Some 20-plus years after the Michael Jordan-led original, Lebron James revealed that Space Jam 2 isn’t a joke — and Black Panther directed Ryan Coogler is producing it.
“I loved his vision [for Black Panther]… So for Ryan to be able to bring that to kids, it’s amazing.” – As told to Hollywood Reporter.
James also spoke on the true meaning behind the movie that he wants to youth to understand:
“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie… It’s so much bigger. I’d just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don’t just give up on their dreams. And I think Ryan did that for a lot of people.”
