Ever since Warner Brothers announced the production of ‘Space Jam 2’ featuring NBA megastar LeBron James, fans wondered whether or not it would live up to its famous predecessor. That remains to be seen, but fans now have a glimpse of what’s yet to come. A leak from writer/director Ben Mekler revealed major parts of the alleged plot, sparking plenty of excitement.
The leak reads, “During a trip to the Warner Bros.’ studio, NBA superstar LeBron James and his son accidentally get trapped within a world that contains all of Warner Bros.’ stories and characters, under the control of a malfunctioning, all-powerful force named Al G (played by Don Cheadle). With the help of Bugs Bunny, LeBron must navigate through a never-before-imagined world filled with iconic movie scenes and characters as re-assembled the Looney Tunes to rescue his lost son. Now to get back home, LeBron and the Tunes have to unravel Al G’s mysterious plan and win an epic basketball game against digital gamified super-versions of the NBA and WNBA’s biggest stars as the entire world watches.”
It’s an interesting plot, to say the least. In fact, it stands out from the atypical story of the original Space Jam plot featuring Michael Jordan. Speaking of the original, this upcoming film will similarly feature several professional basketball players. Among them are the NBA’s Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul and Kyle Kuzma. The film will also feature WNBA’s Diana Taurasi, Nneka Ogwumike and Cheny Ogwumike.
Space Jam 2 is scheduled to release on July 16, 2021.
