The 1996 cult classic "Space Jam" is getting a sequel 25 years after it premiered, and this time around, it's LeBron James rounding up together a "Looney Tunes" basketball team. "Space Jam: A New Legacy" will simultaneously hit the theaters and HBO Max on July 16, and you can actually get the streaming service for free and safely watch the Tune Squad play their hearts out in the comfort of your home.
"Space Jam: A New Legacy"
If you have been waiting close to a quarter of a century for the next Looney Tunes-basketball crossover bonanza, looking forward to LA Lakers' LeBron James acting chops, or you're just a fan of the cartoons, you don't have to wait for that much longer.
"Space Jam: A New Legacy" will follow LeBron's character as he and The Looney Tunes gang team up to rescue James' son from an evil AI program called Al-G Rhythm played by Done Cheadle, TechRadar said.
Space Jam: A New Legacy's central story about a father and son cuts through the film's excess, giving it a heart and a message that encourages staying true to oneself in the pursuit of passion. Our review: https://t.co/tEMRBTxHvc pic.twitter.com/ouoeK0eENo— IGN (@IGN) July 15, 2021
And just like Michael Jordan in the original "Space Jam" film, James and the Looney Tunes have to go up against another superpowered basketball team. The Tune Squad needs to defeat the Goon Squad and help James' family return from the Serververse to the real world.
The Tune Squad will have the classic Looney Tune pals such as Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny, Proxy Pig, the Tazmanian Devil and Daffy Duck. Granny Emma Webster even made it to the team.
Tweety Bird, Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner and Yosemite Sam are also part of the team, and you get to see almost every Warner Bros. character in the film at one point or another. Even the Flintstones made a cameo!
