Space Jam: A New Legacy trailer is full of nostalgia and cameos

The first Space Jam: A New Legacy trailer has dropped, and it’s packed with Looney Tunes fan favorites, Lebron James, 90s and 00s nostalgia, and even a reimagining of an iconic NBA moment. Watch the trailer above.

Space Jam: A New Legacy arrives 25 years after the first movie, which starred living-legend Michael Jordan, and the Warner Bros. sequel will again feature an NBA superstar trying to help save the toon universe, but this time he has to rescue his son, too. There's no word yet on if Jordan will make a surprise cameo in A New Legacy. 

The sequel also marks the first theatrically released film to feature Looney Tunes characters since 2003's Looney Tunes: Back in Action. A New Legacy will also feature Zendaya as Lola Bunny's voice, the official Twitter account for the film announced on Saturday. Lola Bunny gives her best Dwayne Wade impression in the trailer while running away with open arms as  James dunks the ball. NBA and Miami Heat fans may remember the moment from the time Jame and Wade were teammates. 

Sonequa Martin-Green and Don Cheadle star alongside Zendaya, among several NBA and WNBA players. Along with hoping for Jordan to make a cameo, fans of the first film wish on a toon star for Bill Murray and Wayne Knight cameos.

Fans won't have to wait long as Space Jam: A New Legacy hits theaters on July 16 and will be available on HBO Max for 31 days, along with other upcoming movies that will be available on the streamer. Here's how to find the best HBO Max prices and deals
