To celebrate the release of Life After The Navigator, the new documentary from acclaimed filmmaker Lisa Downs, we sat down with the star and director of Disney’s classic sci-fi adventure, Flight of the Navigator.
First released in 1986, the film was directed by Randal Kleiser (Grease) and starred Joey Cramer as David Scott Freeman, a young man who awakens after falling into a ravine to discover that eight years have passed. In their investigations, NASA and the government find an alien spaceship crashed landed and that, somehow, is intertwined with David and his disappearance.
While the film wasn’t a huge box office success on its initial release, it has endured to become one the most beloved films of its kind of the 1980s. We spoke to Kleiser and Cramer about the film, its legacy and continued impact through DVD, Blu-ray, and now Disney+, and their lives after the film.
