Smash Hit Sci-Fi Comedy Stars Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson and Tom Wilson join Michael J. Fox at Texas’ Largest Pop Culture Convention
DALLAS (Feb. 6, 2018) – FAN EXPO DALLAS – the largest comics, sci-fi, horror, anime and gaming event in Texas – is powering up the flux capacitor with the announcement that the cast of “Back to the Future”; Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson and Tom Wilson, will join previously announced guest Michael J. Fox at the April 6-8, 2018, event at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.
Fox played the skateboarding time-traveler Marty McFly alongside Lloyd as Doc Brown, the mad genius who built a time machine out of a DeLorean sports car; Thompson as Marty’s mother Lorraine; and Wilson as the bullying Biff Tannen and other members of the Tannen family throughout time in the “Back to the Future” trilogy, one of the most successful in Hollywood history.
The beloved “Back to the Future” stars will take part in a special evening presentation, greet fans, sign autographs and pose for photo ops. Fans will also be able to get their photo taken in a movie-accurate replica of Doc’s vehicle of choice: the time traveling DeLorean – actual time travel not included.
The “Back to the Future” cast tops a celebrity roster at FAN EXPO DALLAS that includes recently announced Jeff Goldblum and Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, as well as Jason Momoa, Morena Baccarin, Ben McKenzie, Richard Dean Anderson, Felicia Day and Famke Janssen. Additional celebrity guests will be announced over the coming weeks. For more information about each of the guests, including bios and photos, please visit www.fanexpodallas.com/guests.
