Spielberg, a director synonymous with groundbreaking storytelling, has once again turned his lens toward the extraterrestrial, a theme that has significantly marked his illustrious career.

Decades after Spielberg’s “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” left indelible marks on the sci-fi genre, the director’s new project promises to reignite the allure of the unknown.

While details of the plot remain shrouded in mystery, speculation is rife. Could this be a revival of Spielberg’s abandoned ’70s project “Night Skies”?

“Night Skies,” a project that never saw the light of day, was poised to be a chilling horror film inspired by the Kelly-Hopkinsville encounter, where a Kentucky family claimed to have been terrorized by otherworldly visitors.

The narrative was set to explore the interactions between alien beings and terrestrial life, delving into themes of communication and confrontation.

The original concept for “Night Skies” was bold, featuring a sequence filmed aboard a space shuttle, a testament to Spielberg’s vision and ambition. However, the project was shelved in favor of the more family-friendly “E.T.,” which captured the hearts of audiences worldwide and became a cinematic classic.

Now, with a release date of May 15th, 2026, Spielberg’s return to the realm of UFOs. Will this new film pay homage to the director’s earlier works, or will it chart a new course in his exploration of the extraterrestrial narrative?
