90s Kids Rejoice, Space Jam 2 Has A Release Date

Published

on

Warner Bros. has officially slated their forthcoming sequel to 1996’s cult-favourite Space Jam, which will star basketball legend LeBron James.

A Space Jam 2 has been rumoured since 2015, when LeBron James and his company (SpringHill Entertainment) signed a deal with Warner Bros. Back then, director Justin Lin (Star Trek Beyond) was reportedly in negotiations to helm the feature for a 2016 release, but that deal never truly materialised. Lin will now executive produce the sequel alongside Black Panther’s Ryan Coogler, with Terence Nance (Random Acts of Flyness) set to direct.

Plot details are scarce, but then that could be said of the first film, and that’s been out for over twenty years. The sequel is expected to follow similar beats to the original, with LeBron James (in place of Michael Jordan) teaming up with the Looney Tunes for an all-star game of b-ball. Bill Murray’s cameo is as of yet unconfirmed.

Space Jam 2 has been pencilled in for a July 16th, 2021 release.
