The premiere of Space Jam: A New Legacy (in theaters and HBO Max) is approaching. The film will feature renowned sports figures and prestigious actors Don Cheadle and Zendaya, who will voice Lola Bunny among the characters that will team up with LeBron James.
The goal of the NBA player and his team will be to save his son. Unlike the first Space Jam movie, starring Michael Jordan, in which the goal was to save the animated world. However, LeBron James will have to return to that universe and face several of his colleagues in the NBA.
He is joined by several of the most representative Space Jam: A New Legacy movie of the Looney Tunes, such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, the Tazmania Demon, among others. They will put together a team to face another with several of the best players in the NBA today. Although it seems like a story similar to that of the first movie, there are differences.
As on the first occasion, the “King” of the NBA will not be the only one from that league to participate. LeBron James is joined by figures such as Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis, Klay Thompson and Chris Paul. They will be joined by fellow WNBA star Diana Taurasi.
Although the main role will be played by Los Angeles Lakers player LeBron James, part of the charm of this film is seeing other players on the scene. This happened, at the time, with the movie starring Jordan. In that first edition of Space Jam, stars like Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Shaw Bradley, Larry Bird, among others, appeared.
The sports side is joined by actors such as Don Cheadle, who will play the antagonist, playing the role of Al-G Rhythm; Sonequa Martin-Green, in the role of Kamiyah; LeBron James’s wife in the movie, and Cedric Joe, playing James’s son, Dom. Different voices will join this establishment. One of the most prominent is Zendaya’s.
