In recent days the great Don Cheadle had revealed that in Space Jam 2: A New Legacy will also appear Michael Jordan, the famous NBA champion and the protagonist-symbol of the original film released in 1996.
A few minutes ago, however, the Bleeding Cool site with a scoop has revealed the way Michael Jordan will return in Space Jam 2: it is useless to specify that, if you do not want to ruin the surprise, you should immediately return to the Everyeye home page and look for another article to read, given that in the following paragraphs you will encounter heavy spoilers about Space Jam 2.
Are you still there? If so, here are the statements from Bleeding Cool:
“Space Jam 2 has, unsurprisingly, a similar texture and texture to the original. But instead of Michael Jordan, the protagonist will be basketball player LeBron James, who plays a fictionalized version of himself alongside Don Cheadle, Khris Davis, Sonequa Martin-Green and Cedric Joe in live-action roles. At one point the members of the Tune Squad insist that they can get Michael Jordan back on the team, and in one scene Michael Jordan runs out onto the pitch, ready to play the game of his life … only this is not the famous basketball player Michael Jordan, but the actor Michael B. Jordan!“
The site continues:
“How did this scene come about? Well, Michael B. Jordan was working at the Warners studios, where Space Jam 2 was also filmed. He went to the set often, as he knows director Michael D Lee, even if only to meet LeBron James. Eventually this scene was written, and here’s how Michael Jordan will appear in Space Jam 2. Except it won’t be the Michael Jordan you expected …“
In short, if the Bleeding Cool scoop turns out to be true Don Cheadle will have several explanations to give to fans. In the meantime we remind you that Space Jam 2 will arrive in Italian cinemas in July.
