It has been 20 years since Michael Jordan joined the cast of Looney Tunes to battle the Monstars on the court in Space Jam, and Jordan is celebrating the anniversary with a new Air Jordan Holiday clothing line.
The announcement begins with via a Tweet that revealed the new holiday clothing line. That tweet was followed by a strange, transmission-like Tweet and then another that heralded the return of the Monstars.

It’s not entirely clear what all of this is supposed to mean. The clothing line is a thing in and of itself, and it partners with the 20th anniversary Space Jam steelbook combo pack and the film’s return to theaters.
The rest is up to a little more speculation. The second and third tweets are most likely just meant to build the 20th-anniversary nostalgia for Space Jam so that fans will go out and buy some t-shirts and a copy of the Blu-ray. However, those more optimistic about the Space Jam franchise’s future may suggest that it's teasing a sequel.
See the Air Jordan Holiday Line in the gallery below.
In Space Jam, Swackhammer (Danny DeVito), an evil alien theme park owner, needs a new attraction at Moron Mountain. When his gang, the Nerdlucks, heads to Earth to kidnap Bugs Bunny (Billy West) and the Looney Tunes, Bugs challenges them to a basketball game to determine their fate. The aliens agree, but they steal the powers of NBA basketball players, including Larry Bird (Larry Bird) and Charles Barkley (Charles Barkley) -- so Bugs gets some help from superstar Michael Jordan (Michael Jordan).
Originally released 1996, Space Jam was directed by Joe Pytka.
