Space Jam website finally gets an update after 25 years
The Space Jam website finally has a new look in advance of LeBron James’ sequel to the original film starring Michael Jordan.
The site had not been since the first film was released 25 years ago. But with Space Jam: A New Legacy slated to release on July 16, developers have given the site an overhaul.
LeBron and Bugs Bunny feature prominently on the home page, which includes access to the trailer as well as a synopsis for the film.
The plot follows James and his fictional son, Dom, after the two are trapped in digital space, per the website:
When LeBron and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I., LeBron must get them home safe by leading Bugs, Lola Bunny and the whole gang of notoriously undisciplined Looney Tunes to victory over the A.I.’s digitized champions on the court: a powered-up roster of professional basketball stars as you’ve never seen them before. It’s Tunes versus Goons in the highest-stakes challenge of his life, that will redefine LeBron’s bond with his son and shine a light on the power of being yourself. The ready-for-action Tunes destroy convention, supercharge their unique talents and surprise even “King” James by playing the game their own way.

Space Jam: A New Legacy will have a theatrical release and will also have a one-month run on HBO Max. The film also stars fellow NBA players such as Chris Paul, Klay Thompson and Damian Lillard as well as WNBA players like Diana Taurasi.
