ESPN has shared a star-studded second trailer for its upcoming Michael Jordan documentary, The Last Dance. This new preview shows the breath, depth and power of the project, as a laundry list of luminaries ranging from Barack Obama to Phil Jackson, Scottie Pippen, Kobe Bryant and Justin Timberlake are spotted sitting for interviews.

First previewed in December of 2018, the highly anticipated ten-part docuseries follows Jordan’s Chicago Bulls through their 1997-98 season, en route to MJ’s 6th and final NBA Championship. A camera crew was given exclusive access to the team over the course of the season, and their unseen footage mixed with multiple interviews aims to show the scope of the squad’s impact on the world of popular culture in the late ’90s — when Jordan was at the very peak of his popularity.

‘The Last Dance’ is set to begin airing in June 2020. All ten episodes are directed by Jason Hehir, who most recently worked on HBO‘s ‘Andre the Giant’ documentary. Mike Tollin is the producer, and the effort is a joint production from ESPN and Netflix.

Check out the trailer — with music from Hudson Mohawke — above, and when you’re done get a look at Jordan Brand‘s new Air Jordan 6 “Washed Denim,” a classic hoop shoe with a bold new construction.
