If you ever wanted a sequel to E.T. that captures the same spirit, this short E.T. & Elliott is it.

Here’s the official release: This year, Comcast NBCUniversal is continuing a timeless story of friendship by reuniting two beloved characters – E.T. and Elliott. This holiday short story brings together the creative and innovative companies that are a part of Comcast. In this story, iconic characters from Universal Pictures’ E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial tell the story of a timeless connection using technology from Xfinity and Sky.

E.T. is back on earth for a surprise visit with Elliott, who now has his own family. 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.

This story was made in connection with Universal Pictures, part of the Comcast family of companies. We are honored to be able to bring back these characters this holiday season. We hope seeing the reunion story of E.T.and Elliott inspires families everywhere to watch the movie together – whether it’s their first time or 25th time seeing it.

Grab the tissues and watch!
