This year, Sky is reuniting the beloved character of E.T. with Elliott’s 2019 family. The iconic characters from Universal Pictures’ classic movie E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial tell the story of their unbreakable connection using technology from Sky.

Sky debuted the two-minute Christmas short story online today (November 28th) and it will air in ad breaks on Sky channels from 9pm.

Stephen van Rooyen, CEO UK & Ireland, Sky said: “It’s an honour to bring E.T. back to Earth in this new festive short story, helping us to celebrate the magic of family time at Christmas and Sky’s part in bringing our customers together at this special time of year. “
