"We hope this will be the definitive version of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' ... with comedy and deep emotion," director Nathan Greno told the media gathered at the Anaheim Convention Center.

The film follows Jack as he discovers a world of giants hidden in the sky and befriends one -- an enormous, 11-year-old girl named Inma.

The Lopezes created the music for the Disney blockbuster Frozen.
