LeBron James' Space Jam 2 scores 2021 release date

Additionally, Warner Bros. has set a July 16, 2021 release date for Space Jam 2, the sequel to the 1996 sci-fi animated original that will feature basketball star LeBron James.

In addition to revealing some important info, the tweet also promises the return of Bugs Bunny and Lola Bunny.

Warner Bros. announces new release dates for three films including that Godzilla vs King Kong moves up nine weeks from a May 22, 2020 release date to March 13, 2020.

It's official - Space Jam 2 is going to be hitting screens in 2021.

You likely already knew that a "Space Jam" sequel was on the way, and if you didn't.well, now you know. "LeBron releasing the Space Jam 2 date right before he begins heroically carrying the Lakers to the playoffs is next-level marketing", one Twitter user wrote.

For a bit of context as to why Lang wants to make Space Jam 2 so badly, Lang himself worked on the original Space Jam video game back in the 90s. Now, the horror film will compete with Limited Partners (Paramount), Yesterday (Universal Studios), Fox's untitled James Mangold Drama and Entertainment Studios' 47 Meters Down: Uncaged in the final week of June this year.

"Black Panther" director Ryan Coogler is set to produce the film and Terence Nance of "Random Acts of Flyness" will serve as director. The cult classic starred Michael Jordan and the wily cast of characters of the Looney Tunes, including the iconic Bugs Bunny. "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.
