Last night, it was more or less confirmed that Space Jam 2 is happening at some point in the near future after news broke that LeBron James had signed on with Warner Bros in order to follow in Michael Jordan’s footsteps.
If you add that to the fact that Warner last month filed trademarks for the sequel, it pretty much spells it out for us.

And with the news quickly flooding websites around the world, social media was awash with the news – and reacted in fine form, as usual.
