It’s been over 20 years since Space Jam, and people still recite lines from the film again and again. Luckily, a whole new generation will be able to experience this beloved movie with Space Jam 2. We look at a few things we do know about this forthcoming film.

LeBron’s Time To Shine

For a few years, LeBron James was connected with the project. With his move to the Lakers, it’ll be easier for him to work on the movie. Many assumed his move would benefit his blooming acting career. The star’s performance in Trainwreck received praise from The New Yorker, The Washington Post, and USA Today. Space Jam 2 will be his first starring role.

Alternative Space Jam?

This was originally slated to be a sequel to the popular 1996 film. Unfortunately, that might not happen. “Space Jam 2, while a part of the Space Jam franchise, is not considered a sequel,” ESPN reporter Dave McMenamin stated on Twitter. There’s no word yet if this is indeed a prequel or if it takes place in an alternate timeline.

Coogler On Deck

Ryan Coogler, who had an astonishing 2018 with Black Panther, will direct the movie. His work on the popular Marvel film drove James to choose him to work on the movie. “I loved his vision, so for Ryan to be able to bring that to kids, it’s amazing,” James told The Hollywood Reporter.

Some Help From Friends

It’s no secret that we’re going to get numerous cameos from current NBA players. One star that will probably appear is Blake Griffin, who made his acting debut in The Female Brain. Michael Jordan originally wanted the 5 time NBA All-Star player in the lead role. Isiah Thomas is another star looking to be in the film. In 2015, the star tweeted, “Watching Space Jam right now. If they make a Space Jam 2 I have to be the new Muggsy Bogues lol.”

Hit ‘Em High

LeBron & Co. are going to need a villainous team to defeat, which means the return of the Monstars. In the original film, these creatures stole the powers of iconic basketball players. When it comes to what iconic players might arrive, Michael Jordan is on the top of the list. An appearance from Jordan is inevitable.
