Many a child has wondered why the giant in Jack And The Beanstalk says something as random as Fee Fye Foe Fumm, but now Bryan Singer has the answer, as apparently those are the name of the enormous creatures in his revisionist take on the fairytale, Jack The Giant Slayer.
Now Warner Bros has released character posters for the giant, who are indeed called Fee, Fye, Foe, Fumm and Fallon. We’re not sure how Fallon got involved, or why he got missed out of the rhyme, but I’m sure we’ll find out when the movie is released on March 22nd.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Jack the Giant Slayer tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants. Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack (Nicholas Hoult) into the battle of his life to stop them. Fighting for a kingdom, its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend–and gets the chance to become a legend himself.’ Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy and Ewan McGregor star.
