LeBron James & Bugs Bunny Team Up in ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ Trailer
It’s LeBron James’ chance to do his dance at the Space Jam, & the first trailer for his much-anticipated sequel; Space Jam: A New Legacy previews a looney adventure both familiar & unique from the 1996 classic starring Michael Jordan.
Like in the original, LeBron James plays a fictionalized version of himself who teams up with Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety Bird, Lola Bunny and the rest of the tune squad for the biggest game in basketball history. This time, they’re taking on the Goon Squad…. Not the Monstars. A souped-up team of professional players assembled by Don Cheadle’s baddie.
A New Legacy hails from director Ryan D. Lee and producer Ryan Coogler (Black Panther) and co-stars Sonequa Martin-Green as LeBron’s onscreen wife. “I am really excited for [fans] to see how it’s been modernized, because I was really, really touched by that,” she told ET. “It’ll be something that can be a bridge for the next generation to enjoy.”
