E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is resurrected for a television commercial, and it's perfect. Xfinity brought E.T. back to life alongside his friend Elliot played by Henry Thomas for the digital company's holiday message to stay in touch. Be ready to shed a tear when you see this four-minute short that reunites Elliot and E.T.
Thirty eight years later, Elliot has a family of his own. The short replicates some of the iconic moments from the 1982 movie directed by Steven Spielberg.
The four-minute commercial is the perfect sequel in that it brings back the iconic movie character in a short amount of time without the disappointment that usually comes with sequels.
Early this year, Google recreated HOME ALONE with Macauley Culkin which may have inspired this reunion.
