We already knew that the upcoming Lego Dimensions video game would be a universe-bending mashup of characters from franchises including Back to the Future, Jurassic World, Ghostbusters, Lord of the Rings and, of course, The Lego Movie. Today, we found out a lot more about the voice actors behind the game, and it's a veritable treasure trove of big-name actors and some of the best video game voice talent you can find. Perhaps most notably, both Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd will reprise their roles as Marty McFly and Doc Brown. It's no surprise Lloyd is involved -- he voiced Doc in Telltale Games' Back to the Future series a few years ago and was featured in advertisements for Lego Dimensions. But Fox hasn't performed as McFly in any official capacity in years.

Another unsurprising but nevertheless huge get for Lego Dimensions is Chris Pratt, who will be reprising his roles in both The Lego Movie and Jurassic World. Plenty of other key talent from The Lego Movie is back, including Elizabeth Banks, Charlie Day and Alison Brie. Unfortunately, Will Arnett isn't doing his best Batman impression this time around, but veteran voice actor Troy Baker (The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and too many other titles to count) will take his shot at the caped crusader.

As for the Ghostbusters side of things, Consequence of Sound noticed that IMDB listings show Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson playing Ray and Winston; the late Harold Ramis will provide the voice for Egon through archival recordings. Other stars participating include Gary Oldman (as the game's main villain), Joel McHale (as your robot guide), Stephen Merchant and Ellen McLain (as Portal 2's Wheatly and GlaDOS), J.K. Simmons in an as-yet unannounced role, and more. There really are too many names to cover here -- check out the video below to get more details on this all-star voice cast.
