Uncensored Back to the Future 2 Is Now on Netflix, Creators Want Edited Version Destroyed

Bob Gale says he wants Universal Pictures to destroy the censored version of Back to the Future Part II. The edited sequel was discovered on Netflix recently by eagle-eyed fans, who were not happy about what they saw. Most people assumed that the streaming platform was to blame for the minor, but sloppy edit. However, Gale has revealed that Universal Pictures are the ones to blame, not Netflix. The regular version of the movie is now streaming, unedited.

Apparently the Back to the Future 2 edited version was made for foreign markets. Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis didn’t even know that it existed. It’s also unclear which country had a problem with Biff’s Oh La La magazine cover. Gale says, “I asked that the studio destroy this version.” That’s pretty bold, but it has to be done to ensure that this kind of thing doesn’t happen again down the line, especially when Gale and Zemeckis aren’t around to call the shots anymore.

The scene in question finds Marty McFly thinking that he scored the Sports Almanac, only to learn that it was Biff’s girlie magazine. The edit took away some dialogue from Michael J. Fox and the cover of the magazine. It just seemed like an odd choice and the edit was really bad to where just about anybody who was paying attention would have noticed it even if they didn’t remember the magazine cover. Regardless, it’s all been taken care of now and Back to the Future fans can go back to watching the regular version on Netflix.

Back to the Future 2 is often considered to be one of the best sequels of all time. There is a cult audience that still worships it. It was a massive undertaking to follow the first installment, but there are elements, like the hover board and self-lacing shoes that people still reference to this day. During Josh Gad’s Back to the Future

reunion, Bob Gale claimed the only props he had from the movie were the hover board and the self-lacing shoes, so that should really tell fans something when arguing the sequel’s merits.

Back to the Future means a lot of things to a lot of people, so it’s not surprising that fans were able to notice the Netflix edit. Now, one has to imagine that this could have happened to a lot of other movies over the years on the streaming service, or other services, due to the studios sending out the wrong version of the movie. Not all movies are as beloved as Back to the Future 2, so it would be easy for lesser-known movies to slip through the cracks with botched edit jobs. The interview with Bob Gale was originally conducted by The Hollywood Reporter. Hopefully Universal has learned their lesson with this latest editing debacle.

Watch The Love, Victor Trailer

Victor is just like any other high schooler, trying to figure out who he is and where he fits in, and moving to a new city only makes everything more confusing. Good thing he has a trusted confidant to seek advice from. Hulu released the trailer for the new Love, Simon spinoff series Love, Victor today, and it explores all the familiar ups and downs of teenage life.

Love, Victor follows Victor (Michael Cimino), a new student at Creekwood High School, as he tries to figure out his sexuality and his place in school while dealing with his own family issues at home. The new series takes place in the same universe as Love, Simon, so to cope with it all, Victor writes letters to Simon (Nick Robinson).

Hulu released a first-look at the upcoming teen drama last month with a sneak-peek scene, but today’s trailer reveals more of what we can expect from Love, Victor. “I was excited to start over,” Victor says in a letter to Simon. “I thought I’d finally get the chance to be myself. Or at least figure out who that even is.” As Victor meets his new classmates at school, he’s introduced to Benji (George Sear), an eventual love interest, but he’s still trying to navigate the high school dating scene. “Some guys like guys, some guys like girls, some guys like both,” he says. “I’m not even sure what I like.”

While Victor is figuring out his sexuality, he also has to worry about how his family will react. “You’re very lucky, Simon, for having the world’s most perfect, accepting parents, supportive friends,” he says. “For some of us, it’s not that easy.”

The new Hulu series also stars Ana Ortiz, James Martinez, Isabella Ferreira and Mateo Fernandez.

Love, Victor moved to Hulu in February after it was first scheduled to premiere on Disney+. Reports indicated that it was too mature for the family-focused streaming service with its themes of family problems, alcohol use, marital issues and sexual exploration.

All 10 episodes from Season 1 of Love, Victor come to Hulu June 19 during LGBTQ Pride Month. Watch the full trailer in the video above.
