In this panel, we'll discuss an underrated Disney sci-fi cult classic: Flight of the Navigator. We'll talk about how Disney, at the time, wasn't really a hit studio like it is today, and this movie was a hit – but not a massive hit like those of Disney's past. Nevertheless, it became a cult classic through showings on television as well as video sales and rentals. We will examine why this film is a classic as well as some of the film's technology and social aspects. We'll also look at the making of this film and how it has affected Walt Disney Pictures in the present day.
