No, Marty McFly did not travel to the year 2014. Nor did he go to 2013, or 2012, or any other year in which you’ve seen the false Back to the Future meme flying around. October 21, 2015 is the actual date on which Marty, Doc, and a recast Jennifer went to the future in order to prevent a catastrophic series of events, during which time they accidentally cause a new catastrophic series of events themselves. While the brilliance of Back to the Future was a near impossible act to follow, with Back to the Future Part II, director Robert Zemeckis embraced the idea of time travel wholeheartedly, taking audiences to three very different time periods/timelines throughout the course of the film. It’s a severely underrated movie, but its most striking element is the film’s vision of the year 2015, for which Zemeckis and Co. took the atypical route of striving for fun over accuracy.
