Warner has revealed a new trailer for what may be one of the biggest blockbusters of this summer, with audiences wishing they could return to theaters: Space Jam New Legends. The late sequel to one of the hits of the 90s will once again revolve around the world of basketball, but with Lebron Jones instead of Michael Jordan.
This second trailer (which you can see here Transtaled to spanish) arrives just two months after the first trailer, which surprised by its countless cameos of Warner Brothers characters: King Kong, Drogon from Game of Thrones, the Iron Giant … This new trailer puts more focus on the Looney Tunes, who will team up with Lebron as he tries to retrieve his son from Don Cheadle’s big hands.
The 1996 Space Jam mixed real image with traditional animation, a technique already used in Who Framed Rogger Rabbit? and used again in Looney Tunes Back in Action. For Space Jam in 2021, a choice has been made 3d animation, seeing the Looney Tunes as we have never seen them before, although maintaining the same proportions, designs and visual gags as in the usual drawings (pay attention to the pounding that poor Coyote gives himself).
Space Jam New Legends to hit theaters on July 16, 2021. In addition to Lebron James, the film will star Don Cheadle (the Avengers), Khris Davis (Atlanta, Judas and the Black Messiah) and Sonequa Martin-Geen (The Walking Dead, Star Trek Discovery). It is directed by Malcolm D. Lee, and the producers include Ryn Coogler (Black Panther, Creed).
As for the Looney Tunes, we will see Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Lola Bunny, the Road Runner and Coyote, the Tasmanian Devil, Yosemite Sam … Do you want to meet these funny characters in the movies?
