Disney Rebooting Flight of the Navigator with Bryce Dallas Howard Directing

Disney is rebooting Flight of the Navigator for Disney+ and Bryce Dallas Howard is set to direct it. The project is being produced by John Schwartz, Howard’s partner at production company Nine Muses, and also Justin Springer. The news came from The Hollywood Reporter this morning.

The original 1986 sci-fi film told the story of a 12-year-old boy who is abducted by a UFO. Eight years later he reappears and doesn’t remember a thing. NASA officials find the connection between the boy and the recovered UFO and attempt to get him. This young boy finds himself on an adventure as he tries to figure out what happens and also attempt to return to his family.

For this version, the lead will be changed to a female. It is unknown if she will be the same age as in the original. It also isn’t known during what time period the film will take place.

This will be Howard’s first feature film that she will be directing. Recently she has directed episodes of The Mandalorian and also an episode The Book of Boba Fett. She also has directed several shorts and a documentary. She also has had a successful career in front of the camera and is one of the leads in the Jurassic World trilogy.
