Actor Don Cheadle has confirmed a rumor. Indeed, Michael Jordan will be featured in Space Jam: A New Legacy.
For years, fans have hoped Jordan would star in a Space Jam sequel. But 25 years later, it turns out he’s not getting that lead role; this role is for LeBron James. Fortunately, we now know that Jordan is in the sequel.
Don Cheadle spoke to Yahoo! Entertainment and managed to reveal that Jordan is in the movie. “Michael Jordan is in the movie, but not the way you’d expect”.
Obviously he didn’t want to tell Jordan in any way Space Jam: a new legacy sit down. It promises to be a nice surprise for fans of the franchise; I hope this can be kept until the film is released.
Space Jam: a new legacy revolves around LeBron James and his son. The latter finds himself in a digital space when a fleeting AI manages to catch him. Along with Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes, LeBron must try to beat a team of dangerous basketball players. It’s the tunes against the Goons in this movie that will forever change LeBron’s bond with his son.
Exhibited in the United States from July 14.
