A Space Jam Sequel

Joshua Jallah, Staff Writer

After the release of the 1996 hit Space Jjam, it was inevitable a sequel to this film was inan order. If you are unfamiliar with this Wwarner Bbros. pProject, it revolves around NBA all star Micheal Jordan teaming up with a group of cartoon characters to win their freedom from a group of monstrous aliens. 

The sequel will follow Lakers superstar Lebron James. He will have to team up with Bugs Bunny to recruit the Llooney Ttunes and rescue his son from a hyper-realistic A.I(Don Ccheadle). This original movie is one of the top 10 movies on Nnetflix.This is likely because it creatively brings together two different sides of life:; bBasketball ball and cartoons into a comedy for older and younger viewers alike. 

While this new year has brought many changes, so will the sequel. The new director Malcolm D. Lee said that some characters were changed prior to filming due to their offensive nature. This included Llola Bbunny, whose design was altered to match a less suggestive take on women. Many opposed these changes to the beloved characters, and many found them acceptable. Only time will tell if the changes will hold up to the standards of the viewers. Stay tuned for the release of Space Jjam: A Nnew Llegacy on HBO Max, June 16.
