With the long-awaited sequel to 1996’s Space Jam now in post-production ahead of its planned release in the summer of 2021, the official synopsis for Space Jam: A New Legacy has made its way online and suggests that LeBron James and Bugs Bunny are set for a wild ride through the Warner Bros. multiverse.
The synopsis for A New Legacy was shared on Twitter by Final Space writer Ben Mekler, who revealed that he’d received it via a test screening email and described the plot as “certifiably bananas”. See for yourself here:
“During a trip to the Warner Bros. studio, NBA Superstar LeBron James and his son accidently get trapped within a world that contains all of Warner Bros.’ stories and characters, under the control of a malfunctioning, all-powerful force named Al G (played by Don Cheadle). With the help of Bugs Bunny, LeBron must navigate through a never-before-imagined world filled with iconic movie scenes and characters as they re-assemble the Looney Tunes to rescue his lost son. Now to get back home, Lebron and the Tunes have to unravel Al G’s mysterious plan and win an epic basketball game against digital gamified super-versions of the NBA and WNBA’s biggest stars as the entire world watches.”
