We received a copy of the movie in order to do this review. All opinions are my own.
I had to admit that I remember when Space Jam came out. I was in high school and an avid basketball player who also loved Looney Tunes, so I was immediately drawn to this movie. Space Jam stars Michael Jordan along with several of the Looney Toons characters that you know and love as well as many other great actors and sports figures from the 90’s. My kids hadn’t seen the movie before (#parentfail), so when I had the opportunity to get the 20th Anniversary Edition of Space Jam from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and watch it with my kids, I couldn’t pass it up. They have watched it few times since then because they love the cartoons and the sports. Space Jam is a great movie that your whole family will enjoy and it came out today with a cool packaging that will make it a great gift for Christmas.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the beloved classic, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release “Space Jam,” on November 15 on Blu-ray Combo Pack in new steelbook packaging.
Six-time NBA champion Michael Jordan and Looney Tunes linchpin Bugs Bunny star in the family comedy classic that introduced a whole new dimension of entertainment. The film also stars Wayne Knight, Theresa Randle and the voice of Danny DeVito. Bill Murray, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, and Patrick Ewing appear as themselves. “Space Jam” was produced by Ivan Reitman and directed by Joe Pytka.
The world’s greatest legends collide in a future universe with Jordan as a live-action hero entering a spectacular animated world. Captured by Bugs Bunny to foil a ghastly gang of space creatures, Jordan must play the basketball game of his life to save the beloved cartoon heroes from a hideous kidnapping scheme.
“Space Jam” received an Annie Award for Best Individual Achievement: Technical Achievement and a Grammy®Award for Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or for Television (1997).
Fans can also own “Space Jam” via purchase from digital retailers.
