Fall back in time with Legends Podcast! All month long, we’re talking about time travel, paradoxes, and compliance.
In the summer of 1982, director Stephen Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial rocketed to the top of the box office and surpassed Star Wars to become the highest-grossing film of all time. The film was aimed squarely at kids, starring a youngster and his likeable alien friend, with no “bad guys” except for the shadowy government types who doggedly pursue the two. E.T.’s success inspired plenty of knock-offs throughout the ‘80s, including The Last Starfighter, Explorers, *batteries not included, and Mac and Me. Not to be left out, Walt Disney Pictures released Flight of the Navigator in 1986, about a time-displaced child and a talking spaceship voiced by Pee-Wee Herman star Paul Reubens. The film was a modest hit during Disney’s “dark age,” but nowhere near as successful as E.T. Disney has promised to make a reboot since 2009, so Legends Podcast wraps up its time travel month with Beef’s childhood favorite. Do not know “promise…” This is Chronovember!
