One new addition that our household gained during this pandemic is our boys’ love for basketball. It was a surprise to me but we have fully embraced their new hobby – especially my husband. So, when Space Jam: A New Legacy was announced, of course, my family was excited! My husband and my boys watched the movie and here’s what they had to say.
“This movie is great for all ages.”
“Cameos were awesome!”
“It was so funny!”
“They did a great job incorporating all of the Warner Bros. Seververse.”
“It’s cool that two of the Goon Squad members were women.”
“If you’re worried that they just tried to remake the original Space Jam movie, don’t be. Go watch the movie!”
“LeBron James was great at poking fun at himself in the movie.”
What Happens in Space Jam: A New Legacy
Basketball champion and global icon LeBron James goes on an epic adventure alongside timeless Tune Bugs Bunny with the animated/live-action event “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” from director Malcolm D. Lee and an innovative filmmaking team including Ryan Coogler and Maverick Carter.
This transformational journey is a manic mashup of two worlds that reveals just how far some parents will go to connect with their kids. 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.
The all-star cast also includes award-winning actors Don Cheadle and Zendaya; and comedian sensations Eric Bauza, and Gabriel Iglesias.
Space Jam: A New Legacy in theaters July 16, 2021 and on HBO Max (subscription).
