The navigator takes flight once more…

Disney is readying another launch of sci-fi adventure movie “Flight of the Navigator, reports THR.

The 1986 original told the tale of a 12-year-old boy who is abducted by an alien spacecraft in 1978 and reappears eight years later, still the same age and with no memory of what happened. NASA scientists discover a connection between the boy and a downed spacecraft and try to exploit the boy, who ultimately escapes with the ship and attempts to reunite with his family.

The movie grossed only $17 million when it was released but was later rediscovered on VHS, becoming a cult hit. Brad Copeland – one of the Arressted Development scribes- is writing the remake
