    "Space Jam 2" With Lebron James Has A Release Date And People Have Mixed Emotions

    The remix.

    We all knew this mega-sequel was coming, but now there’s an official date.

    NBA / Via giphy.com

    That’s right. We’re talking about Space Jam 2 starring the one-and-only LeBron James.

    It was revealed in this tweet put out by LeBron’s production company SpringHill Entertainment.

    THIS IS NOT A DRILL! SPACE JAM 2 IS COMING JULY 2021!!! 🏀

    Can you believe it’s been over 20 years since Michael Jordan played some b-ball with the Looney Tunes crew?

    Warner Bros.

    Oh, and did we mention the movie will also star Bugs Bunny and Lola Bunny?

    As expected, there were some "haters" reacting to the news, like sports commentator Skip Bayless.

    Space Jam 2? I'll stick with the original, thank you. A sequel starring a phony goat cannot be as good.

    But plenty of people are legit pumped about this news, too.

    Not gonna lie pretty pumped for Space Jam 2

    And then others were giving LeBron props for this announcement as he prepares to lead the Lakers in the playoffs.

    LeBron releasing the Space Jam 2 date right before he begins heroically carrying the Lakers to the playoffs is next-level marketing.

    Someone even floated the idea that perhaps Kobe would've been a better fit for the flick.

    Space Jam 2 with Kobe would have been incredible 👀🐐

    The sequel will be out on July 16, 2021. Yep, that’s over two years away.

    Get out of here with this Space Jam 2 nonsense. They’ve been teasing this for 10yrs and now they give us a release date 2.5yrs from now 😒

    Still, you know this is going to be a lot of you when the time comes.
