Back to the Future...The Ride
"Experience the complete Universal Studios theme park attraction including lobby monitor and pre-show footage." Presented in its entirety, including the "Lobby Monitor" and a combination of the "Pre-Show" and The Ride itself, an accurate representation of the signature theme park attraction is being released officially for the very first time. Featuring an on-screen dashboard of the 8-passenger DeLorean as it travels through time, The Ride is complete with accurate time circuit displays and the onboard monitor in which Doc and Biff communicate with the Institute of Future Technology's time travel volunteers. We think you'll love this true continuation of the trilogy being made available for the very first time - I sure do. I personally have been waiting for The Ride to be released on home video ever since I first experienced the attraction in January 1992! Since The Ride is included as a bonus feature itself, unfortunately there are no other bonus features for The Ride in this particular release. Hopefully we'll see behind the scenes and making-of featurettes for this attraction whenever Blu-ray arrives.

Looking Back to the Future
"Explore the legacy of Back to the Future in this 9-part retrospective documentary" Longtime followers of this website and attendees of the 2006 DeLorean Car Show in Chicago know that BTTF.com was involved in the production of an independent documentary entitled Looking Back at the Future. Looking Back to the Future is the long-awaited, newly re-edited and renamed version of that documentary, which Universal has decided to include in the 2-Disc Back to the Future Special Edition DVD. It has been completely recut and edited to incorporate content just from only the first film, including both new material and old. We're hopeful that whenever these films are released on Blu-ray down the line, that a second and third chapter to Looking Back to the Future will be added to incorporate all the wonderful interviews conducted about the sequels.

Back to the Future Night
"Go on the set of Back to the Future and Back to the Future Part II in this rare TV special." Another classic being released officially for the very first time is the highly sought-after release of the special preview for Back to the Future Part II which aired November 17, 1989 on NBC prior to a Friday night screening of Back to the Future and was hosted by comedian Leslie Nielsen. It was in this special which Robert Zemeckis (with tongue firmly in cheek) first stated that the hoverboards were real, setting off a frenzy of fans searching in a futile effort for the mystical flying boards and flooding Mattel's headquarters with phone calls & letters.


Michael J. Fox Q&A
This is the very same content as the "Enhanced Conversation with Michael J. Fox" found on Disc 1 (and was included in the 2002 Boxed Set), but here is presented as one continuous sequence and seems to be much more enjoyable.

All three discs have a SRP of $19.98 and arrive in stores starting February 10, 2009. You can also pre-order them from BTTF.com by visiting our Time Travel Terminal:

This is great! Way to go, McFly! New web site, new DVDs... I love it! Disc 2 for BTTF1 is all new material, but it seems to me that the features on the other discs (BTTF1 Disc 1, BTTF2, & BTTF3) are exactly the same as the 2002 DVDs. True?

WOW! Never really expected THE RIDE to ever be released! Knew there were rumors but thought it was just rumors.

Stephen, do you know how long the footage is for the Lobby Monitor and the actual Ride? I was lucky enough to see it a number of times over the years. So I am curious what the actual run time of all the footage is.

Any chance that these editions will be packaged as Steelbook's, perhaps?

The run time for the footage is about 25 minutes, with the ride at about 5 minutes putting the entire thing around a half hour.

""Lobby Monitor" and a combination of the "Pre-Show" and The Ride itself"

1"Lobby Monitor" is this the video that played along the line? My memory is hazy but among other things it showed the history of the Institute and showed new Footage of Doc returning to 2015( using stock effects footage)

2 Then you have the Lobby footage in which Biff steals the TIme Machine.

3The waiting room footage of Doc. The little rooms(with prop replicas) where small groups wait to board the Ride. With safety instructions and more directions from Doc.

4 The Ride film itself. Plus dashboard footage of Biff and Doc.

Yeah I know I am being nitpicky!!!

So its really EVERYTHING???!!! Its too good to be true!!!

So when do we get the Animated Series on DVD???

Ooh, nice site revamp. Haven't been here in ages.

And yes, when's the Bluray edition coming out? I already have two copies of the BTTF trilogy on DVD, and much as I love the films, I don't think I'd need four versions...

lol note that looking back to the future, it's only about the first movie... how that can be good news to anyone?

WHY , , if anyone can tell, WHY is the FULL documentary not included? just to make us buy ANOTHER box in 2 or 3 years time with the re-re-re-e-re-re re-re-re release of the dvd's?
