Steven Spielberg originally intended on a sequel, writing a proposed script during the summer of 1982 when ET was in its initial release. The proposed film would have taken place on ET's home world, and imagery from purported pre-production was published in some tabloids. Ultimately Spielberg scrapped the plan, believing that any sequel could only rob the original film's virginity. See more »

In the original VHS copy of the movie (the classic black and green plastic) as well as television broadcasts, the now infamous terrorist line was simply supplanted with "You can't get dressed up like THAT" and not the terrorist line OR the hippie line of the 20th anniversary edition. See more »
Today when I was at my house alone, looking through my DVDs, trying to figure out which movie I should see for entertainment. I saw E.T and I hadn't seen it for nearly 3-4 years ago. I seen the film ever since I was 4 years old, so I wondering if I would still enjoy it when I'm an adult. As I was watching the film, I had this rush of nostalgia running through me, I was remembering the times when I was a kid with my family. The film didn't at all feel to childish to me, I was actually having a lot of fun, like I used to when I was a kid. This film has not aged at all since 30 years ago. This film is a truly timeless film, and will always be remembered. This is one of the best Steven Spielberg films. (And that is no easy task) A Timeless Classic 10/10
