Space Jam 2, also known as Space Jam: A New Legacy, is on its way to the theaters this July and we’ve got the figurines you’ll want to pre-order for your retail store now! Toy sales often follow media trends, and this is one movie you will want to prepare for ahead of time. Here’s why!
Why Space Jam Brings Back Fond Memories
Feeling a bit nostalgic when you hear about Space Jam? That might be because the original movie was Warner Bros.’ first feature film that opened in 1996. Who could resist a chance to see beloved Looney Tunes characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig combined with professional basketball players like Michael Jordan? It was the perfect balance of animation where characters can be drawn to perform literally any stunt perfectly or horribly wrong for slapstick humor elements and real-life legends and role models for relatability. Plus, Michael Jordan was every kid’s sport-industry hero!
The Secret to Space Jam's Popularity With Families
Cut to 2021, and you will see that same hilarious combination in family-friendly entertainment featuring the basketball heroes of today’s youth coupled with comic relief supplied by animated characters in Space Jam 2! What will make it a success is there is something for everyone in this film. Sports fans are greatly anticipating seeing their favorite basketball players in action. Parents will reminisce about their Looney Tunes-watching days on Saturday morning during their childhood. Young children will laugh at the silly antics of the animated characters.
Then, there are the grandparents who will be thrilled to be able to watch something with their children and grandchildren other than full-animation cartoons. It doesn’t get any better than extreme athletic feats mixed with daring cartoon plots. The three generations can even choose to watch it on HBO Max in the comfort of their homes or on the big screen in theaters!
