‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ Trailer: Look at How They Massacred My Boys

Warner Bros. has released a new official trailer for Space Jam: A New Legacy and… it’s not good. I know that’s probably not a huge shocker for anyone who saw the first trailer, but yeah, this looks like trash.

I know a lot of people say that the original Space Jam is also hot garbage and that we’re just blinded by nostalgia, but I want to know anyone who would rather watch this steaming pile of multiverse trash than the small-scale and delightful ’90s original.

Yet, I cannot help but feel sorry for the Looney Tunes who were clearly roped into this whole mess LeBron James being unable to bond with his son. I liked it better when the Looney Tunes were the ones who had screwed up and needed to recruit an NBA all-star to help them out of their mess.

Also, what’s the over-under on LeBron James leaving the match early after the Tune Squad is down a few points? Sigh, who am I kidding, I know I’ll probably go see this in theaters. But a little part of me wishes that Warner Bros. would figure out their shit and actually start working on compelling standalone films that aren’t a stealth attempt at launching a cinematic universe/multiverse.

Plot Synopsis:

Welcome to the Jam! 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.

Space Jam: A New Legacy hits theaters and HBO Max on July 16, 2021.
