Disney’s ‘Goldie & Bear’ Mixes Fairy Tales With Digital Distribution

20 August 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Walt Disney wants to put a modern twist on classic fairy tales, and not just in the way they are depicted on the TV screen.

When the company’s Disney Junior cable network launches “Goldie & Bear,” an updated take on everything from “The Three Bears” to “Jack and the Beanstalk,” it will do so by making the series available on September 12 via its Watch Disney Junior streaming-video mobile app to users who subscribe to the cable network, and then on TV about two months later, creating a vehicle that blends a taste of the Brothers Grimm with video-on-demand.

“We are trying to keep these classic stories, and classic characters, in kids’ minds,” said Nancy Kanter, executive vice president of original programming and general manager of Disney Junior Worldwide. With school systems placing more emphasis on math, science and analysis of documents, perhaps there’s less room for Tom Thumb and Hansel and Gretel? »

Gigantic Is Disney’s Musical Spin On Jack And The Beanstalk; Animated Film Slated For 2018

17 August 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Over the weekend, Disney hosted its overly successful D23 expo, detailing early plans for Pixar sequels such as Finding Dory and Toy Story 4, offering the stage to Star Wars: The Force Awakens at one point and, in an announcement that quietly flew under the radar, unveiled its new take on Jack and the Beanstalk in the form of Gigantic.

Billed as an animated musical, the studio’s project will be situated in Spain during the famed Age of Discovery of the early 15th century. With Europe’s superpowers hitting the high seas in search of land, exploration has taken precedent across the continent. But for Jack, he’ll have his eyes trained on the skies after crossing paths with a child princess, one who just so happens to be a giantess.

With Tangled director Nathan Greno behind the lens and a set-up that bears semblance to Frozen, Disney Animation »

Tangled co-director making Gigantic with Frozen songwriters

16 August 2015 9:59 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Walt Disney Animation Studios has a new musical in the works - and it's all about Jack And The Beanstalk...

Just because Frozen may have taken the lion's share of the acclaim aimed at Walt Disney Animation Studios in recent times, it'd be remiss to overlook the terrific Tangled too. A retelling of the Rapunzel story, it was directed by Byron Howard and Nathan Greno, and remains a strong piece of work.

Howard is one of the directors of Walt Disney Animation Studios' next film, Zootropolis. And as for Greno? Well, after making a significant contribution to Big Hero 6, his new project has now been confirmed. He's directing an animated, musical take on Jack And The Beanstalk for the studio.

It goes by the name of Gigantic (having previously been known as Giants), and it's going to centre on an 11-year old giant girl by the name of Imma, »

Disney Announces Gigantic

15 August 2015 3:08 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

While a lot of what Disney’s Feature Animation team had to show at this weekend’s D23 convention event was for films we already knew something about, it was left to Gigantic to be almost completely new. Director Nathan Greno and producer Dorothy McKim introduced a first look at the film. And though it has been lurking on the IMDb for a while under the title Giants, the movie’s proper synopsis and character information was announced, along with the fact that Frozen song-writing duo Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez will be providing the music.Set in Spain during the age of exploration (so somewhere roughly between the 15th and 17th centuries), this new take on Jack And The Beanstalk finds adventure-seeker Jack heading into the clouds in what starts as a fairly traditional take on the fairy tale. But things soon change when he meets Inma, am 11-year-old »

Disney Announces Gigantic For 2018

15 August 2015 5:08 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With Tangled and Frozen under their belt, Disney continue to re-imagine classic fairy tales with Gigantic, an animated musical take on Jack and the Beanstalk that promises to quite unlike any version of the story so far. Set in Spain during the Age of Exploration, it follows adventure seeking Jack who forges a friendship with Inma, an eleven year old girl who just happens to be a sixty foot tall giantess, on his journey to escape the land of giants. Tangled’s Nathan Greno will be at the helm, and Frozen’s songwriting team of Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez will be providing the no doubt infuriatingly catchy songs. Gigantic hit our screen in 2018. »

Things are looking up at Walt Disney Animation Studios - way up. Gigantic, Disney's unique take on Jack and the Beanstalk, will feature music from Oscar-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who greeted D23 Expo fans in signature style-in song-alongside director Nathan Greno (Tangled) and producer Dorothy McKim (Get a Horse). 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.
