Back to the Future Timelines

This is something I've been wanting to make for a long time now. Back to the Future is one of my favorite films of all time, and I know that the different timelines can be a little confusing for some, especially during the second film. So, I decided to make a simple chart explaining the different timelines. Yes, I know that a lot of people have made these already, but I wanted to make one with the different timelines and descriptions for each one plus a neat design! ;)

Doc explains in the movies that whenever a person time travels to the past and alters key-events, he deletes his timeline and a new timeline is created.

Ripple effect explanation: Whenever a person travels back in time and changes things in the past, things and people in the future may change. Because of this, the people in the future are sent to the new timeline that the person travelling back in time created.

If you're interested, this is available as a Print. :D

If I've made any spelling and/or grammatical errors, please tell me! :)

There should be a Ripple Effect from timeline 5 to timeline 8 because Jennifer and Einstein were in 1985 when it was changed.

Pretty cool. A nice, brief summary of the story, too.

I forgot that Back to the Future 2 was set in 2015… so in a little over three years I can buy my hover board and flying car, I waited so long for them.

Weirdly though I always remember the kids making fun of that shooting game in the Diner because they had to use their hands to play it. Spielberg was the first to predict the Xbox Kinect!!

HI MUSHIR this is a great idea, BACK TO THE FUTURE has been my favorite movie(s) for many years and still is pretty much on top of my list !!!

This is why I would make 2 remarks :
- first in Timeline 4 OLD BIFF does not die : he returns safely to 2015 and leaves a piece of his cane/walking stick in the DeLorean... It is when Marty and Doc get back from 2015 to (alternate) 1985 that they realize the drastic changes that OLD BIFF's return to the past have generated... and it is when they notice the piece of cane/walking Stick in the DeLorean that they understand that OLD BIFF went back to the past (luckily enough 1955) to give the almanach to YOUNG BIFF !!
- second in Timeline 8 : you forget to mention that DOC also travels back from 1885 to 1985... and beyond !! (although not in the DeLorean)

Great work however !!

Really awesome, but the first one about the dog travelling a minute.. it looks more like he travelled inbetween 1985 and 2015 ;S

Um, is this okay to be sold? I mean, it's copyrighted material.
Although, thanks for this!
