Now, he's hoping to make a second movie starring himself and the Looney Tunes. What would the other cast be like? Who would be the evil characters who really had good intentions? It will be interesting to see if a Space Jam 2 came to theaters and its certain that the box office would go through the roof in sales. Perhaps an appearance from MJ himself would gross even more of a profit?

Watching this movie in 2016 is nostalgic, it brings back so many memories of where you were when you first saw it, who you were with and what your favorite alien was. Hopefully, kids today will be able to enjoy the same magic as many of us did when we were children. #spacejam #michaeljordan
