25 years after Michael Jordan hit a buzzer-beating slam dunk to lift the Tune Squad over the Monstars in Space Jam, the long-awaited sequel is finally set to premiere this Friday, with LeBron James taking his talents to Hollywood in Space Jam: A New Legacy.
Space Jam: A New Legacy will be a spiritual successor to the OG Space Jam, as the two are set in the same universe, but James has noted in interviews that A New Legacy will serve more as a standalone film rather than a direct sequel. Like its predecessor, an all-star lineup of basketball players will join James and the Looney Tunes in the cast, including Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Diana Taurasi, Klay Thompson and more.
In Canada, Space Jam: A New Legacy will be released simultaneously in movie theatres (where open) and through premium video-on-demand services for $24.99, similar to other simultaneous-release movies from Warner Bros. like Wonder Woman 1984 and Godzilla vs. Kong.

After NBA superstar LeBron James and his son Dom are kidnapped by a rogue A.I. program (named Al-G Rhythm), LeBron's only way to return home is to lead the undisciplined Looney Tunes in a winner-take-all basketball game against the Goon Squad – a team of super-powered digitized basketball stars assembled by Rhythm to humiliate King James.
