'Space Jam 2' Starring LeBron James Set to Premiere July 16, 2021

SpringHill Entertainment has announced the release date for Space Jam 2.

The movie is the much-anticipated sequel to the popular 1996 basketball movie which starred NBA hero Michael Jordan.

The film will premiere on July 16, 2021, after years of speculation and rumors. Beyond James' role, it's not yet clear who will star in the movie. And in two years, LeBron James will find himself in a similar situation next to Bugs. Following the release date announcement of the film, Iron Galaxy's Dave Lang chimed in on Twitter and basically demanded that he be the one to work on the game if it were to happen.

For years, fans have been joking about a possible sequel to the hit live-action/animation hybrid film starring National Basketball Association star Michael Jordan alongside the beloved characters of the Looney Tunes, Space Jam, and now it's finally happening. "The combination of LeBron's global media presence and Warner Bros.' unmatched production and distribution expertise is a big win for fans everywhere".

Space Jam is a fan favorite franchise that featured Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes.

The seeds were sewn back in 2013 when Lebron tweeted that he would be interested in starring in Space Jam 2. Are you excited for a Space Jam sequel or do you think it's been too long since the original? One thing that seems certain is that both Bugs and Lola Bunny will be in the movie, judging by the image SpringHill Entertainment tweeted.

Lakers star LeBron James and Black Panther director Ryan Coogler are teaming up to create the project. In 2015, he made an appearance in "Trainwreck" alongside Amy Schumer and Bill Hader.
