Unbelievably, Space Jam is turning 20 years old this year, and to celebrate this anniversary milestone for the classic animation-live action hybrid flick, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release a new Blu-ray Combo Pack in steelbook packaging on November 15.
Space Jam stars six-time NBA champion Michael Jordan and WB’s classic Looney Tunes gang in a dimension-bending sports showdown. The action unfolds as Jordan is kidnapped from his live-action world by Bugs Bunny to foil a gang of space creatures by acting as a can’t-lose ringer in an epic basketball game to save the cartoon characters from a nefarious kidnapping scheme.
The film also starred Wayne Knight, Theresa Randle and the voice of Danny DeVito, with appearances by Bill Murray, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing. Produced by Ivan Reitman and directed by Joe Pytka, Space Jam won an Annie Award for Best Individual Achievement: Technical Achievement, and a Grammy for the original song “I Believe I Can Fly” by R. Kelly.
In addition to the iconic film, the Blu-ray Combo Pack (SRP $19.98) includes commentary from director Joe Pytka, Bugs Bunny (voiced by Billy West) and Daffy Duck (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker); Jammin featurette with Bugs and Jordan, and music videos including Seal’s cover of “Fly Like an Eagle” and the Monstars anthem “Hit ‘Em High,” performed by ’90s hip hop luminaries B-Real, Busta Rhymes, Coolio, LL Cool J and Method Man.
