Warner Bros. Pictures has released a brand new clip for the highly-anticipated Space Jam: A New Legacy, teasing yet another universe that is set to be explored in the upcoming sequel. The Space Jam 2 clip, which you can check out below, takes NBA superstar LeBron James and Bugs Bunny to DC World where they transformed into the heroic duo of Batman and Robin. The film is currently slated to arrive in theaters and on HBO Max on Friday, July 16.
Welcome to the Jam! Basketball champion and global icon LeBron James goes on an epic adventure alongside timeless Tune Bugs Bunny with the animated/live-action event Space Jam: A New Legacy, from director Malcolm D. Lee and an innovative filmmaking team including Ryan Coogler and Maverick Carter. This transformational journey is a manic mash-up of two worlds that reveals just how far some parents will go to connect with their kids.
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 Space Jam sequel will now be led by LeBron James as he takes over the mantle of becoming the new Captain of the Tune Squad from Michael Jordan. It also stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Cedric Joe, Don Cheadle, Ceyair J. Wright, Harper Leigh Alexander, and Zendaya along with Candi Milo, Jim Cummings, Bob Bergen, Gabriel Iglesias, Jeff Bergman, Eric Bauza, and more.
Malcolm D. Lee is directing Space Jam: A New Legacy from a screenplay written by Juel Taylor, Tony Rettenmaier, Keenan Coogler, and Terence Nance. It is produced by James, Ryan Coogler, Maverick Carter, and Duncan Henderson, with Sev Ohanian, Zinzi Coogler, Allison Abbate, Jesse Ehrman, Jamal Henderson, Spencer Beighley, Justin Lin, Nance, and Ivan Reitman set as executive producers.
