I haven’t seen the original Space Jam so I am presenting this new trailer without comment. Well almost, as the Droogs from A Clockwork Orange appear too, courtside, plus it looks fun (LeBron and the cartoon bunny, not the Droogs).
That’s it! That’s the article!
Oh wait here’s the synopsis and the actual trailer, which is stuffed full of recognisable and semi-recognisable faces from film-and-Looney-Tunes-land (or scroll down for character posters):
When LeBron James 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.
James stars alongside Oscar nominee Don Cheadle, Khris Davis, Sonequa Martin-Green, Cedric Joe, Jeff Bergman and Eric Bauza. And… Zendaya as Lola Bunny! (I have no idea who Lola Bunny is but Twitter was going wild over the news earlier.) The film is directed by Malcolm D Lee.
Space Jam: A New Legacy will be released in the UK on 16th July 2021 by Warner Bros. Pictures
