The studio had a movie called huge which was an adaptation of Jack and the Beanstalk set for a release in 2020, but for now it seems that Disney has shelved the project and stopped all active development on it.

Despite Disney's best intentions, they have announced that their current animation project, Gigantic, has been moved into inactive development. Sadly, however, another project in development, Gigantic, has been cancelled by the studio. In the last five years alone, the Best Animated Feature Film Oscar either went to a Pixar or Disney Animation film: including fearless (2010) and Inside Out (2015) from Pixar, and Frozen, Big Hero 6 and Zootopia from Disney.

Despite Walt Disney Animation Studios being at the top of their game this decade, not everything in their lineup is smooth sailing. We have arrived at this point with the big and, although this is a hard decision, we put an end to its development for the moment. The film was originally set to be released in 2020 and would have featured Jack making friends with a female giant child.

South Korea claims North hacked nuclear attack response plans
Ri has previously called Trump "President Evil" and his comments are likely to fuel an escalating war of words between the U.S. The drills were conducted not long after Lee broke the news about the alleged cyberattacks to reporters.

As it stands, Disney Animation is working on the release of Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 in 2018 and Frozen 2 in 2019. "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". Disney and Pixar have had previous projects that went nowhere including King of the Elves and Newt. The project was to feature original music from the Oscar-winning songwriting team of Robert LOPEZ and Kristen-Anderson Lopez.

The new project has not been detailed yet but it will be an original feature.

Though Gigantic is dormant for now, it doesn't necessarily meant that the film won't come back to life.
