Doc and Marty, the beloved characters from the iconic Back to the Future trilogy, reunited 35 years after the release of the first film!

Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox, who portrayed Doc and Marty respectively, met at a charity poker tournament. Fans may be curious about their current lives, occupations, ages, and how long it has been since they last saw each other. Rest assured, we’ll provide you with all the details!

In 2020, Christopher Lloyd, 81, and Michael J. Fox, 58, finally reunited—35 years after their characters made their farthest leap into the future in Back to the Future. Lloyd shared a photo on his Instagram with the caption: “speeding 88 mph to Michael J. Fox’s poker night.”

The comments under the photo demonstrate the enduring warmth people feel for this duo:

“Doc and McFly are legends.” “This picture made my day. Thank you gentlemen!” “No emoji can express how happy I am to see you together!” “This is powerful!” “People from the future live forever!”

It has been 35 years since the release of the first film in the trilogy. Throughout these years, Michael J. Fox has spent 29 of them battling Parkinson’s disease, which equates to exactly half of his life. The evening was dedicated to raising funds for Parkinson’s research through an annual poker tournament organized by Fox himself.

Interestingly, it’s not uncommon to see the actors together. A photo from May 2019 captures another gathering:

“I forgot, doc, you invented Instagram?”

Did you recognize anyone else in the picture from that meeting?

In addition to Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox, Leah Thompson (who played Marty’s mother in Back to the Future, despite being the same age as Fox) and Thomas Francis Wilson (the main villain Biff Tannen in the trilogy) are also present. The latter turned 60 years old.

Back in 2015, the actors appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s show as Marty and Doc. The sketch portrayed the characters entering the real year 2015, following the plot of the second part of the trilogy. The audience gave them a standing ovation.

According to a 2018 poll conducted by THR and Morning Consult, 71% of Americans expressed their desire to see a new installment of Back to the Future. The film surpassed “Indiana Jones” and “Jurassic Park,” ranking among the top three most anticipated sequels.

However, the director of the film, Robert Zemeckis, stated firmly in 2018 that as long as he and franchise co-creator Bob Gale are alive, there will be no Back to the Future 4.

Christopher Lloyd, on the other hand, mentioned that he wouldn’t mind reprising his role as Doc. The 81-year-old actor continues to act, as does Michael J. Fox, who has shifted to voiceover work since the early 2000s due to his illness.

Even if we don’t have the opportunity to see these actors portray their legendary characters once more, witnessing them together brings joy to us all. Nostalgia is a powerful force, and Christopher Lloyd, Michael J. Fox, and the Back to the Future trilogy have made an indelible contribution to cinema, leaving us with cherished memories.
