Fans and brands alike are excited about the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, the film that started the classic time-traveling trilogy starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd. Pepsi confirmed Monday that it had created Pepsi Perfect, the beverage Marty (Fox) ordered when he journeyed to Oct. 21, 2015 in Back to the Future Part II.

The special edition soda will be available for online purchase on the very BTTF-significant date of Oct. 21. Only 6,500 Pepsi Perfect bottles — which will come in a collectible case — will be sold to fans in the United States. Each 16.9-ounce bottle will be filled with Pepsi and be priced at $20.15.

Not all Back to the Future lovers will have to wait till Oct. 21 to get their hands on Pepsi Perfect, though. The special edition beverage will be a gift for certain lucky (and dedicated) Comic Con fans starting on Oct. 8. The venue, New York City’s Javits Center, will have a Pepsi Perfect world, including a Café 80’s inspired booth featuring a DeLorean and Wild Gunman arcade game. The first 200 fans who show up at the Pepsi Perfect Booth (#CP101) dressed in full Marty McFly regalia will be rewarded with the special edition Pepsi.

Not just any McFly imitation outfit will do; fans must be wearing a puffy red vest or Back to the Future Part II jacket, blue jeans, white high-top sneakers, and a watch. If you have a hoverboard, that’s awesome but not required. The film’s special Nike MAG shoes aren’t a must either, but they’d add some serious authenticity. For those who’d rather show off their Wild Gunman skills, fans can play at the booth at 3 p.m. every day for a chance to win Pepsi Perfect.

“Pepsi fans asked and we heard them loud and clear,” said Lou Arbetter, Senior Director of Marketing of PepsiCo in a press release. “The Back to the Future trilogy was as big a moment in pop culture history then as it is now, 30 years later.”

Pepsi hyped its new special edition bottle on Twitter on Monday, saying, “The future is now.”

Watch Pepsi Perfect make its debut in Back to the Future Part II below.

Amazon is bringing us Back to the Future. In honor of the 30th anniversary of the first film, the entire trilogy will be available for streaming or download at no additional cost for Prime members during the month of October. It's the perfect gift for fans of the films, which star Michael J. Fox as Marty and Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown.

This development is huge: It will be the first time the classic films have been available for unlimited viewing on a subscription VOD service, according to Variety. On top of that, Amazon's Prime Video will be the only streaming service with the BTTF trilogy. If fan excitement could be harnessed into energy, it'd be enough to power a time-traveling DeLorean.

Three decades ago today, theater audiences were first introduced to the story of Marty McFly, the teenager played by Michael J. Fox who accidentally traveled back in time in a super-charged DeLorean. Although there's been no shortage of celebration surrounding the 30th anniversary of Robert Zemeckis' 1985 film Back to the Future, one Kansas city is going all-in on commemorating the movie by renaming itself "Hill Valley" for a day in honor of McFly's fictional hometown.

The city of Augusta officially changed its name to Hill Valley today (July 3), according to The Butler County Times-Gazette, making a strong case for the city of more than 9,200 residents to gain bona fide super-fan status.
