Well I finally got E.T. 20th Anniversary Edition and I cant recommend it enough. John Williams, who composed the score, conducted his orchestra live during a special 20th Anniversary screening! All the actors and actresses attended, as did director Steven Spielberg and producer Kathleen Kennedy. You can chose whether to listen to the original soundtrack on the DVD or the special edition live version. The live version is outstanding, as the microphone also picks up the audience laughing during the comical parts of the movie. Anyone who enjoyed E.T the first time round will absolutely adore this new version. Spielberg also touched up E.T. and included many more special effects he said hed wished hed done the first time round. E.Ts spaceship looks outstanding. On the DVD is interviews with the cast. Henry Thomas, who played Elliot and Drew Barrymore as his younger sister Gertie. Also interviews with the other cast members, and what E.T. meant to the world when it first screened back in 1982.

Did anyone notice the ET references in Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace?

Well, it comes from the fact that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg are great friends...they admire each other immensely.

They also delight in making little pastiches of each other's work...for example, in Bladerunner (Spielberg) there is a building shaped like the Millenium Falcon.......

In SWE1 there are two scenes, one where a troop of little aliens march past camera (they are all ETs!) and the second is in the Senate Chamber, while Amidala is whinging about her planet being invaded and she calls for a vote of no confidence...as the camera pans up, a trio of wookies start kicking off and above them is....ET!
