LeBron James reveals Space Jam 2 photos in latest tweet
Before he teamed up with All-Star big man Anthony Davis with the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James first joined forces with Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes in Space Jam: A New Legacy, also known as Space Jam 2, which began filming in June 2019.
With the film set to be released in July, James has been giving people sneak peeks of the film, which is the sequel to the original Space Jam, which was released in 1996 and starred Michael Jordan. With the film’s release about four months away, James took to Twitter to share photos from the Space Jam 2 set, which were also released in Entertainment Weekly.

The pictures show James on the cover of the magazine wearing the Tune Squad’s teal uniforms and flanked by the Looney Tunes, such as Bug Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Lola Bunny, and Tweety. In another picture from the film, the 36-year-old attempts to dunk what appears to be a glowing basketball, and in another, appears to be in an in-game huddle with Tweety and looking less than pleased.
Based on the information about the film’s plot, Space Jam 2 will involve the four-time MVP teaming up and trying to install discipline among the Looney Tunes in order to win a high-stakes basketball game against talented opponents, not unlike the Monstars from the first Space Jam film.
Aside from the four-time NBA champion and the Looney Tunes, Space Jam: A New Legacy will also star Don Cheadle and Sonequa Martin-Green and will also reportedly include several NBA and WNBA players making cameo appearances.
It’s still too early to assess the film, but the information and pictures that have been shared about it so far have fans excited to see how LeBron James will fare in his latest big-screen appearance. Jordan comparisons, as always, also likely wouldn’t be far behind.
