Space Jam original director slams sequel: ‘Boring mess, LeBron James ain’t Michael Jordan’

Joe also felt Space Jam: A New Legacy lacked the personal connection to LeBron’s life that his film had to Michael’s, with the latter becoming a baseball player.

The director argued that his movie had a better supporting cast too with the likes of Bill Murray.

Aside from finding the sequel’s soundtrack “insignificant”, Joe’s biggest problem with A New Legacy was Bugs Bunny’s “heartbreaking” role.

He concluded that Space Jam: A New Legacy “looked like one of those fluffy dolls you buy at an airport gift shop to bring your kid when your business trip has taken too long.”
