In the first trailer of the newest Space Jam movie, fans get to see NBA star LeBron James take on his first lead acting role. The movie, officially titled Space Jam: A New Legacy, watches James’ character travel through different movies in search of Bugs Bunny.
In the trailer, we first see James as a father, who is seemingly pushing his son to follow in his footsteps as a great basketball player. Following an argument, James and his son find themselves in an alternate reality, known as the “Serververse.”
And from there the adventure begins until James and Bugs Bunny find themselves playing against the Goon Squad, yet again. The trailer shows emotion, action, and a whole lot of comedy! What more can you ask for in a movie?

James also posted the trailer to his own Instagram platform and some of the best athletes and friends couldn’t wait to show their support.
“Can’t wait to watch,” Tom Brady wrote, while former teammate Dwyane Wade added, “Getting my popcorn ready to watch this one. Congrats.”
Wade’s oldest son, Zaire, also commented on the trailer, writing, When I heard son I was looking for lil bro,” referring to James’ oldest son Bronny. Even seasoned actor Jamie Foxx commented, “Congratulations on this 👑!!! Can’t wait!!!”
Currently, James is sidelined after suffering a high ankle sprain. In March, “LeBron James left in the second quarter with a high right ankle sprain that the Lakers said will sideline him indefinitely, and Los Angeles went on to fall 99-94 to the Atlanta Hawks,” the NBA previously reported. He will be out indefinitely.
And although the injury left him hurting “inside and out,” at least James has his movie to look forward to, which comes out on July 16. Who else is excited?
