If there’s one thing in this world more common than online fan petitions, its sequels, reboots, and remakes of the beloved film and TV properties. This article is quite unusually, about both of them simultaneously. Get ready to read the most mind-boggling article where we crank this thing because some fans are frantic for a fourth Back to the Future movie.
The fan behind the movement
Unbelievable, but yes, there is a petition online to make Back to the Future 4. Director Robert Zemeckis doesn’t think a fourth film is necessary. And honestly, most people agree with him. But Christopher Lloyd is all set for a return to the franchise. Fans need to hear no more. That’s good enough for Mason Carr, the fan who started the Change.org petition.
“Make Back to the Future 4 Happen”
The petition is titled “Make Back to the Future 4 Happen”, and it was launched very recently. In just under a week, the petition has already amassed a total of 13 signatures. The goal of this movement is to get 100 signatures so that Universal will take notice.
Back to the Future is one of the most loved films of all time. Both sequels of the movie are hugely celebrated still. But fans will be fans, they want more. They feel it’s time for the band to get back together for another trip down memory lane.
Carr’s enthusiasm and statement
“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,” Carr informs potential signers in the opening statement. “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?”
Is it really necessary to have another Back to the Future film? Perhaps not. But at least Carr is asking for a legacy version of the story that currently exists. We all love Zemeckis and Lloyd and Michael J. Fox and everyone else involved with the original trilogy. So seeing them all back together again wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.
