In what seems like the era of unoriginal ideas why not make a new Back to the Future film? All the cast is still alive from the originals, and even though the original three seem like a complete enough story there could possibly be room for one more. At the time of this writing they have passed the original goal of 100 signatures and are now on their way to 500.
Fans have started this petition stating:
“It has been almost 30 years since the last Back To The Future movie came out, and almost 35 years since the first movie came out. Like how Ghostbusters is getting a new sequel next year that is gonna be connected to the original films, could we see this happen for Back To The Future? Robert Zemeckis, the director of the Back To The Future franchise said the 4th movie can’t be done. but Christopher Lloyd said that he wants to see a new sequel. Should Universal Pictures from back the Back To The Future franchise for one more movie? i bet alot of die hard fans of the franchise want a 4th film as well. and with the return of the DMC DeLorean company, that might increase the chances of a 4th film happening. If you want a 4th Back To The Future movie, just sign and support this petition and we might see it happen.”Back to the Future Part IV petition
The question is are enough kids today going back and rewatching the originals? And if not how do we remedy that. With a new movie that points to the previous ones and leads our youth back to this 80’s cult classic.
Unless your parents are systematically introducing you to what was popular in pop culture you may be on your own. And what better way to point to a franchise than with current and new material based on the old? If Comcast wants to keep money in their pocket with the sales of Back to the Future merchandise selling for the foreseeable future, this is the best idea to keep the current generation attached. How else will they keep selling these hats?
