Great Scott! Can you believe that Back to the Future is 35 years old this year? The sci-fi comedy classic debuted in 1985, and it's one of the best films from that decade. Now, actor Josh Gad has put together another episode of Reunited Apart--a video conference call featuring actors, writers, and directors--and this time, it features the cast of Back to the Future.

On April 27, Gad debuted the first episode of the YouTube series featuring the cast of Goonies. On May 11, Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, director Robert Zemeckis, and more came together to talk to Gad about their experiences on the film and do some "table" reads of the scripts from the three films. Check it out below.

For any fan of the movie series, it's just a lot of fun to see what these actors are up to and what they look like now. It will put a smile on any fan's face. Gad's new series is a fundraiser for Project Hope, which delivers masks and protective equipment to health workers on the front line of the pandemic.

Sadly, a few faces were missing, including Crispin Glover, who had a falling out after not appearing in the sequel, compounded with Zemeckis using a lookalike double. Glover sued over the film because of the bait and switch with audiences, which led to new rules within the Screen Actors Guild. The other main actor missing was Thomas F. Wilson who played Biff Tannen, Griff Tannen, and Buford 'Mad Dog' Tannen throughout the three films.

In other Back to the Future news, writer Bob Gale revealed some info about the timetable for the first movie, stating that Marty was only in 1955 for seven days, and that's why his parents don't really remember him in present day--1985.
