Same sport, new era. For its return to the screens, 24 years after the first film led by Michael Jordan, the Space Jam universe goes to 2.0 by plunging the “King” LeBron James in a virtual world where he will have to team up with Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes in a basketball game against the Goon Squad, to save his son kidnapped by Don Cheadle, king of the “Server World”.
Between basketball film, Ready Player One and Ralph 2.0, Space Jam – new era summons many pop references, from Game of Thrones to Flintstones through the Iron Giant or Yogi Bear. As for the Toons, they leave traditional 2D animation to switch to computer graphics. The kickoff will be on July 14, 2021.
