Lebron James has accidentally (or officially) revealed the name to the sequel to perhaps one of the most culturally relevant films to ever come from the nineties, Space Jam.
Just this past Thursday, the NBA superstar and official male lead for the famed sequel, posted a photo on Instagram wearing a hat that sported the logo, “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” which of course could only mean one thing. After Lebron revealed the news to fans via Instagram, the official Twitter page for the film reposted Lebron’s post, confirming the exciting news.
