E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Henry Thomas, Dee Wallace-Stone, Robert MacNaughton, Drew Barrymore, Erika Eleniak and Peter Coyote, comes out as a 1 disc no-frills release. The story centers around the friendship between a bot and a stranded alien. While the boy tries to keep E.T. a secret the stakes get higher as government agents start closing in. VFX were provided by ILM, for which they won an Academy Award, under the supervision of Dennis Muren.
This is a one disc release which doesn't inlcude most of the extras included during the initial release (which coincided with the 20th Anniversary edition). It does include a separate music track, the original theatrical trailer, production photos and concept drawings galleries, and featurettes of John Williams score and the cast and crew reunion.
