Randal Kleiser

Disney's sci-fi adventure starring Joey Cramer and the voice of Paul Reubens. In 1978, 12-year-old David Freeman stumbles in the woods and is knocked out. When he comes to, he makes his way home, only to discover it's now 1986 and he has officially been missing for eight years. Eventually, it's revealed that the time anomaly is a result of him having been abducted by aliens; and that the spacecraft, piloted by a sentient computer called Max, was seized by Nasa when it returned the boy to Earth. Now David is faced with two problems: Nasa's intense interest in the contents of his brain, which has been filled with priceless extraterrestrial science; and Max's reluctance to return David to 1978, because he might not survive the journey to the past. Unsure what to do, David decides to buy time by stealing the spaceship... Directed by Randal Kleiser.
