“The best part of the movie was working with Chris.”
That’s what Michael J. Fox said after reuniting with his Back to the Future co-star Christopher Lloyd at New York Comic-Con this week.
The pair who starred as the coolest scientist/teenager duo in the history of cinema (Doc and Marty McFly) were visibly emotional as they hugged on stage nearly 40 years after the original film’s release:

During the event, they spoke of their time working together – “instant chemistry” – and their decades-long friendship. Fox also spoke about living with Parkinson’s and using his platform to help others through his charity, The Michael J. Fox Foundation:
“Parkinson’s is the gift that keeps on taking,” he said via Variety. “But it’s a gift, and I wouldn’t change it for anything. People like Chris have been there a lot for me, and so many of you have. It’s not about what I have, it’s about what I’ve been given — the voice to get this done, and help people out.”
Back to the Future was originally released in 1985. The sci-fi adventure film was such a hit, two more films were released in 1989 and 1990.
