Disney movies and Broadway are just an obvious pairing. The
According to Back to The Future, Part II, we should be dressing like this in 2015:
We should also finally have those hover boards, Jaws 19 will hit theaters this summer, and we will have the technology to hydrate pizzas in the microwave in seconds.
Of course, none of these technological marvels have come to fruition, although we may be close to the hover board. Something that is equally as entertaining with the second entry into the trilogy of Marty McFly are the fun little wins to other films, to the first Back to The Future film, and even to the third entry in the franchise. These easter eggs are hidden in various moments throughout the film, so let’s take a look:
THE VINTAGE SHOP
When Marty arrives in 2015, he takes a tour of the futuristic Hill Valley and stops by a “Vintage shop” of sorts. In this window at the shop, there are so many little easter eggs hidden in the shot. Be on the look out for Marty’s jacket on the top left of the frame, the JVC camera he used in the first film, and over on the right there is a stuffed Roger Rabbit, which was also directed by Robert Zemeckis.
When Marty is attacked by the hologram shark from the Jaws 19 movie marquee, if you look to the right of the shark you will see “Directed by Max Spielberg.” Max is Steven Spielberg’s son’s name, and he was born in 1985, the “home base” of the film’s timeline.
THE GOLDIE WILSON LEGACY
In the original Back to The Future, Goldie Wilson was busy sweeping the floor at Mr. Caruthers’ diner. Marty gave him the motivation to run for mayor, and we see in 1985 that he is running for a re-election. In BTTF 2, one of the first shots of 2015 is a floating billboard showing us that Goldie Wilson, Jr. is the current mayor. The name of Goldie Wilson III also pops up as a hover-conversion guru.
DOC’S TRAIN SHIRT
Doc’s shirt, a Hawaiian shirt with trains all over it, is clearly a reference to his upcoming adventure in the Old West in Back to The Future III.
MAD DOG TANNEN
Another glimpse at BTTF 3 comes in the alternate 1985, when Marty is watching how Biff came to rule Hill Valley. Biff’s biography on the TV screen shows his relative, Mad Dog Tannen, who ruled the Old West. Marty of course has to fend off Mad Dog in the third film.
