Space Jam 2 Will Hit Theaters In The Summer Of 2021

 

Everybody get up, it’s time to slam now. Well, maybe not now. More like in a couple years or so. Way back in 1996, Michael Jordan exploded onto the big screen in the delightful family film Space Jam, which brought together the world of professional basketball with the world of the Looney Tunes. As a kid, it was pretty fun to watch these characters interact with Jordan, and even as an adult, I can still appreciate some of the humor brought on by the likes of Bill Murray.

We’ve known for what feels like several years that Warner Bros. would be pursuing a sequel to this franchise, and that LeBron James would be taking over for Michael. Jordan as the resident basketball expert in whatever adventure awaits them in the sequel. Now, according to THR, the film finally has a release date of July 16, 2021 — so well over two years away. Black Panther‘s Ryan Coogler will be producing and Random Acts Of Flyness‘ Terence Nuance is directing.

There is no word on what the story of the sequel will be. We have no idea what dangers the Looney Tunes will be facing this time around that would force them to reach into “3D Land” once more. Though, as with the first one, I hope this film is full of cameos from both Hollywood and the NBA, as it’s those aspects that really made the first one shine (that montage with the NBA players who got their talent stolen trying to adjust to life without them is amazing).
