Back to the Future comes to 4K in 2020

Today, October 21st is “Back to the Future Day” to fans of the popular film trilogy “Back to the Future” which appears is coming to the 4K UHD Blu-ray format next year. UPDATE: So, this started out as a rumor and I’ve now confirmed it. You’ll read more on that a bit below. Enjoy!

This was (to me) rumor at this point, but it held some strong validity to it. So, today on social media outlets (Facebook and Twitter) for both the film franchise and even on the Amblin Entertainment account they have been not only celebrating this date but they’ve also pointed out the obvious fact the first film is celebrating its 35th anniversary and to expect a 4K UHD Blu-ray release in 2020. Will it be just the first film or the entire trilogy? More on that later.

The original 1985 Robert Zemeckis directed classic that was “Back to the Future” was the first in the trilogy and truly itself remains iconic. I think that’s important to point that out. As even though we are looking to the future here, we have to start somewhere, just as Spielberg did to produce these films back in 1985 which he would continue to do with “Back to the Future Part II” (1989) and “Back to the Future Part III” (1990) – along with Zemeckis. Ready to hear if I think it will be the whole trilogy to be released next year in 4K or just the first film? You’ll need something similar to a road to get you there and that’ll be by continuing on. Or maybe you don’t need roads where you’re going?
