Synopsis

NBA superstar LeBron James teams up with Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes for this long-awaited sequel. Artwork is from the first film.

This is the followup to Space Jam, which was released in 1996 and starred Michael Jordan as a fictionalized version of himself. A sequel has been in discussion for a long time and first started to truly move forward in 2016. It was then LeBron had signed on to star and Justin Lin was pegged to direct. Eventually, the project was passed to Terence Nance. Production is slated to begin in the summer of 2019, well ahead of its release date.

It's been said this film is more of a reboot than a true sequel, and the filmmakers hope to find a role for Jordan.
