LeBron James, the legendary basketball player who played in the NBA team Los Angeles Lakers, made a thrilling post with a hat with the logo of the new Space Jam movie, which he starred on through his personal Instagram account. Thus, the name of the movie was revealed, Space Jam 2: A New Legacy
Space Jam, the 1996 animated movie starring Michael Jordan, who is considered the greatest basketball player of all time, is getting ready to return after a 25-year break. In the sequel, this time the iconic Looney Tunes character Bugs Bunny’s partner will be LeBron James, the star basketball player who played in the Los Angeles Lakers.
Although the work for the highly anticipated film has been going on for a very long time, the details about the name and the history of the vision were unknown. LeBron, who shared a boomerang video with a hat with a new Space Jam 2: A New Legacy logo on his personal Instagram account, also filled our curiosity.
Shortly after this sharing, Space Jam’s official Twitter account shared the video of LeBron once more with the phrase ‘2021’. Let’s briefly talk about the subject of the original Space Jam movie, which was released in 1996 for those who do not remember or do not know.
The year is 1993. Michael Jordan retires from basketball and transitions to baseball. Meanwhile, a gang named Nerdlucks captures Bugs Bunny and other Looney Tunes characters. For the Looney Tunes characters to be released, they must defeat the basketball team made up of gang members. Gang members are impossible to defeat as they steal a few NBA players’ talent. That is why Looney Tunes characters ask for help from Michael Jordan. Jordan also agrees to help reluctantly.
Directed by Joe Pytka, the Space Jam movie collected a $230 million box office revenue worldwide with its $80 million budget.
Warner Bros, who owns the rights of the movie, announced in 2014 that he will shoot the sequel of Space Jam.
LeBron, whose eyes were turned on for the lead role since the project was announced, told a newspaper at that time, “I loved Space Jam. It was one of my favorite movies in my youth. If I had the opportunity to play it would be great.”
We do not have any information about the subject of the sequel for now, but we hope to learn much more as the history of vision approaches. Space Jam 2: A New Legacy, where we will watch star basketball player Lebron James, will be released in 2021.
