Is Michael Jordan in Space Jam 2?

Is Michael Jordan in Space Jam 2? Yes, at least according to Don Cheadle. Speaking with Access Hollywood, Cheadle said, "Michael Jordan is in the movie, but not in the way you'd expect it."

The soundtrack for Space Jame: A New Legacy is here and Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard is featured in the lineup.

ESPN’s Tory Barron highlighted Lillard’s unique role as a dual performer for the project.

Dame D.O.L.L.A., who plays Chronos in the film, is the only actor (and athlete) to also appear on the album with the original song “About That Time” featuring G-Eazy, P-Lo and White Dave. While news that Lillard has a substantial role in the film broke in May, it wasn’t until June 17 that Dame Time took to Twitter to share he would also be on the album.

It comes as no surprise to anyone who is familiar with Lillard’s music that the hoops star would do both. Lillard has earned respect in the hip-hop world as a socially conscious lyricist as Dame D.O.L.L.A., which stands for Different On Levels the Lord Allows. He has recorded songs with some of the biggest names in the music industry including Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz and Jamie Foxx. He also performed with Wayne during NBA All-Star weekend in 2020. Last year in the NBA playoffs bubble, Lillard spent time laying down tracks when he was not occupied with basketball, turning part of his suite at the Walt Disney World Resorts into a mini recording studio.

The complete soundtrack for Space Jam: A New Legacy is currently available on Spotify and YouTube. Space Jam: A New Legacy is set to release on July 16. The movie is going to be available in theaters and on HBO Max.

‘Space Jam’ Started as a Series of Popular TV Commercials

NBA and Looney Tunes fans alike were surprised to learn Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny would share the screen in 1996’s Space Jam. Yet, the movie did indeed see the basketball icon and animated “wabbit” team up on the court. But more bizarre than the movie itself is how Space Jam actually started as a television commercial.

Released on Nov. 15, 1996, Space Jam was clearly Warner Bros. big holiday season movie. With Jordan and, well, Bunny sharing top billing on the poster, the film must have seemed like an instant blockbuster. While the movie turned a profit globally, it wasn’t exactly a smash hit. Based on a reported $80 million production budget, Space Jam only earned $90 million domestically, according to Box Office Mojo.

Over the years, however, Space Jam has developed more of a fan base. After all, the legacies of both Jordan — who practiced for the NBA even on the movie’s set — and the Looney Tunes continue to endure. As the kids who first saw the movie in theaters have grown, its reputation has become more complicated. But many younger fans might not realize how Jordan first crossed paths with Bugs Bunny.

Jordan and Bugs Bunny first faced off against alien adversaries on the court in a pair of Nike commercials. These early 1990s ads — titled “Hare Jordan” and “Aerospace Jordan” — even include Jordan and Bugs playing against a team of aliens led by Marvin the Martian. This detail, of course, differs from the movie’s intergalactic villains, the Monstars. Both the commercials as well as Space Jam were directed by Joe Pytka.

“I think the producers weren’t that adept at mixing animation and live-action,” Pytka told Entertainment Weekly in 2016. “I know that Robert Zemeckis had told one of the producers that [Who Framed Roger Rabbit] was the most difficult thing he’d ever done and he would never do anything like that again. So I don’t think they realized how complicated the process was.”

For many years, rumors about Space Jam 2 circulated. Indeed, such a project nearly came together many times since the 1996 original hit theaters. Yet, after 25 years, a sequel is finally on the way. Space Jam: A New Legacy will be released both in theaters and on HBO Max on July 16, 2021.

The sequel sees a different NBA superstar, LeBron James, join forces with the Looney Tunes. Moreover, its title seems to refer to cyberspace rather than the cosmic locale where the first movie’s big game took place. Don Cheadle plays the main villain, Al-G Rhythm, and the movie promises lots of Warner Bros. references.

It’s Tunes versus Goons in the highest-stakes challenge of his life, that will redefine LeBron’s bond with his son and shine a light on the power of being yourself. The ready-for-action Tunes destroy convention, supercharge their unique talents and surprise even ‘King’ James by playing the game their own way.

Jonas has also composed the official soundtrack of the movie called Mercy.

Space Jam: A New Legacy Xbox One Review – Not Worth the Time

But Why Tho? A Geek Community 09 July, 2021 - 02:35pm

Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game is a free-to-play tie-in video game to the movie Space Jam: A New Legacy. It is developed by Digital Eclipse and published by Xbox. The most interesting thing about Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game are some of the details surrounding it. Firstly, the game has a staggered release, releasing on July 1st for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members while releasing more widely on July 15th. 

Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game is available now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S  for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members with a full release on July 15.

Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game is free, but it still does very little to justify players spending any time with it at all…For fans of beat-em-ups, there are plenty of better options available that are not much more expensive, especially if players have Xbox Game Pass already. For Space Jam fans, there is so little of the characters or personality of the movie in the game that it does not seem as though it would justify the time investment.
