Are you pumped for Space Jam: A New Legacy? The sequel to the iconic 1996 film stars LeBron James and is penned by Black Panther writer/director Ryan Coogler. And according to a new plot synopsis leaked by Ben Mekler, we're in for an interesting ride:
“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). 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.”
Joining Cheadle and James will be Ceyair J. Wright as Bronny James and Sonequa Martin-Green as Lebron's wife, Savannah. A confirmed mix of NBA and WNBA players are also joining the fun, including Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, Kyle Kuzma, Diana Taurasi, Nneka Ogwumike, and Chiney Ogwumike.
The movie has already been filmed and is due to release next July, but, of course, that could change with studio schedules in flux.
