  • Latest ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ trailer: LeBron James, Tune Squad playing for high stakes

As the July 16 release of “Space Jam: A New Legacy” draws nearer, a new trailer has dropped to reveal more about the long-awaited sequel.

And the stakes are high for the Tune Squad and LeBron James.

For James, he has to win a battle against the elite, intergalactic Goon Squad organized by Al-G Rhythm, an evil computer algorithm played by Don Cheadle. If James loses, he won’t be able to save his son, who was kidnapped in order to set up this matchup.

Meanwhile, the Looney Tunes that team up to help James — including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Lola Bunny and many more — have their lives on the line. If they lose, they will be deleted from the “serververse.”

That was the big reveal of the sequel’s second trailer, which you can see below.

It sure seems like this battle is going to be an intense one, and those that enjoyed the original movie starring Michael Jordan are definitely looking forward to seeing the Tune Squad battle on the court again, especially with some modern animation styles.

Additionally, basketball fans will be looking forward to seeing the NBA and WNBA stars making appearances in cameo and voice acting roles. Obviously, James is in the movie, but others who will appear include Kyrie Irving, Chris Paul, Draymond Green, Kyle Kuzma, Chiney Ogwumike, Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Diana Taurasi and Nneka Ogwumike.

And, of course, Ernie Johnson Jr. will be appearing as a play-by-play voice in the film.

Needless to say, this should be a lot of fun. July 16 can’t get here soon enough.
