Flight of the Navigator
As it seems anything in the 1980’s style is hot right now, another remake is in the works–this time for 1986’s Flight of the Navigator! The original film was released by Disney, but the remake will be produced by the Henson Co. The film plot features a boy abducted by aliens in 1978, and returns to Earth in 1986, but has not aged at all. It featured a lot of robots and aliens, and with the Henson Co. producing the remake have no doubt the new version will have great puppets and animatronics! No word yet on when the reboot is set to start filming.
