The iconic duo embraced as they welcomed each other, with Fox, 61, who has Parkinson’s disease, saying that they had “instant chemistry” when they worked on the movie.
“The best part of this movie was working with Chris,” he said of his now 83-year-old co-star.
The footage and photos left fans moved, with one Twitter user writing: “If you need me I’ll just be here watching this on a loop.”
Another tweeted: "Such a beautiful moment, Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd reuniting at Comic Con.”

One commenter share: "This duo is and will remain LEGENDARY," while another added, “Happy to see that their friendship is still there after all these years."
Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991 at the age of 29. He later founded a charity which works to further treatment of the condition.
In 2020, Fox said he could be at “the end of his acting career” due to the worsening symptoms of Parkinson’s.
