Great Scott! Back To the Future is almost 35 years old. Fortunately, Universal has big plans to celebrate its anniversary. The time traveling comedy will get a huge campaign over the next few months. Universal is planning new books, toys, and the trilogy’s official release on the 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray format.
“Over the next year, fans around the world will be treated to new, inspired-by merchandise across a variety of categories, theatrical re-releases, anniversary celebrations, digital content and more,” noted a Universal Studios rep via a press release.
IDW Publishing will release new books including Back To the Future: DeLorean Time Machine — Owner’s Workshop Manual and Back To the Future: The Ultimate Visual History.
Several new toys will make the rounds over the next year as well. Funko will release a number of POP! figures, while Ravensburger will unleash a new BTTF board game.
Clothing stores like Hot Topic and Super 7 will also have a Back To the Future “lifestyle collection of apparel and accessories.” Finally, the entire Back to the Future trilogy will get a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray set in early 2020. It includes 4K Ultra HD discs, regular Blu-Ray discs and digital copies. However, it’s unclear if there will be any new extras created for this set.
Additionally, the original Back To the Future will also return to theaters for “events.”
An official logo for the celebration is also below.
