In a move that has everyone’s inner 90s Kid shrieking in unmitigated glee, WB has confirmed that yes, SPACE JAM 2 is a thing that is happening. Finally.
Yesterday afternoon, Warner Bros. Entertainment announced a partnership with pro basketball player Lebron James’ production company, SpringHill Entertainment, that will cover TV, movies, and digital projects. The icing on this cake is the tweet posted by WB’s Roadshow Entertainment in response to fan queries. Take a look:
That’s right: SPACE JAM 2 is finally being made, and it will star Lebron James.
I can’t vouch for anyone else, but my childhood definitely included a healthy dose of Michael Jordan teaming up with the Looney Tunes to play a high-stakes game of basketball with evil talent-stealing corporate aliens. I cannot wait to see what WB and Lebron James will do with a sequel.
