E.T. And Star Wars Exist In The Same Universe

[Update: Given that The Phantom Menace came out a long time ago, some people already knew this. If you are one of those people, please definitely leave a comment to indicate that. It would mean the world to me.] The Children Of The Green Planet who make a brief appearance in a Galactic Senate scene in The Phantom Menace are the same species as E.T. Apparently, they were inserted into the movie by George Lucas to return the favor after Steven Spielberg included a Yoda reference in E.T. I DID NOT KNOW THIS BEFORE AND FIND IT SURPRISING.
