Disney is really going all out with this whole reboot concept! First they started with the cartoon remakes that they turned into live action movies, then they decided to go for our favorite Halloween movie, and now they are going to remake another classic. It never ends!

Disney's latest remake is taking Flight of the Navigator and bringing it into the new millennium. The original came out in 1986 and people liked it a fair amount. It was never popular enough to get a sequel, until now.

It was one of those movies that was technically for kids, but honestly, it was probably a bit more scary than it needed to be.

The plans for the remake were revealed and here's what we know so far.

9 Times 80s Movies Taught Us Important Life Lessons

The 80s were the best decade for movies ever, and we all knew that. But 80s movies did more than just provide entertainment. I could just be speaking for myself, but I learned some of the greatest life lessons from my favorite 80s movies.1. Life is too short to not have fun. Ferris Bueller taught us that sometimes you have to let loose a bit and have fun.
