Henry Thomas has maintained his connection to E.T. over the years, going so far as to reunite with his alien friend for a heartwarming Xfinity commercial back in 2019.
The actor made the press rounds recently on behalf of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial turning 40 years old (oh my god, I’m so old), and during our conversation, I brought up the story of the proposed E.T. sequel, titled Nocturnal Fears. This was an idea pitched by both Steven Spilberg and original E.T. screenwriter Melissa Mathison. I wanted to know how far along the project got, and if Thomas could remember being approached about it in the years following E.T. He told CinemaBlend.
