In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the iconic Space Jam film, Jordan Brand today presents a short sequel, dubbed “Defy the Monstars.” The short is a 90-second film imagining a fresh take on the classic story to inspire a new generation to defy expectations.

NBA athletes Blake Griffin and Jimmy Butler star in the new short, as they prepare the next generation of ballers to defend the planet once again from the Monstars.

In the film, the Monstars can be seen rocking the Air Jordan XI, while the Jordan family is now equipped with a secret tool of their own, the Air Jordan XXXI.

Jordan Brand is also honoring the special anniversary of Space Jam with a coinciding collection of sneakers and apparel.
