to pen original tunes for the movie, while Inside Out co-writer Meg LeFauve and Tangled director Nathan Greno were co-directing it.

With all the works that come out each week, it could be wrong to believe that the cinema has become a discipline that is easy and you just have to snap your fingers to lead a project. Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kirsten Anderson-Lopez were going to write the music.
