If you’re one of those who was really looking forward to the long-awaited sequel to Space Jam, it appears your wait just got slightly shorter. Recently, the title for the new film was revealed, thanks to an Instagram post by new star LeBron James.
Space Jam: A New Legacy is slated to carry the on torch for the iconic first film starring Michael Jordan and usher in an entertaining spectacle featuring today’s most decorated basketball stars alongside the timeless Looney Tunes characters including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Will E. Coyote.
Alongside James, the film will feature a host of NBA and WNBA stars such as Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Kyrie Irving, Nneka Ogwumike, and Diana Taurasi. Joining the basketball luminaries are the likes of Sonequa Martin-Green (The Walking Dead, Star Trek: Discovery) and Don Cheadle (Avengers: Endgame).
Malcolm D. Lee will direct A New Legacy, and Ryan Coogler (Black Panther) will produce the film.
Space Jam: A New Legacy will release in theatres sometime in 2021.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
