According to the leaked synopsis of Space Jam 2: A New Legacy, the successor to the iconic original Space Jam, we’re in for a nostalgic ride through decades of Warner Brothers’ movies and tv shows with LeBron James fearlessly leading the way.
Directed by Malcolm D. Lee and produced by Ryan Coogler, LeBron James, Duncan Henderson, and Maverick Carter, we’ll be seeing LeBron James, Don Cheadle, and Sonequa Martin-Green star in this film set to release on July 16, 2021.
Be prepared for similarities drawing back to the first Space Jam with Michael Jordan. In this rendition, LeBron James and his son find themselves stuck in the vault. They end up separating, embarking James on a trip of a lifetime until he receives unexpected help from Bugs Bunny and the full Looney Tunes family.
The journey takes the newfound team through a variety of basketball games against the world’s best NBA and WNBA players in order to find James’ son lost in the vault. Rumor has it there will be other iconic characters including Jim Carrey’s The Mask, Pennywise the Clown, and characters from Harry Potter making an appearance.

Space Jam: A New Legacy portrays a similar theme to Disney’s 2018’s Wreck It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet, where their characters journey through the world of Disney in pursuit of freedom from the engulfing classic animated films.
We can already imagine how the plot will unfold but we’re excited to see it live in action. Are you just as excited as we are for Space Jam 2?! Let us know what themes you expect to see!
