A Reunion 3 Million Light Years In The Making

The holidays are a special time for family and friends to reconnect. This year, we’re sharing a holiday short story of connection by reuniting two beloved characters – E.T. and Elliott. Although the world has changed since they’ve last seen each other, their enduring friendship reminds all of us how important reconnecting is during the holiday season.

Connecting You to the Moments that Matter

We’re honored to work across our Comcast NBCUniversal family of companies to reunite these beloved characters this season. In celebration of the holidays, our Xfinity team produced this holiday short story that debuted during the Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC and will continue to run in the U.S. and across Europe through Sky this winter.

Relive the Magic

We began celebrating this timeless classic on Thanksgiving Day when it debuted during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC. To give more families the opportunity to experience the magic of E.T. this holiday season, Comcast NBCUniversal will be featuring the 1982 film on its SYFY network and across the Xfinity TV platform. Xfinity X1 customers can simply say “E.T. Phone Home” into their Voice Remote to find the movie and unlock a destination of E.T. content.
