Everybody get up, it’s time to slam now!

The official title of the Space Jam sequel has finally been revealed by NBA superstar LeBron James on Thursday. 

The Lakers player posted a video of himself Thursday wearing a hat with the logo of Space Jam: A New Legacy, which is the title of the Looney Tunes sequel. The film’s official Twitter page reposted the vid later that day. 

The sequel to the 1996 animated film starred NBS stars Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, Shawn Bradley, and Muggsy Bogues alongside Bugs Bunny and his Looney Tunes gang.

Space Jam: A New Legacy will be directed by Night School helmer Malcolm D. Lee. Back in February 2019, Warner Bros. announced the film’s release date as July 16, 2021.
