LeBron James Teases That Space Jam 2 Is Still Set For 2021 Release

LeBron James Teases That Space Jam 2 Is Still Set For 2021 Release

LeBron James took to Instagram last night to tease fans with the news that Space Jam 2 is still set for a 2021 release.

During the coronavirus pandemic that has swept over the world, film releases have faced some uncertainty, so the post was definitely the little bit of excitement we needed right now, even if it is a year away.

When James, 35, posted the Boomerang video out to his 63.6 million followers, it led to speculation over the title for the sequel.

The hat he is wearing reads: "Space Jam: A New Legacy" and people think he's also given away the logo for the film.

Replying to the Instagram post, one fan wrote: "We just have to get through this year and 2021 will be great," while another added: "Dreams do come true."

A third asked: "Push up the date a lil bit I'm bored," aren't we all, fella. Aren't we all.

Space Jam Will Be On ITV2 This Afternoon

Last year, Warner Bros. confirmed that the next instalment to the franchise will be released July 16, 2021. We don't know whether that specific date is still set but it looks like 2021 is definitely a promising year.

Filming had already started last summer with reports that the cast and crew would begin shooting in June 2019, with many speculating that the time frame would give everyone a three-month period to wrap things up before NBA training camps opened again for the 2019-2020 season - and, of course, before star LeBron would have to return to his day job playing for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Speaking at the NBA All-Star Weekend in Charlotte, LeBron told a cheering crowd: "I'm gonna be in Space Jam 2. We start filming that this summer."

Earlier this year, Nike revealed the uniforms that the Tune Squad and Monstars will be wearing for the sequel, along with the new LeBron 17 sneakers.

No one knows for sure how similar the storyline will be to the original, released in 1996 and starring Michael Jordan, but the fact we've now got uniforms for the two teams to marvel at we can assume there's going to be a basketball match... spoiler alert.

'The King' won't be the only LA Lakers' star in the film as he's set to be joined by Anthony Davis whilst fellow basketball players Damian Lillard, Klay Thompson, Chris Paul and Diana Taurasi will also star.

Don Cheadle is another confirmed for the cast but there's no word on what role he'll play in the movie with the man who played War Machine saying, "No, I'm not playing myself. I actually can't tell you what I'm playing."
