Teaser for “Space Jam 2”: This is what Michael Jordan’s successor in the cult film sequel looks like

Instead of Michael Jordan, this time LeBron James teamed up with Bugs Bunny and Co. on the basketball field in “Space Jam 2: A New Legacy”. In a first teaser clip, the NBA superstar now presents the new jersey of the Tune Squad.

Yes, “Space Jam 2” is actually coming! After the sequel to the semi-animated sports comedy from 1996 was very quiet again, there is now the clearest sign of life in the form of a short preview clip that producer Maverick Carter presented on Twitter.

It doesn’t offer actual excerpts from the film yet, but at least we get a first look at the film look of the main actor and NBA star LeBron James, who poses in the new colorful jersey of the so-called Tune Squad (the old one in the first part was still mostly white, see news picture above):

The Tune Squad is a basketball team made up of the Looney Tunes. 25 years after their victory over mean aliens in “Space Jam”, the popular cartoon characters in “Space Jam 2: A New Legacy” are confronted with a (as yet unknown) new threat that apparently needs to be averted again on the basketball court .

Since “Space Jam” hero Michael Jordan is now approaching 60, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Co. get help from LeBron James this time. Otherwise, however, the mix of real film and animation known from the first part should be used again.

With Marvel and “Walking Dead” stars

In front of the camera in “Space Jam 2” James not only gets company from other professional basketball players, but also from Hollywood celebrities. While “The Walking Dead” and “Star Trek: Discovery” star Sonequa Martin-Green will play James ‘film woman, Avengers member Don Cheadle will be seen in an as yet undisclosed role.

Behind the scenes, “Black Panther” maker Ryan Coogler has helped as producer and co-writer. After several changes of direction, “Girls Trip” and “Scary Movie 5” director Malcolm D. Lee is now responsible for the production. We shouldn’t see the result until next summer fmovies.

“Space Jam 2: A New Legacy” starts in theaters on July 15, 2021.
