November 15th marks the 20th anniversary of the movie “Space Jam” that featured the Looney Tunes and Michael Jordan.
Jordan and Bugs Bunny had a history before the movie as they starred in commercials for the Air Jordan VII.
Monday evening, Jordan Brand’s Twitter account sent out a cryptic tweet while changing their name to the Monstars, which were the notorious alien villains from “Space Jam.”
The Monstars wound up taking over the bodies of Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Shawn Bradley, Larry Johnson and Muggsy Bogues.
Jordan Brand then doubled down Tuesday morning by posting a short video stating “And you thought this was over… #MonstarsBack -The Monstars.”
This could be nothing more than celebrating the anniversary of the movie that made over $230 million at the box office. It also could be a promotion for the Jordan XI “Space Jams” that will be released December 10, 2016.
The current day Michael Jordan, LeBron James just recently said that he does want to be in a sequal to “Space Jam” according to hollywoodreporter.com.
James said, after weeks of rumors, “We hope so. We’re definitely missing Bugs and Daffy and Tasmanian Devil and every last one of them, so hopefully we can do some great things.”
