Rick and Morty – 100% is one of the most interesting titles on television today. The creation of Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland remains one of the most mature, crazy and surprising animations, along with others like BoJack Horseman – 94%, although it ended its broadcast in 2020. What makes it interesting Rick and morty it is his ability to move from the profound to the philosophical absurdity. Beyond black comedy or classic adventure situations, the characters go through different ideological currents that genuinely create an interesting debate among fans.

Although many feared that the most recent season was not up to the task, critics and the audience have received it very well and consider that the magic of the series is still present. With moments like the Morty and Planetina breakup or the lurid truth about Beth, it’s clear that they can still be devastating and leave everyone thinking long after an episode ends. The good news is that we will still have Rick and morty for a good while, because a couple of years ago the creators signed a contract to deliver 70 episodes divided into seasons that are usually 10 chapters.
The end of the fifth season is a mystery, and the creators have done their best not to leak information. This makes one think, obviously, that they are preparing something incredible for this closing and that has made everyone speculate. The theory that has become the most popular, for now, is a possible appearance of bad versions of other characters; This is certainly not new to the show, but it all has to do with how the matter is approached.
However, now fans will have something else to speculate on. On his official Twitter account, Adult Swim published a very short video that shows us a new version of Rick and Morty … in live action:

The pleasant surprise is that Christopher Lloyd appears as Rick, accompanied by Jaeden Martell, better known for It (It) – 85%, like Morty. Unfortunately, the trailer does not tell us much, although they confirm that this version of the characters we see belongs to the C-132 universe. Whether it is genuinely a live-action episode or just clever publicity is unknown, as fans have been pitching Lloyd to play Rick for many years.

Christopher Lloyd has a long career within the industry, but among all his characters the one who is indisputably the most famous is Dr. Emmett Brown, from Back To The Future – 96%, where he shared credits with Michael J. Fox. The science fiction trilogy, directed by Robert Zemeckis, quickly became cult and still serves as a reference for other works today. Harmon and Roiland have explained several times that they are fans of these tapes and that Rick and morty was born out of this admiration. The creators started with a program called The Real Animated Adventures of Doc and Mharti, which was basically an animated parody of the movies and served as a starting point.
Rick is something of a more wicked and darker version of Emmett Brown, which is why fans have been asking for years to play him in a live-action version. Many fanarts have even been made about it. The idea came to Lloyd himself, who once remarked that he had seen few episodes of Rick and morty, but they seemed like a great parody of Return to the future and would love to be a part of it in some way.
This promo will surely generate a lot of theories. Will it really be possible to see a live-action episode? Important part of Rick and morty is that the characters travel through different universes where they find versions of themselves that end up generating a change, not always positive, and reaching a universe in real action would not be so extreme. The season five finale will premiere on September 5.
