Trivia:
Stanley Tucci, the only non-British cast member, adopts 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.

Twice in the film we see a golden harp. Once in a flashback when a giant is stealing it and again when Jack is in the room with all the treasure. In the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale, a harp that plays by itself is one of the items Jack steals from the giant.

Considering their good work-relationship in X-Men:First Class (2011), Nicholas Hoult was Bryan Singer's first choice.

The film's VFX has to be toned down to keep the film age-appropriate for children..

Creating the beanstalk involved two main requirements: set extension for shots of the actors interacting with the beanstalk (shot against a bluescreen), and complete CG renderings for shots of the beanstalk growing and extending from Earth into the world of the giants.

Jamie Campbell Bower was considered for the role of Jack, but he was unable to audition due to a broken ankle injury suffered while filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010).

Sigourney Weaver's character in Ripley in Aliens (1986) is the base of Eleanor Tomlinson's character.

Byron coll and Aaron Jackson had their roles cut from the finished film but were still credited in the end titles.

Adelaide Kane, Lily Collins, and Juno Temple auditioned for the role of Isabelle. The role of Isabelle was auditioned by Adelaide Kane, Lily Collins and Juno Temple.

The role of Jack brought the consideration of Alex Pettyfer, Aaron Johnson and Aneurin Barnard.
