Space Jam live read in Toronto in February
Hologram Bugs Bunny has not been confirmed to attend.
As part of the TIFF Next Wave Film Festival in Toronto, a Space Jam live read will be held on Feb. 13 featuring “an exciting lineup of talent from the sports and entertainment worlds.” No official names have been announced yet, though TIFF promises some reveals will come via social media.
TIFF members can purchase tickets now, while high school students can reserve free tickets to the festival, and all non-TIFF members can begin buying on Jan. 27. TIFF Next Wave is billed as a festival for young film lovers, and is looking to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the beloved live-action and animated film, which famously starred Michael Jordan and Bill Murray.
The live read also coincides with the NBA All-Star Game being played in Toronto on Feb. 14, which surely means some of the league’s biggest stars (including LeBron James) will be in town to possibly lend their presence to the performance.
As for a sequel starring the Looney Tunes and possibly James, the basketball star teased last August that he hopes a new film in the franchise can soon become a reality.
