Thanks to an Entertainment Weekly cover story on Space Jam: A New Legacy, LeBron James has shared a sneak peek of the upcoming film. Executive produced by King James and director Ryan Coogler, the plot was also discussed as part of the interview with EW.
According to the magazine, the likes of Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, Draymond Green, Kyle Kuzma, Diana Taurasi, Nneka Ogwumike and Chiney Ogwumike will join LBJ and the Tune Squad as they play basketball.
The plot involves Bron Bron and his onscreen son, wanting to escape a virtual reality by winning a game of ball against rogue AI.
He told EW:
“In my younger days, part of my thinking was ‘”Space Jam” was so good, how can I top this?’ There’s always going to be conversations about LeBron trying to do everything Michael [did]. But I’ve gotten older, and you know who you are. You know what you stand for.”
