Space Jam was firstly released in the year 1996 and has become a worldwide success. The legendary Michael Jordan has helped Looney Tunes to win the basketball game against a group of aliens who have attempted to turn them into attractions for their theme park.
Although the plot differs from the original film that starred Jordan, the Looney Tunes are back again in this Space Jam sequel.
“It’s not a sequel,” James told the Road Trippin’ podcast. “It’s called Space Jam: A New Legacy, it’s not called Space Jam 2.
“There will be a basketball game, I’ll say that. And there will be some people that are a little out of this world that we’re competing against.”
