“Space Jam: A New Legacy” comes out July 16 — right about when LeBron James hopes to be wrapping up back-to-back NBA titles with the Lakers.

The plot of the new Space Jam film has LeBron, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, the Tazmanian Devil (an underrated small-ball power forward with a sweet spin move) and more going through the catalog of classic Warner Brothers movies, such as The Matrix and Casablanca.
SPACE JAM: A NEW LEGACY includes cameos from The Matrix, Mad Max, DC, and Casablanca franchises as LeBron James & his son travel through the Warner 3000 entertainment "Server-verse” whilst AI G Rhythm tries to steal LeBron’s Instagram followers.

If the plot seems a little far-fetched, well, watch the original Space Jam with Michael Jordan and get back to me.
