Space Jam: A New Legacy star Don Cheadle has confirmed that Michael Jordan will make an appearance in the highly anticipated Space Jam sequel.
Speaking recently to Access Hollywood, Cheadle, who is playing a rogue artificial intelligence known as AI-G Rhythm in Space Jam 2, confirmed that Jordan will appear in some sort of capacity in the movie, though he didn't share how big of a role the Chicago Bulls legend will play.
"Michael Jordan is in the movie," Cheadle revealed. "But not in the way you'd expect it."
Space Jam: A New Legacy is set to be released in theaters and on HBO Max on July 16, 2021, and is a sequel to the original 1996 movie starring Michael Jordan. However, this time, LeBron James is stepping in to play ball with Bugs Bunny and co. James previously revealed his Tune Squad uniform, which sports the iconic Looney Tunes concentric circles, stretching over both the jersey and the shorts.
In addition to James, Cheadle, and now seemingly Jordan, Space Jam 2 stars Star Trek: Discovery's Sonequa Martin-Green as Kamiyah James, LeBron's wife, together with the rest of their family unit, including Cedric Joe as Dom James, their youngest son, Ceyair J Wright as Darius James, their eldest son, and Harper Leigh Alexander as Xosha James, their daughter.
The voice cast features Jeff Bergman as Bugs Bunny, Sylvester, and Foghorn Leghorn, as well as Eric Bauza as Daffy Duck and Marvin the Martian, Bob Bergen as Porky Pig and Tweety, Jim Cummings as Tasmanian Devil, and Gabriel Inglesias as Speedy Gonzales. Zendaya will voice Lola Bunny, the Tune Squad star who will initially live in the world of Wonder Woman in the cameo-laden movie.
