It took 37 years and a lot of miles, but E.T., the extra-terrestrial creature that helped launch Steven Spielberg’s rise to stardom, has finally reunited with Elliott – albeit in a heartwarming holiday commercial for telecom company Xfinity.

In the four-plus-minute ad, E.T. comes to visit a grown-up Elliott – played by original child actor Henry Thomas – to learn about snow and tablets.
