Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Michael Jor­dan, Bugs Bunny and friends are re­turn­ing to the court, and the­aters, to mark the 20th an­niver­sary of “Space Jam.”

The 1996 bas­ket­ball-themed ad­ven­ture, which com­bined the real life Jor­dan with an­i­mated Looney Tunes char­ac­ters, will be back on screens in select the­aters for two days next month. Fathom Events and Warner Bros. say the screen­ings will take place on Sun­day, Nov. 13, and Wed­nes­day, Nov. 16.

Bas­ket­ball greats Larry Bird, Charles Barkley and Pa­trick Ewing also ap­pear in the film, as does Bill Murray, who joins with Jor­dan to de­feat a team of aliens.

Michael Jor­dan is seen with car­toon char­ac­ter Bugs Bunny dur­ing a news con­fer­ence in 1995 for “Space Jam.” Fathom Events and Waner Bros. say the film that com­bines live ac­tion and an­i­ma­tion will re­turn to the­aters on Nov. 13 to mark the 20th an­niver­sary of its re­lease.
