This is darling. Brought tears to my eyes, and of course, the music is wonderful. Nice to see the original Elliot all grown up. Enjoy.

That's sweet!

Spielberg has been adament about not doing a sequel to E.T., so I guess that's about as close as we'll get.

You know - instead of rebooting everything - this type of micro-sequel hits all the right buttons. I'd love to see more of these rather than full length films. big grin

This was surprisingly touching. A lot of emotion packed into those 4 minutes.

Yes, it is sweet, Thor.

Yes, good one. It does hit the right buttons. I swear that when grown up Elliott sees E.T., he makes the same sound as he did in the movie as a boy. I think it was when he saw E.T.'s heart start to pump. It is a joyful advertisement.

Yes, a lot of emotion. I am surprised it is a 4 minute ad instead of 2 minutes. I'll take all 4 minutes.

Of course this isn't the first time E.T. has been used for an advertising campaign. BT also used him for their "stay in touch" commercial in the late 90s...

Thomas, I didn't know the ad you just posted. Thanks for sharing it.

Some things I like about the new one are bringing back the adult Elliott and zeroing in on so many of the movie's details like reviving the flowers. Also, now and then I need to be reminded about how iconic Williams' music is. That music is glorious.

Absolutely, Judy. I admit to one problem. There are a few soundtrack that make me cry a bit like An Affair to Remember and Robin and Marian. E.T. does the same thing to me. Watching E.T. and Elliott say good-bye works the tear ducts. The music is such a memory reminder of that scene.

If I'm allowed one critical point, though:

I have to say that if this were a regular sequel and not an ad, it would hopefully have a bit more originality. The ad is basically just crossing off the exact same plot points of the original film. Familiarity is crucial to ads.

It's an ad who's whole purpose is to hit you with the "feels"-Nostalgia. It's cute. Even at 4mins long my minor bit of criticism is the story felt rushed. But then again its an ad.
