Have you ever wondered what happened to the Giant when Jack chopped the beanstalk down? Shame on you. Well, it turns out the poor guy bumped his head pretty badly, and is suffering from a severe case of memory loss, and he has no idea how to get back home. Fortunately, there's a quick-witted little boy around who might just be able to help... Here's how to watch Jack and the Beanstalk After Ever After online and stream David Walliams' continuation of the centuries-old fairy tale wherever you are right now.
Jack and the Beanstalk After Ever After airs at 8pm GMT on Sky One this Wednesday (December 23). It'll become available on Sky catch-up services thereafter, making it available throughout the holidays - and you can watch it on your preferred streaming service from anywhere in the world with the help of a VPN (opens in new tab).
Just like 2019's After Ever After adaptation of Cinderella, this made-for-TV film expands on the children's story we all know and love, but places Jack's old foe, the Giant (played by Walliams), at the heart of the story. And forget all about your childhood prejudices, it turns out that lumbering old beast isn't so bad after all.
Jack and the Beanstalk After Ever After sees our titular hero (played by newcomer Eddie Karanja) forge a starkly different relationship with his one-time nemesis, who in turn is completely oblivious to the fact that his new companion was in fact the cause of all of his troubles.
But, of course, every fairy tale needs an antagonist or two, and The Woman With No Name (Sheridan Smith), a pipe-smoking, eye patch-wearing giant-killer, and Dodgy Dave the bean seller (Black Harrison) duly oblige, the pantomime villains providing ample opportunities for some good old-fashioned jeering at your television screen.
If you're in the mood for some light family entertainment, read on as we explain how to watch Jack and the Beanstalk After Ever After online so you can stream the film from anywhere right now.
