LeBron James Is Officially Bringing ‘Space Jam 2’ To The Big Screen In 2021

It’s time to jam, now! Over 20 years after the original, Space Jam 2 is officially coming to the big screen. With LeBron James at the helm, the movie’s release is right around the corner.

Back To Looney Tune Land

After many rumors, it’s been confirmed that James will star in the basketball sequel, which is set to premiere on July 16, 2021. Terence Nance will direct while Ryan Coogler has signed on as producer. The movie is expected to begin filming in 2019 after the NBA season wraps in June.

While no plot details have been released, a major character from the Looney Tunes crew is already expected to return– the one and only Bugs Bunny. In a tweet shared by James’ production company, SpringHill Entertainment, we see an animated locker room with both Bugs and James’ names.

Big Shoes To Fill

Of course, James is following in the footsteps of his famed basketball predecessor, Michael Jordan. Jordan teamed up with Bugs, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and others on the Tune Squad to battle it out on the court against the Monstars.

The 1996 film is one of the biggest basketball movies of all time. Needless to say, James and the team associated with this sequel have to bring their A-game. However, James is excited to bring the spirit of the film for the next generation coming up.

Reaching A New Generation

James realizes that it will take a lot for this sequel to be a success and he’s ready to rise to the occasion. However, he’s more concerned about the kids of today seeing a positive film that encourages them to make their dreams a reality.

“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie,” James said in an interview. “It’s so much bigger. I’d just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don’t just give up on their dreams.” Viewers will see what this sequel brings to the table on July 16, 2021.
