From this photo, LeBron will probably team up with Bugs Bunny and the Tune Squad, who were also Michael Jordan’s teammates in the original Space Jam movie in 1996.

Terence Nance, the director of HBO’s Random Acts of Flyness, will direct the sequel. Ryan Coogler, the director of Black Panther, and Justin Lin, the director of Fast Five, will produce the film.

Production is set to begin in 2019.

We still don’t know if Michael Jordan will have a cameo on the sequel.
