Gigantic makes a big impression at D23 EXPO 2015

Disney GiganticDisney’s take on Jack and the Beanstalk, Gigantic, was presented at this year’s Disney Expo.

This unique twist on the familiar fairy tale will feature music from the Oscar-winning team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (Frozen). The songwriting duo, along with director Nathan Greno (Tangled) and producer Dorothy McKim (Get a Horse!) greeted the crowd at the D23 EXPO with a lively song number to promote the film. The crowd was also treated to an early image from the film featuring the hero climbing the beanstalk and coming face to face with a curious giant girl.

Here is the official synopsis of the film:

“Set in Spain during the Age of Exploration, Disney’s Gigantic follows adventure-seeker Jack as he discovers a world of giants hidden within the clouds. He hatches a grand plan with Inma, a 60-foot-tall, 11-year-old girl, and agrees to help her find her way home. But he doesn’t account for her super-sized personality—and who knew giants were so down to earth?”

Gigantic opens in U.S. theaters in 2018.
