Think you know all there is to know about Space Jam, do ya? Well, I’m about to tell you something that will shock you to your core and make you feel both looney and er… tuney.
Prepare yourself. There is one thing you simply must know about Space Jam.
The Space Jam website is still active.
Yep, I’m talking about the original Space Jam website from 1996. The same website that was set up to promote the movie way back when dial-up, AOL, and chat rooms were a thing.
It looks exactly as you’d expect a ’90s site to look – because it simply hasn’t changed!
Insane, right? Yet also pretty awesome.
The Space Jam website is filled with content about the movie, from cast bios and basketball terminology, to games, production notes and even a list of US radio stations playing ‘Fly Like An Eagle’ – a Seal track featured on the Space Jam soundtrack album. Only, those radio stations no longer play that track… and might not even exist anymore!
At present, the Space Jam site is archived, so currently stands as a little echo of the past. How long it remains this way is anyone’s guess, but you should most certainly go check it out.
In short: If you want to revisit 1996, then you’d best head on over to the Space Jam site as soon as you can. You never know when the Jam will end. And no one really wants the Jam to end.
I am a big fan of Space Jam and I can’t wait for the long-awaited sequel to hit cinema screens. Yep, Space Jam 2 is coming, it’s just taken a while to get off the ground.
In the meantime, if you want to revisit the original, Space Jam is available on home video. The Space Jam Blu-ray can be purchased from Amazon.
And speaking of the original Space Jam, did you know that Ghostbusters director, Ivan Reitman was one of the producers of Space Jam? Well, he was!
So as well as featuring an appearance by original GB actor, Bill Murray, Space Jam also shares Reitman!
I just thought you’d like to know.
