After weeks of online speculation, the basketball player-turned-actor spoke on a potential follow-up to the 1996 film starring Michael Jordan.

LeBron James really does want Space Jam 2 to become a reality.

When Today asked him for his thoughts on a sequel to the 1996 film starring Michael Jordan -- as well as Looney Tunes characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Tweety Bird -- James said, after weeks of rumors, "We hope so. We're definitely missing Bugs and Daffy and Tasmanian Devil and every last one of them, so hopefully we can do some great things."

Speculation for the sequel began when the NBA superstar and his company Spring Hill Entertainment signed a deal with Warner Bros. Entertainment spanning all areas of content creation. Since Warner Bros. originally released Space Jam, the idea of a follow-up began to circulate online.

After shooting comedic scenes in Amy Schumer's Trainwreck, James wants to continue making movies. "It's a passion of mine. Everything I do, I have a passion about it. If we could continue it, I know I don't have to dribble a basketball and fly through the air to do those type of things."
