Basketball and Warner Bros’ Looney Tunes fans got a second glimpse of the LeBron James-led Space Jam: A New Legacy in a new trailer released today.
The sequel to the 1996 original that starred Chicago Bulls legend, Michael Jordan will feature James in the leading role alongside the iconic Looney Tunes characters. Actor Don Cheadle, actresses Zendaya and Sonequa Martin-Green, as well as Lakers teammate Anthony Davis, Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard, among other NBA players are also part of the cast.
In the trailer, James teams up with the likes of Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny, Tasmanian Devil and other Looney Tunes characters in a high-stakes basketball game to save his son from a simulation cartoon world. In addition to the Looney Tunes characters, there will be a plethora of blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameos throughout the film from iconic characters across different Warner Brothers properties.
