Remember how our parents compare our life with there? They’ll be like when I was your age I used to do this & that. Yeah, We all have been gone through this condition. Have anyone of your parents told you about ET? And that’s how you end up here.
Irrespective of your reason to come here, we’re going to tell you about an old famous movie ET which was released back in 1982, seems so old right? 🤔
Now, there are rumors going around that ET is coming which it’s a sequel. After so many years of being released, this movie decided to launch its second part? But I do say that this is a rumor. In this article, we’ll check how much this news is reliable and it is true whether ET is coming with the second part.
ET the Extra-Terrestrial
The Movie, ET, which is a shorter version of E.T. the extraterrestrial, was released in 1982. The director, as well as the Producer of the movie, is Steven Spielberg, who is a well-known person and Academy, award-winning director. On the other hand, Melissa Mathison wrote the weirdly beautiful story of this movie. Now, what made this story so remembering? Why after so many years, people still talk about ET?
The answer lies in the movie itself. The movie is known to have a science fiction movie, which not to forget is so rare during that time. The story follows a young boy Elliot and his best friend ET, who is an Alien. I know what you are thinking, this story somehow matches the story of No more heroes. Now, there is a talk about the second part of ET. If you wanna know about it, the next section is for you.
ET – Where is the second part?
ET the extraterrestrial was a great movie of its time. After the release of the movie, the film became one of the most grossing films of its time. Not only this but ET has also left many movies behind in terms of profit.
Great Movies like Star Wars and Titanic but we all know how Titanic is still loved and earning a great amount of money. Now after the release of the ET Spielberg announced that they were also planning for a sequel but it was a thing of 1982 and we still haven’t get it. Why?
Furthermore, Thomas said in an interview that “The audience is going to get everything they want out of a sequel without the messy bits that could destroy the beauty of the original and the special place it has in people’s minds and hearts,”
He also added, “Looking at the storyboards, I could see exactly why Steven was really behind it, because the integrity of the story isn’t lost in this retelling.”
But still giving hopes to the children, the film-makers decided to not make a sequel of ET. If you are in puzzled after listening to this shocking news and desperately wanna know the reason then check the next article.
ET 2 – Why there is no sequel for people?
After releasing a great movie, Spielberg decided to cut the sequel. And on the same page, they have a well-written story ready to serve the audience. Now, what exactly had happened? And why they haven’t released a sequel after producing a well-known movie?
To this, Spielberg answered that they can easily make a sequel but that will only make ET’s classic nature look bad. He believes that some movies are better to leave in one part.
We all know how there are many movies like Shrek 5, Daredevil, Frozen, and many others, which are coming with sequels and disturbing the original concept of the movie. Spielberg is right and some movies are left with one part.
Furthermore, Spielberg added that if there will be a sequel it will “rob the original of its virginity” which we can’t agree more. The original story of ET where there is friendship, trust, and love would definitely be ruined after the sequel.
Also, I would like to add that the film-makers have already given the sequel a title i.e. E.T. Nocturnal Fears which simply indicates that they have a ready story and the sequel just need a production.
ET 2 – A small present
Admit it or not, but we all cried at the ending of the movie. The movie left all of my emotions to go messed up. Though it was made in that way to make your eyes wet and heartache we still want a happy ending. As far now, we already know that we’re getting no sequel besides leaving the fact that everything is ready from the story to the name.
Spielberg has an amazing present for the fans of ET. No, not a sequel but something similar to it. After 37 years they have come up with a short film, almost as short as 4 min in which tells the later story of the ET. The clip/story is named as A Holiday Reunion.

This Alien creature was mistakenly left on the Earth while his other friends were returned to his home planet.

- You could be happy here, I could take care of you. I wouldn’t let anybody hurt you. We could grow up together, E.T.
- Damn it, why don’t you grow up and think about how other people feel for a change?
- If you ever see it again, whatever it is, don’t touch it. Just call me and we’ll have somebody come down and take it away.
- Look at what they’ve done to you. I’m so sorry. You must be dead, ‘cause I don’t know how to feel. I can’t feel anything anymore. You’ve gone someplace else now. I’ll believe in you all my life, every day. E.T., I love you.

Review of the show
With an Audience rating summary of 4.5, this movie is a classic hit and still watched by many people. From a small kid to an old age man, everyone is fond of ET and why wouldn’t they be?
We have mentioned some of the feedback of the people, take a look at them.
“I grew up on this movie I found it endearing. Heartfelt and bittersweet it made me laugh. Sad and mad Elliott’s and ET’s band won the hearts of many.
Even now till this day, I cry when ET leaves. What made me mad is when the scientists invaded their home and to examine the alien. What made it heartfelt was the connection and empathy between Elliott and ET. This movie is a timeless classic. For all ages! Drew Barrymore and Henry Thomas were adorable. I even liked the dog the only one I did not like besides the scientists ”
“E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL, in my opinion, is a very touching movie about a special friendship for all ages that will warm your heart and make you cry. I really loved the magic that E.T. performed. The background score was good, the costumes were perfectly designed, everyone was cast perfectly, and the direction was flawless. A very heart touching movie about a special friendship for all ages that will warm your heart and make you cry.”
“Without a doubt a cinematic masterpiece and a wholesome story that everyone on this planet should watch at least once in their lives. This was the closest I ever came to tearing up while watching a movie. With a powerful music score by the legendary John Williams and flawless acting and visuals, this film is without a doubt a 10/10 from me!”
ET is a Classic American movie that was aired in 1982. After so many years, the movie still has a heart for this old Scientific movie. The Audience after watching the 4 min clip asking for a second part which we all knew isn’t possible at all.
After the Director of the movie, Spielberg officially announced that they’re not going to make any other part of ET and will leave the movie as it is. But the story and also the title for the second movie was already decided who knows they might change their mind or might not.
