Excited for Space Jam 2?
More specifically, excited for Space Jam 2 merchandise?

Relevant here: How many people want to have these jerseys? The point is the merchandising.
Yes, this is supposed to be a fun kids movie. Many people responding to the aesthetics might not be in the target demographic. Michael Jordan’s uniform in the original “Space Jam” definitely benefits from nostalgia. This one probably will, too – maybe even immediately from people who loved the first movie.
But I can’t escape this out-of-context tweet also posted last night:
Man that was BOGUS AS HELL MAN!!!!! Cmon man. 🤦🏾♂️
