The biggest sports star in the world playing basketball with the most famous cartoon characters of all time? That sounds like a recipe for a blockbuster—and that’s just what Space Jam was.
On this Michael Jordan starred alongside NBA superstars Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, Larry Bird, and Muggsy Bogues in the hybrid animation/live-action comedy, helping the Looney Tunes—like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, the Tasmanian Devil, and Elmer Fudd—defeat the evil “Monstars” in a groundbreaking cinematic feat.
Twenty years later, it’s all happening again—and maybe with LeBron James.
Warner Bros. announced in May 2016 that a sequel is in the works, and 90s kids across the world rejoiced. But details have been thin so far. UPDATE: Details still remain thin, but rumors are starting to fly in June 2018. With James expected to make his free agent decision in the coming week, a report from Basketball Society Online (the rumor must be taken with a grain of salt) says that James will debut the trailer for Space Jam 2 after he announces where he’ll be playing for the 2018-19 season.
Will this actually happen? Only time will tell. Either way, we dug through the Internet to figure out exactly what we know so far about the Space Jam sequel.
