To celebrate the release of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial on Blu-ray for the very first time today, we've got a clip from the extensive extras to share with you.
Below you can see director Steven Spielberg and his regular composer John Williams as they were creating the iconic theme that brokes hearts around the world in 1982.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the classic film, the Blu-ray and Steelbook features all-new 7.1 surround sound and - most importantly - the original 1982 cut (not the tampered, extended, CGI'd version from a few years ago). There's also new footage from the making, and a new interview with Spielberg.
