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.
A Reunion 3 Million Light Years In The Making
Paying Homage to a Timeless Classic
Released in 1982 by Universal Pictures, Steven Spielberg’s E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was the biggest blockbuster of its time and remains the top-earning film of the 1980s. The movie won Academy Awards for its iconic music (Best Original Score) and groundbreaking technology (Best Visual Effects).
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.
