E.T. Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures (2022) are coming soon. There’s no release date yet, but stay tuned because I’ll update images and more information once released.

On June 11, 1982, Steven Spielberg’s E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was released in theaters. The film tells the story of a young boy named Elliott who befriends an alien stranded on Earth.

Throughout the film, Elliott and his family help E.T. return home while also evading the government agents on their trail. E.T. was an instant classic, and it went on to become one of the highest-grossing films of all time.

Forty years later, the film remains just as popular as ever. In celebration of its anniversary, here are some fun facts about E.T.:

  1. The original script for E.T. was much darker in tone. In the original version, E.T. died at the film’s end and was resurrected by Elliott’s prayers. However, Spielberg decided to change the ending after test audiences reacted negatively to E.T.’s death.
  2. Legendary actress Debra Winger provided E.T.’s voice. Winger’s performance as Elliott’s mother, Mary, was also nominated for an Oscar.
  3. E.T. was not the only alien character in the film. The other aliens were played by actors in costume and were shot in silhouette to keep their appearance a secret.
  4. The now-famous scene where E.T. is riding on Elliott’s bike was initially supposed to be much longer. But unfortunately, the scene was cut down due to budget constraints.
  5. The prop department did not make the E.T. doll that can be seen in the film. Instead, it was a real toy that Spielberg’s daughter owned and brought to the set with her.
  6. E.T.’s home planet, Brodo Asogi, is named after two of Spielberg’s favorite foods: broccoli and asparagus.
