Character Posters: “Space Jam: A New Legacy”

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled a new series of character posters from “Space Jam: A New Legacy” which shows off LeBron James and the roster of Looney Tunes characters playing in the film.

The story sees James is having a hard time relating to his son Dom who is much more interested in creating games than playing them. Those tech skills draw the attention of a CGI humanoid named Al G Rhythm who pulls him and LeBron into the “Warner 3000 entertainment ‘Server-verse’” in an effort to steal some of LeBron’s followers on social media.

The only way to get Dom back, escape this intellectual property black hole, and stop this AI villain is with a game of basketball as LeBron rounds up the Looney Tunes characters to defeat a new team of villains called The Goon Squad.

Malcolm D. Lee directs and Ryan Coogler produces the project which also stars Sonequa Martin-Green and Don Cheadle along with players like Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Kyle Kuzma, Chris Paul, Diana Taurasi and Chiney and Nneka Ogwumike.

“Space Jam: A New Legacy” will arrive in cinemas and on HBO Max on July 16th.
