Remember the game between Loony Toons, Michael Jordan, and the aliens?
The first original Space Jam movie was released in 1996. Joe Pytka has directed this American sports comedy film and it was a bit hit. For many of us, Space Jam remains a fond memory of the 90s. this movie tells the story of the imaginary events that happened to Micheal Jordan when he initially retired in 1993.
He helps the animated characters from Looney Toons to win a game against the monster aliens. This movie was released by Warner Bros. Pictures and it was a huge success. It made over $230 million worldwide. The Space Jam 2 movie will be called “Space Jam: A New Legacy” and Warner Animation Group will be producing it. Malcolm D. Lee will direct this upcoming film. It will most likely include famous names such as LeBron James, Don Cheadle, and Sonequa Martin-Green. Along with them, this movie will feature the return of our favorite Loony Toons characters such as Bugs Bunny, Duffy Duck, Tweety, and so on.
Space Jam 2 was being planned for a long time they were discussing this sequel right after the first movie released. But Michael Jordon refused to return for a sequel and that delayed things. After that refusal, many names were thought of, like Jeff Gordon, Tiger Woods, and such but none of these ideas bore any fruit. Ultimately the team settled on the basketball legend, LeBron James.
