Disney has announced it is cancelling work on upcoming animation enormous.

An upcoming Jack and the Beanstalk-inspired animated film by Disney Animation, which was originally scheduled to open in 2020, has now been tabled indefinitely.

While Catmull's statement leaves the door cracked open to revisit very big again in the future, the film now joins the likes of Pixar's Newt and Disney's King of the Elves as projects shelved after long periods of development. Disney-Pixar's The Good Dinosaur was in development limbo for several years before finally being released in 2015.

Upcoming for Disney Animation is Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 on November 21, 2018 and Frozen 2 on November 27, 2019.

Police were called to the home of film producer Harvey Weinstein's daughter Remy on Wednesday, following fears of "suicide". Law enforcement sources confirm officers responded to a call from Remy, who said her father was "suicidal and depressed ".

Huge would've been directed by Nathan Greno of Tangled and Meg LeFauve of Inside Out with songs by Robert and Kristen Anderson-Lopez of Frozen.

With Gigantic no longer in active development at Disney, the studio will move ahead on another project to fill the 2020 release date formerly held by animated film. Sadly, however, another project in development, Gigantic, has been cancelled by the studio. Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kirsten Anderson-Lopez were going to write the music.

Instead of "Gigantic", the studio is focusing on another project which is now being tabled for Thanksgiving 2020. Disney Animation announced at CinemaCon in April that enormous was set to release on November 25, 2020, two years later than originally planned.

What that new animated project will be is yet to be seen, but THR revealed that insiders are saying it will be an original feature.
