Great Scott! It’s Oct. 21, do you know what this means?!

It’s Back to the Future Day, the annual holiday that celebrates the day that Marty McFly traveled back in time!

This year, Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment are going BIG to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the franchise with the new 4K Ultra HD release of Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy, fan-created content on Tongal, and a fresh assortment of toys, collectibles, and accessories from licensees including PlaymobilMattelHasbroFunkoJada ToysSuper7NECA, and others. The promotion is anchored with a dedicated Amazon storefront with exclusive products spread across retail partners including Walmart, Target, and more.

“Very few franchises in Hollywood history have shown the kind of staying power of Back to the Future,” says Bob Gale, co-writer, co-producer, and co-creator of the trilogy. “To be celebrating 35 years of this iconic film series— through incredible product collections and fan-created content from around the world — is truly a testament to the heart of the film itself. Yes, it’s a sci-fi adventure, but it’s also about family and the fans’ emotional connection to the characters – which is something everyone can relate to, no matter what generation or time-traveling decade you’re from.”


Some highlights of the new toys and collectibles being offered can be viewed below.
