As many might know, it's not uncommon to see references between George Lucas and Steven Spielberg works in each other's films, whether it be Star Wars' R2-D2 & C-3PO hieroglyphs in Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark or E.T.'s species turning up for a cameo in the Senate in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.
With that in mind I was recently rewatching the first season of The Mandalorian. At the beginning of episode 1.03, the Sin, Din Djarin returns to Nevarro with his bounty, the Child. There is one scene where they are walking through the streets and is mostly filmed from the Child's perspective, as he gazes somewhat worried at all of it's unsavory inhabitants.
(E.T., 2:13 Mark)
The way the scene was shot (and given it features a character of Yoda's species) reminded me greatly of a scene in E.T.. On Halloween, Elliot & Micheal disguise E.T. as a ghost, and when they wonder down the streets of their neighborhood for Trick or Treating, E.T. peers out of the holes of his costume and sees a human child dressed as Yoda and he goes running to him saying, "Home! Home! Home!".
Although it's somewhat diametrically opposing, I was wondering if the scene I described in 1.03 of The Mandalorian, is an allusion to this scene in E.T.?
