The D23 Expo was over this past weekend and man, it was a big event. We (or at least the people in attendance) saw stuff from Star Wars, Marvel, numerous Disney animated and live-action movies, and we got news on video games and theme park attractions. It was great to see so much coming from the House of Mouse, however, when the dust settled, we realized that there were a few things we expected to see that never popped their heads up.

In at least one case, the lack of news was understandable, though still a bad move, in my opinion. However, in the case of the others, we have to wonder why we never saw anything. Is no news really good news in this case, or was the fact that certain films were not mentioned an indication that things might not be moving quite as quickly as we might hope? Here's the news we didn't get at D23.

Gigantic

Gigantic

Going into D23, Walt Disney Animation Studios had several films locked and loaded on their release schedule and the assembled crowd saw, or at least heard about, all of them, except one. Gigantic is Disney's take on Jack and the Beanstalk and it was announced at D23 a couple years ago with a release date of 2018. It was then set for spring 2019, then pushed to fall when Wreck-It Ralph 2 was announced, then pushed into 2020 following the announcement of Frozen 2. Seeing it moved to make way for big sequels is no shock but the fact that it was pushed out a year after this last schedule change, and that it was completely ignored this weekend, makes us wonder if there really isn't something going on here that might mean the film is having gigantic (get it?) problems.
