Although it's been 38 years since the release of the first Back to the Future movie, the trilogy feels ever-present in pop culture. Fans of the iconic films have seen actors Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd reunite at New York Comic Con last fall and tease a potential new BTTF project via Twitter, and it seems like the stars have no intention of missing any potential meet-ups. Just recently, the cast of BTTF was photographed at the Fan Expo Portland convention with smiles all around.

Posted to Instagram by Fox and his co-star Lea Thompson, these heartwarming pictures show the core cast nearly four decades after they rose to superstardom. “Wow honestly had the best time today with my #bttf family,” Thompson wrote. She posed with Fox, Lloyd, and Thomas F. Wilson (who played Biff Tannen) in a series of group shots. “I love being at these FanExpo events and seeing some of my favorite people like Lea, Tom, Chris, and all of you #bttf heads. Heavy,” Fox said in an Instagram story. (“Heavy” is a reference to his character Marty McFly, who used the word to describe things that astonished him.)

Thompson's carousel of photos also included a couple of videos with her beloved costars. “My favorite favorite guy ever,” she said to Wilson in the video. He gave her a hug and then got into character, saying, “Hello, anybody home? Huh? Think Lea, think.” Lloyd also shared a group portrait on his Instagram, captioning it, “Found the flux capacitor. Brought us all back to 2023 just in time for @fanexpoportland.” All in all, it seemed like a memorable event for the stars, and hopefully, it marks the return of this beloved series in another project very soon, though there is no word yet.

The stars of Back to the Future reunited at the Fan Expo Portland convention in Portland, Oregon.
