Space Jam was a very important movie for many young sports fans because, well, it involved Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes, which is a pretty tremendous combination for children in the 90s.

In the early 2000s, there might hot have been anyone more influential in the sports realm for teens of that same generation than Tony Hawk. Skateboarding had exploded onto the scene, Hawk was the face of the sport, and his video games were among the best, most popular games on the market.

Hawk recently launched his newest mobile game titled “Skate Jam,” and, on Sunday, revealed that title was initially meant for a project in 2003 to, effectively, create something of a Space Jam sequel featuring Hawk and the Looney Tunes skateboarding. Hawk tweeted out what appears to be a drawing from storyboard construction and said the project was a full go until Looney Tunes: Back In Action bombed out.
