Great Scott! Is that the stars of ‘Back To The Future’ together again?
As these photos show, the three main prongs of the trilogy – Michael J. Fox (Marty McFly), Lea Thompson (Lorraine) and Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown), reunited in London over the weekend to share their memories of filming the iconic franchise 30 years ago.
The trio got together for a panel at London Film and Comic-Con, sitting down to reminisce about the first movie, which was originally released on 3 July 1985.
Fox and Thompson, both 54 made a rare appearance with 76-year-old Lloyd in front of rabid fans at the event which was held at Kensington Olympia, discussing the making of the film and why it has endured.
“[Marty’s] just a cipher for the audience to take in what’s happening and see their feelings reflected back,” explained Fox. “I don’t know if I did that on my own, as I just fell into the rhythm that Bob [Zemeckis] and Bob [Gale] created. So, Marty was just everyman. Marty was every kid. He was just supposed to represent everyone’s reaction to what was happening.”
Thompson also shared a candid snap on Instagram (above), writing, “BFF #BTF30 #MichaelJFox #ChrisLloyd #LondonComicCon Such joy to see these guys.”
The film has continued to excite fans even after three decades. Last summer, audiences flocked to a mock-up of Hill Valley in East London for a Secret Cinema event.
Meanwhile, the first movie will also be shown in cinemas for one-night-only on 21 October – the exact date that Marty McFly time-travelled to in ‘Back To The Future Part II’.
