Details about Space Jam 2 continue to roll out, and now we have a first look at the epic practice court that LeBron James and company will be looking to keep their on-court skills sharp while filming. NBA superfan Jimmy Goldstein’s house in Los Angeles will be the home of the Space Jam 2 workout court and it will definitely rival the legendary “Jordan Dome.”
The Space Jam 2 court has epic views of Los Angeles and will certainly be home to some incredible pick-up games during filming.
The professional basketball stars who will appear in the film include Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson, new Lakers big man and LeBron teammate Anthony Davis, Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard, and WNBA players Diana Taurasi and Nneka and Chiney Ogwumike.

The sequel from the 1996 film has hit a snag with several NBA stars turning down the role. Giannis Antentokoumpo, James Harden, Kevin Durant, and several others have already reportedly declined to be a part of it. The filming of the movie — which will reportedly heavily feature the Nike brand — is set to begin this summer but have not yet found a secondary lead.
The sequel is more focused on a family arc, while the original film’s plot was centered around Michael Jordan saving the Looney Tunes. While Ball may be a little too old for the secondary role, James may not have to look far to fill the secondary role. His son, Lebron James Jr., is only a freshman but has already made a name for himself on the AAU circuit.
The younger James has already taken an unofficial visit to Duke, despite being only 14 years old. A father-son duo in a movie that highlights a family arc could make a lot of money in the box office. Space Jam 2 is not set to be released until the summer of 2021 which gives the younger James an opportunity to make a name for himself on the recruiting circuit.
