Warner Brothers has not yet committed to developing a sequel, but we at TORO are all for it. Space Jam takes us back to a time when kids' movies were good and R. Kelly wasn't a sexual predator.
The original 1996 version starring NBA legend Michael Jordan is a seminal classic. In the film, Jordan must help the Looney Toons defeat a gang of evil aliens in a basketball game, or else be enslaved. (The Man's always trying to keep a brother down!) The film also stars Bill Murray, Charles Barkley, and that guy who played Newman on Seinfeld.
For a child growing up in the 1990s, Space Jam was truly the perfect combination of cartoons, sports, and self-reflexive, postmodern, intertextual, meta irony. We're serious. Just watch below.
