Warner Bros. has dropped the first trailer for the highly-anticipated second Space Jam film, Space Jam: A New Legacy.
The film stars LeBron James with Don Cheadle, Khris Davis, Sonequa Martin-Green, Cedric Joe, Jeff Bergman and Eric Bauza. Malcolm D. Lee directed the film from a script by Juel Taylor, Tony Rettenmaier, Keenan Coogler and Terence Nance. Ryan Coogler is among the film’s producers.
The official description: This transformational journey is a manic mashup 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 ready-for-action Tunes destroy convention, supercharge their unique talents and surprise even “King” James by playing the game their own way.
LeBron James, Maverick Carter and Duncan Henderson also produce and the film’s executive producers are Sev Ohanian, Zinzi Coogler, Allison Abbate, Jesse Ehrman, Jamal Henderson, Spencer Beighley, Justin Lin, Terence Nance and Ivan Reitman.
