- The popular alien from the film E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial is back on screens
- E.T and Elliott reunited briefly for a Christmas commercial
- The reunion comes almost 40 years after the world was first introduced to the creature from another planet
Who doesn't remember the iconic little alien from E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial? Even people who never watched the film know the character.
Although a little creepy to some, E.T has become the most famous alien in modern history.
Now, the little alien is back for a brief reunion with Elliott for a special Christmas commercial.
Etonline reported that the two have come together for a commercial for Xfinity, an American cable television, internet, telephone, and wireless services provider.
The commercial is loaded with nostalgia as it shows Elliott's children discovering his old alien pal.
They spend time together and eat the same chocolates as they did years ago before E.T rides off on his bike, just as in the world-famous scene in the movie.
Briefly.co.za gathered that E.T was one of the biggest films of the 80s - it won 2 Academy Awards and was a huge blockbuster.
