After visiting 2015, Marty McFly must repeat his visit to 1955 to prevent disastrous changes to 1985...without interfering with his first trip.
Claudia Wells who played Jennifer Parker in the first movie was unable to return for the sequel because her mother had been diagnosed with cancer and had to put her acting career on hold for family reasons.
How 'bout a ride, mister?
Marty McFly: Jennifer! Oh, man, are you a sight for sore eyes; let me look at you.
Young Jennifer: Marty, you're acting like you haven't seen me in a week.
Marty McFly: I haven't.
It has been mentioned that when Biff delivers the almanac to his younger self, he should not have been able to return to 2015 without arriving at a variant timeline. But this plot hole goes back even further than that, to the beginning of the film. In the version of 1985 where Doc picks up Marty and Jennifer, once they get in the car and disappear, they no longer exist in the timeline. When they arrive in 2015, it would be a version of 2015 where they got into the DeLorean in 1985 and were not seen again until arriving in the future.
The DVD version (Regions 1 and 2) has "To Be Concluded" followed by the teaser for Part III just before the start of the credits.
During the preview for "Back to the Future Part III", the theatrical version says "Back To The Future Part III - Coming Summer 1990". Some video versions simply say "Back To The Future Part III". The 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray boasts the theatrical preview.
