Basketball fans may be waiting in limbo for the season to get back into full swing again, but that doesn’t mean that basketball-related events have come to a complete grinding halt. In fact, it seems as though LeBron James is pretty busy at the moment, and that’s largely because he has a big secret he’s trying to keep to himself. He’s let out a few little nuggets of information, though, and he has recently teased the new Space Jam 2 logo…
An Epic Movie
Those who love watching basketball have probably watched the original Space Jam movie at least once. This film was released in 1996 and starred the incredible Michael Jordan at the helm. Because of this, Space Jam became synonymous with the sport, and it’s become the movie that everyone associates with some of the greatest names in the business.
A New Addition
Although many assumed that Space Jam would be the only animated/live-action basketball of its kind, Warner Bros. announced in 2014 that there was a Space Jam sequel in the works and that they had brought another basketball legend along for the ride. Yes, they were able to win over LeBron James, and filming began in 2019.
Keeping Things Quiet
Despite the fact that we know Space Jam 2 will be released in theaters in 2021, that’s all we really knew about the new addition. Everyone involved has largely kept things quiet — until now. In a recent Instagram post, LeBron has not only teased the new Space Jam logo, but he’s also teased the new name. Wearing a hat that reads, “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” the basketball legend teamed this post with a caption that featured some serious Bugs-Bunny-esque emojis and a date for next year.
So, not only do we have the basketball season to look forward to, but we also have the Space Jam sequel featuring LeBron James. How epic.
