Twenty-five years after Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes gang bested an alien invasion on the court, Space Jam: A New Legacy is set to open in theaters on July 16th, and streaming on HBO Max. The updated, Tron-like film will star Los Angeles Lakers great LeBron James, as well as a rogue computer played by Don Cheadle, who then forces James to team with (who else?) the Looney Tunes to compete against the A.I.’s all-star Goon Squad. The film also boasts an impressive roster of fellow basketball players, including Anthony Davis, Chris Paul, Damian Lillard, Diana Taurasi and Nneka Ogwumike.

LeBron James animated in Space Jam 2

LeBron James and the Looney Tunes crew take on an evil A.I. and its villainous basketball team in Space Jam: A New Legacy, a reboot of the beloved 1997 film starring Michael Jordan.

Unlike the alien invasion of the original, Space Jam: A New Legacy boasts a Tron-like plot where the Los Angeles Lakers great and his son are abducted by a rogue computer (played by Don Cheadle), who then forces James to team with Bugs Bunny and company and compete against the A.I.’s all-star Goon Squad.

As we’ve seen so far, the Looney Tunes aren’t the only cartoon and fictional characters to inhabit this digital world: The Flintstones, the Iron Giant, King Kong, Scooby-Doo, and Yogi Bear are among the many pop culture touchstones that make a Ready Player One-like appearance.
