Writer and director Ben Mekler took to Twitter to share the screenshot of the synopsis which reads, “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, LeBron’s son, Sonequa Martin-Green as Savannah James and fellow NBA and WNBA players Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, Kyle Kuzma, Diana Taurasi, Nneka Ogwumike and Chiney Ogwumike. Malcolm D. Lee is helming the sequel while Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, Duncan Henderson, Maverick Carter and LeBron James are serving as producers.
Space Jam: A New Legacy is currently scheduled to premiere July 16, 2021.
