The first Space Jam: A New Legacy trailer will be released on Saturday, April 3, Warner Bros. The exact release time for the Space Jam: A New Legacy trailer isn’t available, but it should be around Warner’s usual slot (9:30 p.m. IST / 9 a.m. PT / 4 p.m. GMT). It’s unclear if there will be local language versions of the Space Jam: A New Legacy trailer in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. With basketball star LeBron James in the lead, Space Jam: A New Legacy is a sequel to the original 1996 Michael Jordan Space Jam film and brings the Looney Tunes characters back to the big screen for the first time since 2003 Looney Tunes: Back in action.
Warner Bros. announced Space Jam: A New Legacy’s April 3 release date on Thursday on its social media channels, with a short video featuring iconic Looney Tunes duo Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner. Coyote is trampled by an RV and the Road Runner comes out with a sign that reads: “Space Jam: A New Legacy trailer Saturday.” Although they are part of the trailer announcement, Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner are not expected to be part of Space Jam: A New Legacy. The movie largely involves the characters we saw on Space Jam.
This includes Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Marvin the Martian, Tweety, Sylvester, Foghorn Leghorn, and Speedy Gonzales. But thanks to its plot mechanic, which finds LeBron James and his son trapped in a virtual word by an AI algorithm, Space Jam: A New Legacy will bring a bunch of other characters from properties owned by the director of Warner Bros. , Malcolm D Lee has announced that we will enter the worlds of Batman, Wonder Woman, King Kong, The Matrix, Mad Max and even Casablanca.
In addition to LeBron, Space Jam: A New Legacy also stars Don Cheadle as the aforementioned AI-G algorithm, Sonequa Martin Green as LeBron Kamiyah’s wife, Cedric Joe as LeBron Dom’s youngest son Ceyair J .Wright as LeBron’s eldest son, Darius, and Harper Leigh Alexander as Xosha, LeBron’s daughter. Several NBA and WNBA players will have cameos.
Lee is directing a screenplay by Juel Taylor, Tony Rettenmaier, Keenan Coogler and Terence Nance. LeBron is also a producer on Space Jam: A New Legacy alongside Ryan Coogler, Maverick Carter and Duncan Henderson. Space Jam: A New Legacy is a production of Warner Animation Group, Proximity Media and SpringHill Entertainment. Warner Bros. Pictures is the global distributor.
Here’s the official synopsis for Space Jam: A New Legacy from Warner Bros .:

This transformational journey is a manic blend of two worlds that reveals just how far some parents will go to connect with their children.

It’s Tunes versus Goons in The Highest Challenge of a Lifetime, which will redefine LeBron’s bond with his son and shine a light on the power of being yourself.
