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 spring 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.
Should you wish to remind yourself of the 1985 film, then make your way to Covent Garden Piazza on Saturday 12 September, where Back to the Future will be shown as part of the Cinema in the Piazza programme.
