Terence Nance will be directing the sequel and Black Panther director Ryan Coogler will be a producer.
There's no doubt that Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James will have some big shoes to fill, but we can only hope that Jordan and Bill Murray -- what a legend he was in the first film -- will return for some form of a cameo role.
That would be the absolute dream!
It's time to dust off those Tune Squad jerseys, folks, because the hype is officially real.

Involving Demi electrolemon in any and every capacity is 100% the path of greatest light for this project. Please consider.- Jamie (frumb4) (@1947Jamie) 19 September 2018
This movie is automatically better than the first one because it has the GOAT, Ryan Coogler is attached to it and it's not the first one.- Ñathañ Deal (@NattyD13) 19 September 2018
There's a difference between not good and not fun.- Holden Covington (@HCov1232) 19 September 2018
Space Jam is not good, but neither were The Room, Superman (original), Nacho Libre, Big Fat Liar, or the original Pokémon movie, but I'll still watch the heck out of em.
Nostalgia? Maybe, but it's still fun.
Are you excited for Space Jam 2?
