Transported to Barsoom, a Civil War vet discovers a barren planet seemingly inhabited by 12-foot tall barbarians. Finding himself prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter Woola and a princess in desperate need of a savior.
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
Creating the beanstalk involved two main requirements: set extension for shots of the actors interacting with the beanstalk (shot against a bluescreen), and complete CG renderings for shots of the beanstalk growing and extending from Earth into the world of the giants. See more »
when the beanstalk first falls we see that it flattens the Kings red tent, however afterwards the king returns into the tent to get his daughters bracelet, then also the princess changes into her armor while in the tent. See more »
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.
