Space Jam: A New Legacy

Space Jam: A New Legacy (formerly known as Space Jam 2) is a 2021 upcoming American live-action/animated sports comedy film directed by Malcolm D. Lee. It will be a standalone sequel to the 1996 film Space Jam and stars NBA player LeBron James, as well as Don Cheadle and Sonequa Martin-Green. The film also features the Looney Tunes characters such as Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny, and Daffy Duck. James also acts as a producer alongside Ryan Coogler

Talks for a Space Jam sequel began after the release of the first film but eventually fell through due to Michael Jordan’s refusal to return. Several possible spin-offs, focusing on other athletes, including Jeff Gordon, Tiger Woods, and Tony Hawk, were also discussed but never came to fruition. A LeBron James-led sequel was officially announced in 2014, and after several years of languishing, filming began under Terence Nance in June 2019 around Los Angeles. After a few weeks into filming, Nance left the project; Lee was hired to replace him in July 2019. Production wrapped in September 2019.

Space Jam: A New Legacy is scheduled to be released in the United States on July 16, 2021, by Warner Bros. Pictures. It will mark the first theatrically released film to feature the Looney Tunes characters since the release of Looney Tunes: Back in Action in November 2003.

Space Jam: A New Legacy (also known as Space Jam 2) is an upcoming American live-action/animated sports comedy film directed by Malcolm D. Lee, from a screenplay by Juel Taylor, Tony Rettenmaier, Keenan Coogler, and Terence Nance. Serving as a sequel to Space Jam (1996), it will mark the first theatrically-released film to feature the Looney Tunes characters since Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003), and like the previous hybrid films, it will be a combination of live-action and traditional hand drawn 2D animation with some CGI effects.

The film stars basketball player LeBron James (who also acts as a producer) as a fictionalized version of himself, along with Don Cheadle, Khris Davis, Sonequa Martin-Green, and Cedric Joe in live-action roles. It also features Looney Tunes characters, such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Marvin the Martian, and Tweety (all of whom voiced by Eric Bauza), as well as Sylvester and Foghorn Leghorn (voiced by Jeff Bergman), Lola Bunny (voiced by Kath Soucie), and Speedy Gonzales (voiced by Gabriel Iglesias).

Talks for a Space Jam sequel began after the release of the first film which Joe Pytka would have returned to direct and Spike Brandt and Tony Cervone signed on as the animation supervisors but eventually fell through due to Michael Jordan’s refusal to return. Several possible spin-offs, focusing on other athletes, including Jeff Gordon, Tiger Woods, and Tony Hawk, were also discussed, but never came to fruition. A LeBron James-led sequel was officially announced in 2014, and after several years of languishing, filming began under Terence Nance in June 2019 around Los Angeles. After a few weeks into filming, Nance left the project; Lee was hired to replace him in July 2019. Production wrapped in September 2019.
