It’s Back to Doc Brown, in Brand New Back To The Future Short
Seeing as Back to the Future celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2015, its only fitting that the one and only Doc Brown has returned in a brand new short film, Doc Brown Saves the World, to mark the milestone.
The full live-action short will feature Christopher Lloyd reprising his infamous role and will be available on the upcoming Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy Blu-ray & DVD, due out on October 21 – the exact date Marty McFly and Jennifer travel forward to in Part II.
And funnily enough, this is actually the second time Lloyd has played Doc Brown this year, with the eccentric scientist appearing in a teaser for the multi-franchise crossover video game Lego Dimensions.
His return to the Back to the Future franchise release will be accompanied by Back to the Future: The Complete Animated Series on DVD for the first time ever, and Back to the Future: The Complete Adventures, a combo of the trilogy and animated series in Flux Capacitor packaging.
And if that wasn’t enough, a Back to the Future documentary Back in Time, directed by Jason Aron, will also premiere on October 21 before hitting Blu-ray and DVD the following day. Aron’s film will take a closer look at the stories behind the classic movie, and features interviews with the likes of Lloyd, Michael J Fox, Lea Thompson, and creators Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale.
So Back to the Future fans, if you haven’t already (and we know you’ll definitely have) mark October 21, 2015 in your diaries – ‘cos there’s going to be a lot that you aren’t going to want to miss.
