DREAMFINDERS: Director Randal Kleiser talks “Honey I Shrunk the Audience” and other Disney classics!

Randal Kleiser grew up with a poster of Disneyland above his bed. He knew every square inch and when he finally got to go, he knew exactly where everything was like he’d been there a thousands times. That passion for Disney eventually helped foster a love of filmmaking and, years later, Randal would have his own attraction at Disneyland that kids would be seeking out – Honey I Shrunk the Audience.

The director of such hits as Grease, Flight of the Navigator, and Honey I Blew Up the Kid, Randal has had an amazing career that spans both decades and technology, as he continues to push the boundaries of what filmmaking can be.

Randal chats with host Nathan Hartman about his college years with his roommate George Lucas, working with wolf dogs out in the wild on White Fang, and just how they pulled off those special effects in Honey, I Shrunk the Audience.
