Space Jam: A New Legacy (also known as Space Jam 2) is an upcoming American live-action/animated sports comedy film directed by Malcolm D. Lee, from a screenplay by Juel Taylor, Tony Rettenmaier, Keenan Coogler, and Terence Nance. The film is a sequel to Space Jam (1996) and stars basketball player LeBron James (who also acts as a producer), as well as Don Cheadle, Khris Davis, Sonequa Martin-Green, and Cedric Joe. The film also features the Looney Tunes characters such as Bugs Bunny (who, like with Michael Jordan in the original film, is credited alongside James), Daffy Duck, Marvin the Martian, Pepé Le Pew, Tweety (all of whom voiced by Eric Bauza), Sylvester, Foghorn Leghorn (both of whom voiced by Jeff Bergman), Porky Pig (as voiced by Bob Bergen), and Lola Bunny (as voiced by Kath Soucie).
Characters like Batman and King Kong will be doing a cameo. Not to mention the Goon Squad’s powered-up roster of pros. Enter Space Jam: A New Legacy. James’ well-received supporting roles and production empire aside, the film is a pricey test of both the athlete’s crossover appeal as a leading man and a changing industry model: It’s set to be one of the first event movies to welcome audiences back to theaters this summer, while its box office receipts battle the draw of a simultaneous July 16 streaming release on HBO Max.
