Welcome to the Match of the Century! Basketball champion and global icon, LeBron James, goes on an epic, timeless adventure with Gaşca Tune and Bugs Bunny, with the live-action film “Space Jam: A New Legacy”, directed by Malcolm D. Lee and a team innovative filmmakers, including Ryan Coogler and Maverick Carter. This journey of transformation takes place at the intersection of two worlds that reveal how far some parents will go to connect with their children. When LeBron and his young son, Dom, are trapped in a digital space by a rogue AI (Artificial Intelligence), LeBron must bring them home safely, leading Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny and the entire Looney Tunes gang , well known as undisciplined, to win against digitized AI champions on the field: a significant number of basketball professionals, as you have never seen before. The Tunes versus Goons match is the biggest stake of his life, which will redefine LeBron’s connection with his son and illuminate the power of being himself. The action-ready Tunes gang breaks conventions, overloads their unique talents and even catches “King” James playing the game in their own way.
James plays alongside Oscar-nominated actor Don Cheadle (“Avengers”, “Hotel Rwanda”), Khris Davis (“Judas and the Black Messiah”, “Atlanta” TV), Sonequa Martin-Green (“The Walking Dead”, “Star Trek: Discovery”), newcomer Cedric Joe, Jeff Bergman (“Looney Tunes Cartoons”), Eric Bauza (“Looney Tunes Cartoons”) and Zendaya (future “Dune”, “Malcolm & Marie”).
Lee (“Girls Trip”, “Night School”) directs from a screenplay written by Juel Taylor and Tony Rettenmaier and Keenan Coogler and Terence Nance. The film’s producers are Ryan Coogler, LeBron James, Maverick Carter and Duncan Henderson, and the executive producers are Sev Ohanian, Zinzi Coogler, Allison Abbate, Jesse Ehrman, Jamal Henderson, Spencer Beighley, Justin Lin, Terence Nance and Ivan Reitman.
