For a while there, we had our doubts about the mysterious Space Jam 2 sequel. Besides LeBron James being the main (and seemingly solo) act, we knew practically nothing about the upcoming film.
Thankfully, us Space Jam fanatics finally got a few more clues. According to Shams Charania, Davis, Damian Lillard and Klay Thompson will join LeBron James in the Space Jam 2 cast with guests like WNBA stars Diana Taurasi, Nneka Ogwumike and Chiney Ogwumike are also slated for roles.

Looks like LeBron has got a full roster for the film — and funny that it should include his newly acquired teammate, Anthony Davis.
The film will begin production this summer and is scheduled to be released in July 2021. It’s been a long-rumored project that has been literally years in the making, with numerous starts and stops throughout production. The project was first announced in 2014 before going through a number of changes and ultimately finalizing its producers last year.
It will be interesting to see how it comes together.
