Jack the Giant Slayer

While at the market to sell a horse Jack comes across a monk who claims to have magic beans which he uses to buy the horse. Back home Jacks uncle is angry that he didn’t get money for the horse and the beans are thrown away, but when a magic bean gets wet it grows into a beanstalk. At the same time Princess Isabelle is running away from her kingdom and ends up at Jack’s house just as an enormous beanstalk grows through the centre and lifts the house into the sky. The following day King Brahmwell sends Jack and his men up the beanstalk to retrieve his daughter, but t is well known that Giants live in the sky and it is a danger to have a ladder between their two worlds. While in the sky treachery occurs between the Kings men and the Giants are ready to come down to earth for war.
