Tomorrow, a brand spanking new set of Blu-rays and DVDs arrive on shelves celebrating the 25th anniversary of 'Back to the Future'. All three films look more beautiful than they ever have before, and each disc is packed with more behind-the-scenes content than you'll know what to do with. We've already shared with you the inclusion of never-before-seen footage of Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly before he was replaced by Michael J. Fox five weeks into production, but that's just a snippet of the 1.21 Gigawatts worth of information that you'll find in this new collection.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of this iconic film, Cinematical sat down with 'Back to the Future' co-creator Bob Gale, and spoke to him about the newly released Eric Stoltz footage, as well as all sorts of other things like his planned 'Back to the Future 4', whether or not they'd ever convert the series to 3D, and why he thinks some fans aren't so crazy about part three.


You've always been against showing the footage of Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly before he was replaced by Michael J. Fox. Why did you choose to finally put some of it out there?

Bob Gale: When we were putting together the documentaries for this last one, they thought the story would be better if we just showed something. Bob [Zemeckis] and I weren't too sure about it, but they showed us what they had done and I thought it was fine, and Bob thought it was fine, and we said okay, let's do it.
