Similar to Michael Jordan, LeBron James is gearing up for the release of a new Space Jam film after winning his fourth NBA title. On Sunday, writer Ben Mekler tweeted the synopsis to the upcoming Space Jam sequel, which involves LeBron and his son being trapped in a world that features the Warner Bros. characters.
“During a trip to the Warner Bros. studio, NBA Superstar LeBron James and his son accidentally get trapped within a world that contains all of Warner Bros.’ stories and characters, under the control of a malfunctioning, all-powerful force named Al G (played by Don Cheadle),” the synopsis reads. “With the help of Bugs Bunny, LeBron must navigate through a never-before-imagined world filled with iconic movie scenes and characters as they re-assemble the Looney Tunes to rescue his lost son. Now to get back home, LeBron and the Tunes have to unravel Al G’s mysterious plan and win an epic basketball game against digital gamified super-versions of the NBA and WNBA’s biggest stars as the entire world watches.”
Directed by Malcolm D. Lee and produced by Ryan Coogler, Duncan Henderson, Maverick Carter, and LeBron James, Space Jam: A New Legacy is tentatively scheduled to be released on July 16, 2021.
