With only a few months left until the arrival of the long-in-the-works family-friendly sequel, Warner Bros. has unveiled a new set of character posters from Space Jam: A New Legacy showing off its roster of heroes from the Looney Tunes world and star LeBron James!
Produced by Black Panther‘s Ryan Coogler, the film centers on James and his young son Dom (Cedric Joe) — who dreams of becoming a video game developer — as they find themselves trapped in a virtual space by a rogue AI named Al-G Rhythm (Don Cheadle). In order to get back home safely, he must lead Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Lola Bunny and the rest of the undisciplined Looney Tunes to victory over Al-G’s digitized players on the court.
Alongside James, the film will feature an impressive roster of professional talent including Portland Trailblazers’ Damian Lillard, New Orleans Pelicans’ Anthony Davis, Golden State Warriors’ Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, Los Angeles Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma, Phoenix Suns’ Chris Paul, Phoenix Mercury’s Diana Taurasi and Los Angeles Sparks’ siblings Chiney and Nneka Ogwumike. The cast for the film also includes Star Trek: Discovery and The Walking Dead alum Sonequa Martin-Green as James’ wife Kamiyah.
Space Jam: A New Legacy will arrive in theaters and on HBO Max on July 16.
