Y'all — it feels like it's been forever since we learned that LeBron James was slated to star in a sequel/reboot/thingy of the beloved basketball classic Space Jam.
Well, I come bearing excellent news, friends! The wait is finally over, because we received our first trailer for the film this weekend! And y'all, it looks so freakin' fun! Check it out:
The film will follow one Mr. LeBron James, who appears to be in a bit of a tough spot as a dad* at the moment.
After losing his son on "the wrong floor," he comes face-to-face with Al-G Rhythm, an evil computer algorithm (played by Don FREAKIN' Cheadle), who, of course, challenges him to a basketball game. Because Space Jam.
However, there is a twist on the original format in that this time — when our basketball star first enters Tune World — he's turned into a Tune himself!
So LeBron is forced to put a team together, relying on those gosh-darn Looney Tunes for their knowledge, their insight, and their sick skillz.
Also, throughout the trailer, we get some positively WACKY cameos, including the Iron Giant:
And King Kong:
And Pennywise, I guess??? So scary! No thank you!!!
So be sure to catch this colorful, cameo-filled, pure nostalgia trip when it hits HBO Max and theaters July 16!
