Stakes Are High In ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ Trailer

Warner Bros. has unveiled the new trailer for Space Jam: A New Legacy. The footage seems to show that there’s more to the story than just basketball.

LeBron James serves as the film’s protagonist in which his son gets sucked into the “Warner 3000 Server-verse.” The film is full of Easter eggs and characters from other intellectual properties and even shows Don Cheadle as one of the villains called Al-G Rhythm.

When LeBron 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 seems as a bittersweet moment as Laker Nation lost the icon and legend Kobe Bryant, the team as a whole knew they were playing for more than just themselves.

“Ever since the tragedy, all we wanted to do was do it for him. We didn’t let him down. It would’ve been great to do it last game in his jerseys, but it made us come out even more aggressive, even more powerful on both ends of the floor to make sure we closed it out tonight. I know he’s looking down on us proud of us. I know Vanessa’s proud of us, the organization’s proud of us. It means a lot to us. It’s a tough moment, man. He was a big brother to all of us.”
