The Back to the Future cast is offering up a bit of relief during these trying times. On Monday, the stars of the hit franchise reunited via a Zoom call nearly 35 years after the first film hit theaters to relive classic moments, all while raising money for coronavirus relief efforts.

Hosted by actor Josh Gad on his new YouTube series “Reunited Apart,” Michael J. Fox (Marty McFly), Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown), Lea Thompson (Lorraine McFly), co-writer Bob Gale, and director Robert Zemeckis (who was flanked by a pair of Nike MAGs and a hoverboard) sit down for nearly 30-minutes to deliver some fun-filled memories about creating the films. If that isn’t enough to keep you entertained, actresses Mary Steenburgen (Clara Clayton) and Elisabeth Shue (Jennifer Parker), as well as musician Huey Lewis and composer Alan Silvestri joined in to relive the fun and talk about the franchise. Superfan J.J. Abrams even joins the call, speaking on the link between the franchise and Rick and Morty, which draws on the dynamic between Marty and Doc Brown.

Time-traveling back to the ‘80s, the cast and crew speak on everything from on-set production stories to even talking about a potential reboot. The cast had no problem revving the engines back up to 88 miles per hour, sharing a variety of narratives surrounding the film’s inspiration, music, production, and much, much more.

You can catch the Back to the Future cast in action above. The video has helped raise more than $7,000 USD for Project Hope, a charity dedicated to health care workers — you can donate to the non-profit here.
