Considering this, the hypothesis of a “Space Jam 3” should not be excluded, going back to modifying the protagonist. Another sportsman but perhaps related to another activity. Could you go from basketball to wrestling?

Director Malcolm D. Lee looks to the future in an interview granted to Entertainment Weekly. A sequel to his film would not be excluded, on the contrary: “A lot depends on how positively the fans respond. I think the bar was set very high with Michael Jordan in the first film. Now, likewise, with LeBron James. Sport is transcended. Who else could find space in that universe. Never say never, even if a particularly good script would be needed, which is not repetitive compared to what has already been proposed. At the same time, however, it should gather its spirit and continue on that path ”.

“Dwayne Johnson would certainly be an interesting choice. It would be something different. Maybe he could go back to wrestling. It would be interesting”.
An idea that is not an announcement, far from it. At present there is nothing but the public has already begun to respond positively to this possibility on the web. This, together with the excellent numbers recorded by this second chapter, could whet the producers’ imagination. It would be an ideal adventure for The Rock, which is certainly not afraid to try its hand at the comparison with great classics. Just think of what has been done with the two sequel films to “Jumanji”.
