Go Back to the Future with Doc Brown and Marty McFly in this visually stunning look at the creation of one of the most beloved trilogies of all time.


Few films have made an impact on popular culture like the Back to the Future trilogy. This deluxe, officially licensed book goes behind the scenes to tell the complete story of the making of these hugely popular movies and how the adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown became an international phenomenon.

The book also features exclusive, in-depth interviews with key cast and crew members—including Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Robert Zemeckis, Bob Gale, Frank Marshall, Kathleen Kennedy, and more—and tells the complete story of the production of the movies, from the initial concept to the staging of iconic scenes, such as the Enchantment Under The Sea dance and the hoverboard sequence, and the film’s groundbreaking special effects. The book will also delve into the wider Back to the Future universe, exploring the animated TV show, Back to the Future: The Ride, Back to the Future merchandise, and much, much more.

Written by Michael Klastorin—the production publicist on the second and third movies—and Back to the Future expert Randal Atamaniuk, this book will mine the Back to the Future archives to deliver a range of surprises, including a wealth of special removable items, such as Marty McFly’s secret letter to Doc Brown, Doc’s sketch of the flux capacitor, and a lenticular photo of the disappearing McFly family.

The book also features a foreword by Michael J.Fox, a preface by Christopher Lloyd, an introduction by Bob Gale, and an afterword by Robert Zemeckis.
