Few movies have stood the test of time as well as Space Jam. The iconic film’s pop culture relevance only seems to grow, and it remains one of the most beloved movies across an entire generation.

The 1996 blockbuster features Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes characters as they attempt to defeat space aliens in a game of basketball. The combination of basketball’s best player and iconic cartoon characters, like Bugs Bunny, led to a cultural phenomenon and a $230 million box office hit.

Despite turning 20 years old, the film is as popular today as ever. Space Jam will be returning to select theaters to celebrate the milestone, and it’s rumored that a Space Jam 2 starring LeBron James is in the works. The pop culture resurgence of Space Jam connects with young adults, who are still nostalgic about the movie and the Looney Tunes characters they grew up with. Now, a whole new generation will get to experience Space Jam.

Jordan Brand will also be releasing Space Jam products to commemorate the occasion. The anniversary is 11/15, and Eastbay will have tons of Space Jam gear to celebrate the moment. Additionally, the highly anticipated Retro 11 ‘Space Jam’ will drop on 12/10 and the AJ XXXI ‘Space Jam’ is scheduled to release on 12/3.
