Space Jam On Netflix

In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

If you weren’t yet ready to relive your childhood and satisfy all your nostalgic cravings (other than snacks this time around), well then please prepare yourself ASAP for what you’re about to hear. Our very favorite streaming service, Netflix has announced that they will be adding some seriously nostalgic throwbacks for viewers to enjoy! And not only will they be adding some of the most classic ‘90s movies of all times, but they will also be adding documentaries, special stand-ups, and even new seasons of our beloved original shows. So now are you ready for what’s to come? 


Michael Jordan at the 1996 premiere of Space Jam



The most exciting news, however, is that Space Jam is now available on Netflix, and has been since March 1st! The unique and iconic film starring NBA star Michael Jordan together with the adorable animated Looney Tunes characters was a significant part of our childhood, and until today, the 1996 movie will always still be dear to our hearts. And believe it or not, rumor also has it that there’s going to be a sequel to be released in 2021 starring LeBron James, making it the perfect time to refresh your mind and heart with the original version.  Although we surely won’t refuse a sequel, to be honest though, no one will ever be able to outdo Jordan, who really made us all believe we can fly. 


But do take note, Netflix is adding much more than just Space Jam, and will be offering countless other classic favorites, such as the original Peter Pan with Julia Roberts and the late Robin Williams. Other notable mentions include  A Series of Unfortunate Events and Sleepover, the 2004 teen comedy with no shortage of stars that had roles in the movie before they had their big breaks such as Evan Peters and Steve Carell. Ready to Netflix and chill now more than ever?
