Wave your hands in the air if you feel fine We're gonna take it into overtime Welcome to the Space Jam!
Sooo anyone else get nostalgic and jump out their seats when they hear Quad City DJ’s Space Jam? Ok, well, I do! I was a sophomore in HS when Space Jam originally came out in 1996. I spent hours making mix tapes for our basketball team warm ups and Space Jam was a crowd favorite! I may not have been a high scorer but I could throw down some tunes for warm up, LOL. Similar to the 1996 version, this film will be both animated and live action and I’m excited to hear the soundtrack as well, which is credited to Kris Bowers.
We are Laker fans here in this house, and I personally look forward to seeing “King” LeBron James and the Tunes Squad take on the Goon Squad. You’ll see and hear notable Black voices like Don Cheadle, Zendaya (Lola Bunny), Khris Davis, Sonequa Martin-Green, and newcomer Cedric Joe who plays Dom.
What you need to know is that Space Jam: A New Legacy will be playing in theaters and same day release for free to HBO Max subscribers, July 16, 2021. I’ll have more fun things coming your way as we get closer to the film and I can’t wait!
Here’s the Space Jam: A New Legacy Trailer
About Space Jam: A New Legacy
NBA champion and global icon LeBron James goes on an epic adventure alongside timeless Tune Bugs Bunny with the animated/live-action event “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” from director Malcolm D. Lee and an innovative filmmaking team including Ryan Coogler and Maverick Carter. This transformational journey is a manic mashup of two worlds that reveals just how far some parents will go to connect with their kids.
When LeBron and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I., LeBron must get them home safe by leading Bugs, Lola Bunny and the whole gang of notoriously undisciplined Looney Tunes 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. It’s Tunes versus Goons in the highest-stakes challenge of his life, that will redefine LeBron’s bond with his son and shine a light on the power of being yourself. The ready-for-action Tunes destroy convention, supercharge their unique talents and surprise even “King” James by playing the game their own way.
