PG-13 | | Adventure, Fantasy
The ancient war between humans and a race of giants is reignited when Jack, a young farmhand fighting for a kingdom and the love of a princess, opens a gateway between the two worlds.
Stanley Tucci, the only non-British cast member, adopted a British accent to fit in. He said he had long wanted to perform with a British accent, and this film gave him the chance to do so.
Why is it that people always scream before they die? Do they think it's gonna help them?
When the giant king finds the bag of beans dropped by Roderick, it has five beans; however, after the giant blows them into the water, only four stalks grow. Counting the initial bean that starts this story and the bean that Jack retains, there should be seven beans in all; eight if you count the one from the story book's tale.
The Bad Hat Harry logo contains silhouettes of giants, who are first seen from a human point-of-view (their feet are seen stomping around) before they seen in their entirety.
German version was cut for violence (Fallon getting hit by arrows in the face and burning) to secure a "Not under 12" rating.
