It's been 20 years since the release of Space Jam in the United States of America. The film did not hit big screens in the UK until March 27, 1997 but was a hit from the off Stateside from November 14, 1996. 

A lot has changed in the 20 years since Michael Jordan teamed up with Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes crew to down the Monstars, who had stolen the basketball skill of some of the 1990s' biggest stars. 

Jordan was only a four-time champion at the time, and while he is still the biggest name in the world of basketball, he now holds six championship rings, is the owner of the Charlotte Hornets and a billionaire. 

But one thing has not changed, the Monstars are not happy with their loss. And Brand Jordan yesterday teased their return on Twitter as the company celebrates 20 years of 'Space Jam'.

A statement from the Nike-owned brand read: “We’re really excited to actually tell this story about how the Monstars are coming back, and they’re coming back with a vengeance. 

"They’re really pissed that they lost the game, and they’re here to wreak havoc on the game of basketball. Lots of propaganda going on and trying to have everyone to comply with this idea of their soulless game. 

"This marketing campaign that’ll go global, the story’s really going to unfold around that, and then you’ll have to wait to see what happens on how this new basketballer that’s here today actually rises up to defy the odds of getting after the Monstars.”
