Did you know that there was once a possibility of a sequel to E.T.: The Extraterrestrial? In 1982, Steven Spielberg and screenwriter Melissa Mathison (who wrote E.T.) came up with a 9-page treatment for a film called E.T. II: Nocturnal Fears. In it, Eliot would be kidnapped by evil aliens, and E.T. has to return to rescue them.
It is now time for Elliott to be questioned. The aliens show no mercy when he replies with the truth. The questioning process intensifies when they learn from his memory that he has dealt directly with Zrek. The pain is tremendous for Elliott and he breaks down and begins screaming for E.T.'s help. Elliott black out but the echos of his last cry can be heard from a distance. At this point we follow, upward, the echoing cry for E.T. into the cosmos where the painful cry seems to die.
