To celebrate the 30th anniversary (yep, it's really has been three decades!) of Robert Zemeckis' sci-fi classic, Back to the Future, Universal has dusted off the DeLorean, and Christopher Lloyd, for one last ride.

A special one-off live-action short featuring the eccentric inventor himself will be included on the special edition Blu-ray and is titled 'Doc Brown Saves the World.' But don't worry; you don't have to buy the trilogy to get a glimpse of the Doc back in action, just check out this nostalgia-inducing teaser trailer!

The Return of an Icon...

...And Its Beloved Inventor

Great scott, what does this button do?!

Watch the full teaser below:

Unfortunately, it seems this is the closest we're gonna get to a Back to the Future revival. In an interview with The Telegraph, director Robert Zemeckis made it explicitly clear that a reboot would happen only over his dead body:

That can’t happen until both Bob and I are dead. I mean, to me, that’s outrageous. Especially since it’s a good movie. It’s like saying, ‘Let’s remake Citizen Kane. Who are we going to get to play Kane?’ What folly, what insanity is that? Why would anyone do that?

However, a documentary titled Back in Time is due for release later this year, and chronicles the movie's trailblazing influence on the industry and its many adoring fans. Check out the trailer below:

The Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Blu-ray and DVD trilogies will be released on October 21.
