Space Jam was one of my favorite movies growing up, and I still watch it on the regular in my adult life. Ever since I was young and watching the movie at my Grandma's house, I have been hoping for a sequel. Since the movie was released in 1996 I had all but given up hope on a sequel... until last week when Lebron James revealed that plans for Space Jam 2 are coming... and soon.
Lebron did announce that filming is set to begin this summer. While SpringHill Entertainment, the company behind the movie announced that we can expect to see it on July 16th, 2021.
Ryan Coogler will direct the movie, who was also behind Black Panther and Get Out. While he is set to star in the sequel, Lebron is also going to be an executive producer on the flick alongside Coogler.
