Skylight

Skylight is a city of giants build high above the Earth in the clouds. It is seen in the story "The Magic Bean trilogy" in Disenchantment: Untold Tales Vol. 1.

The city can only be reached with the help of gigantic beanstalks that grow from magic beans. The giants usually keep these beans, which they grow on farms, to themselves and only use them for sporadic visits to the surface world to gather supplies, but sometimes some beans fall into the wrong hands. Such an example is Magic Jack.

Skylight was founded by Bardolf the Brave, who was the first giant to ever find magic beans. Upon reaching the clouds, he decided to build a utopia here for all giants, who were feared by regular humans and frequently forced to leave their homes. The town knows no violence and no crime, as everybody is provided for and nobody is elevated above another. Visitors with good intentions receive a warm welcome.

Elfo, Bean and Luci visit the city after getting some magic beans from Jack. Once in Skylight they are welcomed by the giant Gunter, who shows them around and eventually takes them for a drink in The Buried Giant. While Elfo and Bean enjoy their stay, Luci feels uncomfortable since the place is too close to heaven for his liking. While drinking beers, Luci tells the others how a utopia like this can never last, as it only takes is one bad person to cause chaos to make everything fall apart. To underscore his story he creates a flame in his hand, which sets fire to the tavern, causing panic. Bean and Elfo try to help put out the fire by fetching the elephants from Gunter's barn, but in the process they knock down an oil lamp and set the barn on fire. In the city, the fire spreads to the other buildings, and the heat causes the clouds to evaporate, meaning they can no longer support the weight of the people. Bean, Elfo and Luci escape the clouds with another beanstalk. It is left unclear if Skylight survived the chaos.
