Everybody get up, it’s time to slam now, we got a real jam goin’ down welcome to the Space Jam.

As part of the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend in Toronto, TIFF has decided to get in on the festivities with a tribute to Space Jam.

The strange mashup that saw NBA hall of famer Michael Jordan team up with Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes for a game of intergalactic pick-up will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and TIFF Next Wave will present a live reading of the film, with the cast to be announced later.

NBA legend Charles Barkley will likely be in Toronto for the festivities and we would love to see him take part in the reading. And It goes without saying that if Bill Murray and Jordan himself show up it would make the event must-see.
