The E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial intelligent life form creature that isn't human which the general public got to see in 1982.
Night Skies was supposed to be released in 1980 and it died while it was in preproduction. The only part of the script for Night Skies that was kept was the part where the innocent alien from outer space named Buddy who makes friends with an autistic child and helps the family survive an evil horror film aliens from outer space (Possibly with the help of the innocent United States Government). Everything else in the failed died in development film Night Skies was thrown out. Rick Baker was the designer of the evil aliens from outer space special effects pre-production designs which never saw the light of day---Until now. Night Skies was the failed first draft of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial that nobody ever got to see. And it's a game of what if as we ponder what would've happened if Night Skies actually made it to movie theaters, what would've happened to E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial?
