Entertainment Weekly has shared the first footage and details of the Space Jam sequel. This time the main star will be basketball player LeBron James. In the story, the multiple NBA champion, along with his son, finds himself in the virtual world of Warner Bros. Not only the heroes of Looney Tunes, but also other characters of the studio will take part in the game. The main focus will be on the relationship between father and son. The boy is fond of programming, which is why the artificial intelligence performed by the House of Cheadle draws attention to him, and kidnaps him into the virtual world. The heroes will be able to free themselves only if they can defeat his team in a basketball match. Space Jam: The New Generation is slated to premiere on July 15th.
The first Space Jam movie was released in 1996. The main role was then played by basketball player Michael Jordan. The film was positively received by critics and viewers, gaining over $ 230 million at the box office with a budget of $ 80 million.
