Everybody get up it's time to slam now. We got a real jam goin' down. Welcome to the Space Jam. Here's your chance do your dance at the Space Jam! That is, if you're able to head to Toronto next month.

As part of the TIFF Next Wave Film Festival, the event will bring its guests and members a live reading of the 1996 classic in honor of Space Jam's 20th anniversary and the NBA All-Star Game. According to its announcement, the special event will bring a number of famous names to help bring Space Jam back to life.

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!

Although most of us likely won't be able to make it to Toronto, I'm thinking there will be some kind of recording of it for the rest of the world to enjoy. With the promise of a cast drawing from the worlds of sports and entertainment, this has Internet fame written all over it.

This live-action Looney Tunes reading of 'Space Jam' will take place on Saturday February 13. To buy tickets visit the TIFF website.
