A short film reuniting E.T. and Henry Thomas from the 1982 movie, ‘E.T. the Extra Terrestrial,’ premiered during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Nov. 28, and it’s amazing.
Have you ever wanted a sequel to 1982’s E.T. the Extra Terrestrial? Well, if so, you’re in luck, because we pretty much got one on Nov. 28, when a short film, showing an emotional reunion between E.T. and Elliott (Henry Thomas), debuted during the 93rd annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The 4-minute clip, titled “A Holiday Reunion,” shows E.T. returning to Earth for a surprise visit with Elliott, who now has his own family. And although technology has changed our world since they’ve last seen each other 37 years ago, their connection and friendship remains strong and is a touching reminder of how important reconnecting is during the holiday season.
A two-minute version of the story debuted during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC, while the full-length four-minute version can be viewed via the YouTube video above.
