Deploy the GIF of Denzel Washington looking relieved: When Christopher Lloyd’s identify trended on Twitter on Friday, it was not as a result of something unhealthy had occurred to the 82-year-old star of Taxi, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, and Star Trek III: The Search For Spock. Fairly the other. The beloved actor seemed to be again as his most well-known character, Doc Brown from the Again To The Future franchise.
However no, within the new promo, he’s not taking part in Doc Brown. He’s drunken, profane, dimension-hopping scientist Rick Sanchez. And with him, as he steps by way of a cartoonish portal, isn’t Michael J. Fox however Jaeden Martell (finest recognized from the current It adaptation) as Rick’s grandson Morty. Why that is all a intelligent (and very efficient) advertising and marketing stunt for Rick and Morty. Behold!
These versed in Rick and Morty lore know that the wildly profitable animated comedy originated from a Again To The Future parody, so seeing Lloyd belch like Grandpa Rick is actually a very long time comin’. Whether or not Lloyd and Martell will seem within the new episode of the fifth season (debuting Sunday) and what “we’re house” means (past a Star Wars reference) stays to be seen.
These actually versed in Rick and Morty lore know that “C-132” within the tweet refers to which universe of fractured actuality this second is ready in. The principle universe from the present is C-137. Nonetheless, the Rick and Morty characters within the tie-in comics are from C-132. Or at the very least they have been initially earlier than completely different writers got here on board. (Naturally, there are some glorious arguments about this on a number of the extra hair-splitting message boards.) Both means, C-132 was definitively destroyed in difficulty #14, which matches to show what any nerd value his blemflarcks already is aware of: Tie-in comics are soft canon.
