The film is the long-gestating followup to the 1996 hit Space Jam, which saw NBA legend Michael Jordan team up with the Looney Tunes to win a basketball game. This time around, James steps into the starring role, but the movie is about more than just sports. Previously, James mentioned Space Jam: A New Legacy is a family film revolving around the relationship between James and his son Dom. He's described it as a "parenting movie" with regard to the narrative.
First look at the highly anticipated sequel Space Jam 2 has arrived, and it certainly looks colorful. Officially titled Space Jam: A New Legacy, the follow-up stars LeBron James as a heightened version of himself who, along with his son Dom (Khris Davis), becomes trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I. played by Don Cheadle. It’s up to James to get them home safe by leading Bugs, Lola Bunny and the Toon Squad gang to victory over the A.I.’s digitized champions on the court: a powered-up roster of professional basketball stars as you’ve never seen them before.
