Space Jam 2: A New Legacy has released its first trailer this weekend and it is wild. The trailer released just two days after the studio teased the release earlier in the week. The teaser featured most of the nostalgic characters from the first Space Jam. For instance, Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny, and Daffy Duck. It also showed the rivalry between the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote which has been running since before time can tell. The poster for the movie was also revealed to the media just one day before the trailer’s big reveal. It showcased the basketball star LeBron James and Bugs Bunny standing side by side.
The official synopsis and poster for Space Jam: A New Legacy:
“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.”
What can we expect from the movie:
After watching the trailer completely, we can confirm that the movie will be filled with action, comedy, and thrill. The trailer shows the movie introducing all the characters that Warner Bros. has under its belt and they will have their cameos. Such as King Kong and Pennywise along with other nods to Game of Thrones and Mad Max: Fury Road. The trailer suggests that the movie may be packed with Easter eggs for its audience to pick out from. We also witness LeBron James in his toon version in the trailer as well as scenes with the Looney Tunes in their realistic version of themselves on the screen.
The amazing cast:
Space Jam 2: A New Legacy also has an impressive cast to go along with their animated characters. Other than James and the classic Tune Squad that we all know and love, the cast of the sequel to 1996’s Space Jam includes Sonequa Martin-Green, Don Cheadle, Xosha Roquemore, and newcomer Cedric Joe. Space Jam: A New Legacy is directed by Malcolm D. Lee. He directs from a script penned by Juel Taylor & Tony Rettenmaier & Keenan Coogler & Terence Nance.
