The James-led film is a sequel to the 1996 blockbuster ‘Space Jam’, which is directed by Malcolm D. Lee. On Friday, the NBA superstar released the first new stills from the movie featuring everyone’s favourite toon characters.
Whether it was an angry Tweety bird or Bugs Bunny and Lola Bunny ready to play ball, Daffy Duck and Tasmanian Devil joining the crew, the first stills brought with it a load of ‘90s nostalgia, perfect for a #FlashbackFriday trend.
The film will also feature ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ actor Sonequa Martin-Green and ‘Avengers: Endgame’ star Don Cheadle in prominent roles.
James and his business partner Maverick Carter are also producing the movie alongside ‘Black Panther’ director Ryan Coogler and Duncan Henderson.
The original 1996 live-action/animated film featured Michael Jordan in the lead. In the movie, Jordan teams up with Bugs Bunny and his Looney Tunes gang to defeat evil alien basketball players.
