Great Scott! Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd were together again in a Back To The Future reunion.
Well, for all we know they could have just zipped to the red carpet from 1985, 1955, 2015 or even 1885. Those two have been all over the place in time.
Let’s hope they’ve not disrupted the continuum.
The two actors appeared at The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s annual gala in New York City, which raises money in the search for a cure for Parkinson’s.
Fox was diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disorder in 1991, and the foundation was set up in 2000. The website explains since 2000, The Michael J. Fox Foundation has funded more than $800 million of research into a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.
Lloyd shared his support for his co-star in a picture on Instagram, which he captioned:
For almost 20 years, my dear friend Michael and his @teamfoxmjff foundation has lead the way in research for Parkinson’s disease, the second most common brain disease after Alzheimer’s.
In total, they have funded over $800 million in research to create greater access to proper drug treatment and ultimately find a cure. Please find all the info on the foundation in my bio and HELP if you can!

The gala often attracts celebrity guests, and this year rock star Joan Jett took to the stage and played electric guitar alongside Fox, no doubt impressing guests in the same way Marty McFly wowed his audience with his 1955 rendition of Johnny B. Goode.
The 52-year-old thanked the guests who had attended the ‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s’ event with a series of pictures on his Instagram.
Gala time again, what an amazing night! So many friends came out to play.
Thank you all!
This isn’t the first time Fox and Lloyd have reunited; the pair also met up with Marty’s mum Lorraine, played by Lea Thompson, and nemesis Biff Tannen, aka Thomas Wilson, back in August.
Lloyd shared the epic snap on Instagram, writing ‘this was special’:
Unfortunately the DeLorean was nowhere to be seen – though that’s not to say it wasn’t hidden in a cave somewhere.
