And you're sure to remember the splendid time-travelling De Lorean automobile, which transports McFly in his time travels.
Well, all that (minus Michael J Fox, obviously) is now travelling 35 years into the future to become Back to the Future: the Musical, which is coming to the West End in summer 2021.
Back to the Future: the Musical was adapted for the stage by the film's own creators, Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis, and the pre-publicity bills it as a 'thrilling theatrical experience' set to change the course of musical history.
The production team comes laden with awards from previous work. Original music by multi-Grammy winners Alan Silvestri (Avengers: Endgame) and Glen Ballard (Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror), blends with hit songs from the movie, including The Power of Love.
The director is Tony award-winner John Rando, and the leads are played by Ollie Dobson (Matilda: The Musical) as Marty McFly and Roger Bart (The Producers) as Doc Brown.
And in case you were wondering, the other eye-catching lead, the time-travelling De Lorean automobile, will hit the stage at – believe it or not – 88mph, we're promised.
The promoters have now released the first single from this new musical. Here it is:
Altogether, it's something to look forward to and maybe a way to celebrate a return to normality after months of lockdown and Covid-19 restrictions.
