Storyline

Sent to the market by his uncle to sell their horse and buy thatch for their roof, Jack meets the beautiful Princess Isabelle whom he rescues her from ruffians. He returns home only with a handful of beans given to him by a monk who claimed they were sacred but that does little to impress his uncle who tosses them away. In the night the Princess arrives having run off to keep from marrying Roderick who is clearly only interested in becoming king. Soon the beans take root with a giant stalk carrying away the princess and Jack's house. He soon sets off on an adventure with the king's guards to rescue the princess only to find that a mythical land filled with giants really exists. Written by garykmcd

When the king begins chopping the beanstalk with his sword, he is cutting nearly straight down from overhead on a horizontal root, but immediately afterward from a different angle he is cutting with a sideways swing at the vertical stalk. See more »

Brilliant for all the family.
28 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Being a kid at heart and not liking broad beans as a youngster I had to find what a few magical beans could do.

The cast had a quite a few well known actors which supported the quality of this film and the graphics were outstanding . The giants were superb and these would have made up for anything if the film had been bad, but there wasn't anything bad at all

The way it started as a bedtime story and the way it finished at the the ..... was a very well thought out!

Family's will love it - entertainingly all the way through that will keep your kids on the edge of their seats.
