An Official New Back to the Future Short Finally Brings Doc Brown Back to 2015

As if you didn’t already know, next month finally marks the day from Back to the Future Part II when Marty McFly and Doc Brown arrived in 2015. There’s a lot going on to celebrate the occasion (click here for proof) but this may be the best thing yet.


Above you see Doc Brown himself, Christopher Lloyd, in a teaser for a short film called Doc Brown Saves the World! It’s going to be included exclusively on the new Back to the Future Blu-ray box set that also comes out on, you guessed it, October 21, 2015. Pre-order here.

So what in the gigawatt is going to happen in the film? We don’t know and the YouTube description doesn’t offer any clues:

Great Scott, Doc Brown’s back! Here’s a sneak peek from the new short coming exclusively to the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Blu-ray and DVD Trilogies. #‎BTTF2015


Thanks for nothing, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment YouTube page. Still, it’s great to see Lloyd still perfectly capture a role he last performed almost three decades ago.

I think it’s now obvious that Back to the Future II was actually real, and when they “corrected” the past Doc Brown and Marty actually inadvertently created a new alternate timeline that led to substantially slower technological development. Which is why we don’t have hoverboards, holograms, powered laces, and flying cars.
