Wilson likewise posted the same selfie on his account, writing: "Okay, so this happened. 2023."

The FAN EXPO Portland convention featured three days of "fun-filled, fan culture" between Feb. 17 to 19 at the Oregon Convention Center. Aside from the Back to the Future cast, the event welcomed the likes of William Shatner, Sam Raimi, Anson Mount, Ron Perlman, Katee Sackhoff, Matthew Lewis, and Brent Spiner, among others.

Tens of thousands of fans attended the convention to experience the "ultimate playground" for all things anime, comics, gaming, horror, and sci-fi.

Cult classic sci-fi film Back to the Future premiered in theaters in 1985. It was a critical and commercial success, earning over $381 million (around P21 billion) to become the highest-grossing film worldwide that year.
