Without question, Disney has been the gold standard in animation since the release of its first full-length feature film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937. Disney and Pixar have had previous projects that went nowhere including King of the Elves and Newt. His full statement reads as follows: "Sometimes, no matter how much we love an idea or how much heart goes into it, we find that it just isn't working".
Ever since the release of Tangled, it seems that Walt Disney Animation has found a new Renaissance what with the successful releases of films like Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Zootopia, and Moana. However, it looks like all that work isn't going to pay off since it's going to be canceled.
Big was to release in 2020, only a year after Frozen 2's slated release on November 27, 2019.
Apparently the studio got to the point where the creative process has hit a wall and they are "ending active development for now".
Gigantic, Disney Animation's original feature project that was to have been released in 2020, is being shelved.
Instead of "Gigantic", the studio is focusing on another project which is now being tabled for Thanksgiving 2020.
No details yet on which film will take Gigantic's place in the lineup, though the report notes that it is another original feature.
Huge would have been directed by Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) and Nathan Greno (Tangled) and was set to feature music from Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kirsten Anderson-Lopez.
Though Gigantic is dormant for now, it doesn't necessarily meant that the film won't come back to life.
Fortunately for the three creatives, there's plenty of high-profile work ahead, as Lopez and Anderson-Lopez are sure to craft songs for Frozen 2; while LaFauve is busy at work co-writing the screenplay for Disney-Marvel's Captain Marvel with Nicole Perlman and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
