Steven Spielberg has said that he regrets editing out guns for walkie talkies in ET's 20th anniversary release.

Speaking at a master class at the Time Summit in New York, he said,
"That was a mistake,"

"I never should have done that."

Spielberg went on further to say,
"E.T. is a product of its era. No film should be revised based on the lenses we now are, either voluntarily, or being forced to peer through."

"'E.T. was a film that I was sensitive to the fact that the federal agents were approaching kids with firearms exposed and I thought I would change the guns into walkie talkies."

"Years went by and I changed my own views."

"I should have never messed with the archives of my own work, and I don't recommend anyone do that."

"All our movies are a kind of a signpost of where we were when we made them, what the world was like and what the world was receiving when we got those stories out there."

"So I really regret having that out there."
