E.T. is home.
After 37 years, E.T. comes back to visit his friend, Elliott, for the holidays. Goodby Silverstein & Partners brought two of the most iconic friends in film history back together—E.T. and Elliott—for Comcast NBCUniversal, Comcast/Xfinity and Sky TV.
In this holiday short-story film, The beloved extraterrestrial reunites with Elliott (played by a grown-up actor Henry Thomas) in a sequel to the blockbuster movie. E.T. meets Elliott's family, while learning about new advances like the internet and virtual reality.
Directed by Lance Acord and edited by two-time Oscar winner Kirk Baxter, the film features over 30 Easter eggs in the form of props, wardrobe references and callbacks to iconic moments for E.T. fans to discover each time they watch it. A number of these Easter eggs were custom-created by social influencers who then shared the project with their own fans.
