OK, everyone—all together now: “Yes!”

According to TIFF.net, NBA All-Star Weekend will feature a live reading of Space Jam 20 years after the classic movie was released.

It will be part of the TIFF Next Wave Film Festival in Toronto.

Here’s what we have so far:

In celebration of Space Jam’s 20th anniversary and the NBA All-Star Game in Toronto on February 14, TIFF Next Wave presents a live read of this Looney Tunes/​​live-action mashup with an exciting lineup of talent from the sports and entertainment worlds. Stay "tooned" via social media for cast announcements!

If NBA players get involved, this has "Monstar"-level potential.
