The NBA superstar has inked a deal with the franchise, which will involve television, film, and digital content, and now tons of fans are speculating that the rumored Space Jam 2 idea with him could be on the way.
Chairman Kevin Tsujihara said of the deal:
“LeBron James has one of the most powerful, well-known brands in the world and we are excited to be in business with him and his partner, Maverick Carter, and SpringHill Entertainment,” said Warner Bros. chairman Kevin Tsujihara in a statement. “The combination of LeBron’s global media presence and Warner Bros.’ unmatched production and distribution expertise is a big win for fans everywhere.”

He also added:
Now… the new trademarks don’t cover moves (Warner Bros. already owns trademark for film) but could LeBron/Space Jam merch be coming? — Alex Weprin (@alexweprin) July 22, 2015
Even though LeBron has denied any involvement in a sequel to the original film, Warner Bros. has reportedly filed from some new Space Jam-related trademarks this past month.
How would you feel about a Space Jam 2 with LeBron coming to fruition?
