The new animated and live-action film is directed by Malcom D. Lee and comes 25 years after the original. In A New Legacy, LeBron James and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue AI and must lead the Tune Squad to victory in order to return home safely.
The highly-anticipated film gained media attention after revealing that it would be changing Lola Bunny’s outfit in favor of a more sporty look. In addition, popular character Pepe Le Pew was axed from the sequel because of recent controversy surrounding rape culture and the character’s portrayal of consent.
