After seeing King James' goof on him, Michael B. was sure to respond with a clever quip of his own:

James started filming in June 2019 as he was preparing for what would be the regular season leading to his fourth title. Reports reveal that similar to the first Space Jam, several basketball players are set to make cameo appearances. Among them are Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, Kyle Kuzma, and Diana Taurasi. Veteran actor Don Cheadle will also be in the film.

LeBron James actually shared that Space Jam: A New Legacy centers on the relationship between him and his son, to be played by Ceyair J. Wright. Per Erik Swannof Cinema Blend:

It’s more of a family movie. It's a parenting movie between me and my son and me trying to demand my son to do something because I was taught that way growing up, demand my son to play basketball. ‘This is all you're gonna do, this is how you do it.' And me as a parent not listening to my son and not believing in what my son is actually great at. It's a tackling between me being a parent and supporting my son, and my son basically turning off at some point and me trying to regain that trust throughout the movie. Along with the great Bugs Bunny, and Lola, and Taz, and Tweety, all of them.

The film is slated to be released on July 16, 2021 in theaters and thru HBO Max.
