Back to the Future was the book tie-in to the movie Back to the Future. It was adapted into Back to the Future: The Story.

There were several differences from the movie, with new scenes shown and others in the movie not shown:

  • Marty McFly is called by Emmett Brown at school about the test.
  • Marty is trapped in detention with Mr. Strickland and devises a plan to escape to catch his band's audition. After Strickland destroys his Sony Walkman in a woodworking vise, Marty grabs a lens from a projector. Marty applies some gum to the back of a matchbook and shoots it up to a smoke alarm on the ceiling. He then focuses sunlight through the lens at the matchbook but is forced to hurry before Strickland closes all the blinds. Marty succeeds in igniting the matchbook and setting off the fire alarm and sprinkler system, escaping out the door to the audition. This was supposed to be in the film, but was only filmed with Eric Stotlz as Marty and not Michael J. Fox .
  • When Marty arrives at Lyon Estates in 1955, instead of hiding the DeLorean behind a sign, there is a model home that looks like his, and he hides the DeLorean in the garage.
  • When Marty tries to convince the 1955 Doc about the time machine, he waits until after dark, attends a movie at the Essex Theatre, and retrieves the DeLorean under cover of darkness, driving it up to Doc's garage.
  • George McFly talks to his father Arthur McFly about college. Here we see that his father is just as pathetic as he is, talking George out of the idea.
  • Extended scenes of Marty dressed up as "Darth Vader".
