“I’m gonna be honest completely with you guys — when I found out about the project, I was like it’s ‘Space Jam’! It’s a movie that I grew up watching. People in the movie that I idolize. I was like absolutely, I gotta do it. There’s no way I can turn down ‘Space Jam’!

Given the names and clear care involved, we’re optimistic.
‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ opens July 16 2021.
