All the fans in attendance were tearing up.
The crowd at this year’s NYCC went wild during Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox‘s reunion. During their panel, they reminisced about working together on the Back to the Future movies.
If you didn’t already know, Fox and Lloyd were the leads in the Back to the Future franchise. It is a 1980s sci-fi classic that revolves around the story of Doc Brown after he threw Marty McFly into the 50s. He meets Doc from 1995 and asks for his help to get him back to the future.
Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd filled this year’s New York Comic Con with wholesomeness as they shared a moment. They also discussed the ‘BTTF’ movies and their characters.
The two discussed how Fox took over the role of Marty McFly in the 1985 movie from Eric Stoltz, who had initially been cast as the lead. “I felt that I barely made it through the [first] six weeks, and now I was gonna have to do it again?” Lloyd commented.
Fox also talked about their immediate chemistry on set, which he says made the movie work. “The chemistry was there from the first scene we had. It remained that way for three movies, and it hasn’t gone away, by the way,” the actor said.
Due to his diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, Fox ended his career as an actor in 2020. Fox has spoken and written extensively about his condition. His organization has provided over $1 billion in funding for Parkinson’s research. Fox launched the Michael J. Fox Foundation in 2000 after publicly disclosing his diagnosis.
Additionally, the duo signed autographs for a large number of fans who, in Fox’s words, “gave me my whole life.”
