[ # ] A Back to the Future reunion!
July 17th, 2015 under Freeform, Lea Thompson, Michael J Fox, Reunions


Believe it or not, it has been 30 years since Back to the Future came out. To honor the milestone, Marty McFly (Michael J Fox), his mom Lorraine (Lea Thompson) and Doc (Christopher Lloyd) reunited for the London Film Festival and Comic Con. Even though the movie came out in 1985, they haven’t aged a day since. Maybe it is time they do Back to the Future 4?
2015 is a big year for the trilogy for another reason because that’s the year that Back to the Future 2 took place. Recently, I spoke with Lea Thompson about that and I asked her what it is like living in this version of 2015 after living in the other one. She told me, “I think when we were doing Back to the Future 2, I think we all knew it was a kitchy version of the future. It was very dark and kitchy.” Then she added, “I don’t think any of us actually thought that 2015 would look like that. When you’re doing a movie about the future, you kind of have to put flying cars in even though it will never happen.” She explained, “Nobody wants to get in a flying car, I just don’t want to. It’s too dangerous.” She concluded the question with, “It’s interesting because in the 2015 version of Back to the Future, I was like 85 or something. Getting old is weird anyway, but to have it be marked by that is kind of an interesting experience for me.”
Her character didn’t look 85 in the movie and she doesn’t look 54 today. She still looks like the teen she played in the film that changed her life and many fans’ lives all over the world.
Thompson has been working nonstop since the Back to the Future franchise and on August 24th you will be able to see her in Switched at Birth‘s midseason premiere on ABC Family.
