How­ever, the young boy only re­turns with a hand­ful of “mag­i­cal beans” given to him by a monk. Unimpressed, and most cer­tainly dis­ap­pointed, Jack’s un­cle tosses the beans out the win­dow, which grows into a huge beanstalk tow­er­ing into the sky overnight. As Jack ventures into the clouds, he soon dis­cov­ers that giants are more than just myth­i­cal crea­tures. Co-star­ring Ewan McGre­gor, Eleanor Tom­lin­son and Stan­ley Tucci.
