The upcoming LEGO Dimensions game offers an impressive array of different Lego worlds, and now boasts an even more impressive voice cast, including Michael J. Fox reprising his iconic role of Marty McFly from Back to the Future.
As a big Back to the Future fan, this is really cool news. Fox was so memorable in that role, that even with impersonators doing an admirable job as the character in things like the recent Back to the Future video games, they’re still nowhere near as good as the man himself.
LEGO Dimensions is setting its sites on the video game/collectible market that Skylanders and Disney Infinity have made so popular with their wide assortment of worlds and legendary characters, but LEGO Dimensions is pulling out all of the stops, including the reunion of Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd in their respective Back to the Future roles.
Other huge names that fanboys will be excited to hear in the game include Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor, Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald, and Michelle Gomez as Missy/The Master from Doctor Who, not to mention Chris Pratt as Emmett, Elizabeth Banks as Wyldstyle, Alison Brie as UniKitty and Charlie Day as Benny from The Lego Movie. Pratt will also play the dual role of his character Owen Grady from Jurassic World.
Gary Oldman will be voicing the game’s head villain Lord Vortech, and Joel McHale will bring his dry sense of humor to X-PO, the game’s robot guide. These names are just the tip of the Lego iceberg, so you should go check out the voice cast trailer below and see just how many great names they have lined up:
