While everyone is talking about the Space Jam Sequel coming out this July, Joe Pytka, director of Space Jam, still has a problem with the way the original movie ended. Michael Jordan was supposed to return to his baseball career at the end of the movie and hit a walk-off homer but the editing team ended up cutting the scene. Pytka said with that scene being cut, the end of the movie didn’t follow the original storyline about Michael Jordan’s baseball career.
On that note, Pytka also commented on the upcoming sequel and is not thrilled about it as well. Back in 2016 he said “I think it’s ridiculous to try and make a different movie out of it. I can’t see it. I can’t imagine how it could be what that film was. Not that Space Jam is a great movie, but it had something that touched that period of time because of who those athletes were and it doesn’t exist anymore.”
We have to agree with him that space jam wasn’t a great movie. It was an ICONIC movie!
And on that note… let’s throw it back with one catchy theme song….
