A Space Jam sequel is coming in 2021 with LeBron James and Bugs Bunny
In 1996, adults and children were blown away by Chicago Bulls' super star Michael Jordan's Hollywood debut in Space Jam. Now, the movie is set to get a sequel with none other than current basketball legend LeBron James.
The Lakers star teased the new movie on social media and revealed the title as well. It will be called "Space Jam: A New Legacy" and is expected to be in theaters on July 16, 2021.
He wore a hat bearing "Space Jam: A New Legacy" on Instagram and posted the logo backward.
NBA stars to appear in Space Jam 2 include Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, and Kyle Kuzma.
The original movie featured characters from the Looney Tunes universe, including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Taz, as it told a fictionalised account of how Jordan spent the years following his initial retirement from the NBA in 1993.
