The beloved movie alien E.T. has come back to Earth, this time reuniting with his friend Elliott, who is now an adult with kids of his own.

Elliott’s family shows E.T. how to surf the web via Comcast Xfinity and use a remote to play holiday movies on a big-screen television. In return, Elliott teaches the kids some tricks of his own, most notably how to fly, literally, on their bicycles.

Lance Acord of Park Pictures directed and shot the live action for Goodby Silverstein & Partners, with visual effects from the a52 studio.
