Warner Bros. are limbering up for the imminent release of Space Jam: A New Legacy into cinemas this July, and it promises to be the largest cross-pollination of IP since Ready Player One. Further proof of this can be found in the latest clip for the 25 years in the making sequel, which features LeBron James (Trainwreck) and Bugs Bunny being sucked into the world of The Matrix to help Granny and Speedy Gonzales. Take a look at the clip below….
“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.”
Space Jam: A New Legacy is directed by Malcolm D. Lee (Night School) with LeBron James producing and starring alongside Don Cheadle (Avengers: Endgame), Sonequa Martin-Green (Star Trek: Discovery) and basketball stars Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, Diana Taurasi, Klay Thompson, Nneka Ogwumike, and Chiney Ogwumike. The film is also set to feature the voice talents of Zendaya, Jeff Bergman, Eric Bauza, Kath Soucie, Bob Bergen, Fred Tatasciore, and Jim Cummings.
Space Jam: A New Legacy is set for release on July 16th 2021.
