Warner Bros. has unveiled the very first trailer for Space Jam A New Legacy, the long-awaited sequel to the 1996 fan-favourite Space Jam.
NBA champion and global icon LeBron James goes on an epic adventure alongside timeless Tune Bugs Bunny with director Malcolm D. Lee and an innovative filmmaking team including Ryan Coogler and Maverick Carter.
The synopsis reads:
When LeBron and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I., LeBron must get them home safe by leading Bugs, Lola Bunny and the whole gang of notoriously undisciplined Looney Tunes to victory over the A.I.’s digitized champions on the court: a powered-up roster of professional basketball stars as you’ve never seen them before.
It’s Tunes versus Goons in the highest-stakes challenge of his life, that will redefine LeBron’s bond with his son and shine a light on the power of being yourself.
The ready-for-action Tunes destroy convention, supercharge their unique talents and surprise even “King” James by playing the game their own way.
James stars alongside Oscar nominee Don Cheadle (the “Avengers” films, “Hotel Rwanda”), Khris Davis (“Judas and the Black Messiah,” TV’s “Atlanta”), Sonequa Martin-Green (TV’s “The Walking Dead,” “Star Trek: Discovery”), newcomer Cedric Joe, Jeff Bergman (“Looney Tunes Cartoons”) and Eric Bauza (“Looney Tunes Cartoons”).
Space Jam A New Legacy is slated to premiere on 16 July 2021 in cinemas and HBO Max.
