Return to the future It has become the quintessential time travel movie, it has accompanied many generations and it will surely continue to do so because when you earn that kind of recognition, there is no way to lose it.
Due to the direction of Robert Zemeckis and the production of Steven Spielberg, the world of science fiction would never be the same, as they marked a before and after for any time travel movie. The recognition also goes to its protagonists, Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, who played Marty McFly and Doc Emmett Brown, respectively.
The nostalgia that this film has caused since 1985 is not equal to anyone, not to mention the emotions that it continues to raise today, such as those of last October 8 at Comic-Con 2022 in New York City, United States, where the reunion by Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd elicited more than a shout of joy.
Wrapped in a wave of applause, Michael, 61, and Christopher, 83, burst into the panel to join fans of the saga and share details about what was happening on the set of Return to the future in those times, but not before greeting each other with a big hug that softened the hearts of all the guests and the social networks.

One of the things they shared with the public was the moment they met. The actors revealed that their friendship happened almost by chance, because at first, the actor who would play Marty McFly was Erik Stoltz, but honestly it is difficult to imagine this famous saga without this beloved duo.
I didn’t know Michael in person and seeing him, I felt an immediate chemistry.
In addition to using the space to accompany the fansMichael did not miss the opportunity to talk about the Parkinson’s disease that he has suffered from since 1990, which he calls a great blessing, since it has given him the opportunity to use his voice to give him visibility, so much so that he created a foundation for his name where it raises funds for research on the disorder.
Parkinson’s is the gift I keep taking, but it’s a gift, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything… People like Chris have been there for me and many of you have. It’s not about what I have, it’s about what I’ve been given: the voice to do this and help people.
Finally, Michael took a few moments to remember his mother, Phyllis Piper, who died a few weeks ago. The actor remembered that she had recommended him not to accept the job in Return to the future, Well, at that time he also worked in another production and working 24 hours a day would take its toll, but fate allowed us to meet the Marty McFly that we all remember.
To this day, well…until two weeks ago, my mom thought it was a really bad idea to do ‘Back to the Future.’ She loved the movie, but she was right: I got tired of it.
