Back to the Future's Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd have reunited more than 30 years after the third and final film of the franchise – and absolutely no time travel was required.

Lloyd, who played Doc Brown, took to his Instagram account on Thursday (March 5) to share an image of himself with Fox – aka Marty McFly – as they took part in a game of poker for charity.

"Going 88mph for the @michaeljfoxorg Poker Night," Lloyd captioned the post.

This isn't actually the first time they've publicly reunited since the end of Back to the Future. Back in 2018, they both joined up on the red carpet for a fundraising event for The Michael J Fox Foundation, the Parkinson's charity Fox founded following his own diagnosis.

Earlier in the same year, the entire cast, including Lea Thompson and Tom Wilson – who played Marty's mum Lorraine and the series' villain Biff, respectively – got together for a full reunion.

While it seems highly unlikely that the cast will get together for a fourth instalment of the series, Lloyd previously revealed that he "would love to do Doc again, no question".

"It's tough to come up with an idea that contains the excitement of the original three," he told The Hollywood Reporter back in 2017.

"So it would be a real challenge for the writers to come up with an original Back to the Future story that has the same passion and intensity and excitement as the other three. But it could be done, you never know."
