Space Jam: A New Legacy Plot

We all know that Michael Jordan has been retired long ago from the NBA. On being asked who would be a perfect fit to lead the sequel of Space Jam, he replied “Blake Griffin.” Tony Bancroft, a well-known animator for the films like “The Beauty and the Beast,” The Lion King,” collaborates with Disney and will also animate “Space Jam: A New Legacy”. The making is under progress, and we need not worry about the animations. 

Michael Jordan’s “Space Jam” is the highest grossed basketball film in history ever. The shooting of the upcoming movie completed in September 2019, the animation is yet to complete. Will LeBron James do justice to the role played by Michael Jordan???

Well, we need to wait for 2021 to have an eye feast.
