News   Up Next for Disney: Jack and the Beanstalk Screen Musical from "Frozen" Songwriters Robert and Kristen Anderson-Lopez
 
Academy Award-winning "Frozen" songwriters Robert and Kristen Anderson-Lopez will score the new Disney animated feature film "Gigantic," a reinvention of the Jack in the Beanstalk tale.

Directed by Nathan Greno ("Tangled") and produced by Dorothy McKim, "Gigantic" will premiere in 2018. Disney revealed the following details on the tale: "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?"

The Lopez's latest musical Up Here is currently premiering at the La Jolla Playhouse. Separately, he's the EGOT-winning writer of Book of Mormon and Avenue Q, while she's the writer of the Drama Desk-winning musical In Transit. Together, the golden duo have also earned a host of Emmys.
