A short new promo for Grownup Swim’s Rick and Morty options Christopher Lloyd enjoying the titular Rick Sanchez, scratching an itch that has persevered for a lot of followers for the reason that present’s genesis as a Again to the Future spoof.
Within the 14-second clip, we see Lloyd hop out of a portal and into his storage alongside Jaeden Martell (Knives Out, It), enjoying a reasonably convincing Morty. Lloyd then does his finest riff on Han Solo’s well-known line from Star Wars: The Drive Awakens, with a signature Rick Sanchez belch added for good measure: “Morty, we’re home.”
Except for an “aw, jeez” from Martell, that’s it. There’s no express point out of whether or not that is an allusion to a possible Lloyd cameo in Sunday’s season 5 finale, or if it’s simply one other fast one-off clip — which the showrunners have made a number of over the years. The clip is accompanied on Grownup Swim’s varied social media accounts by “C-132,” although, which is how completely different universes inside the present are named. Rick and Morty’s primary storyline takes place in universe C-137.
Does that multiversal proximity imply something? Looks like followers should wait till Sunday night time to seek out out. Casting Lloyd as Sanchez for a part of an precise episode would really feel like a enjoyable approach to shut the loop on the collection… if Rick and Morty’s creators weren’t contracted to make dozens extra episodes within the coming years. Even when it’s only for this promo, although, it’s a pleasant nod to the present’s origins, and a satisfying one at that.
