Los Angeles Lakers stalwart LeBron James is set to be featured in the upcoming movie ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’, a sequel to the 1996 release starring the legendary Micahel Jordan. However, almost a year before its release, the plot of Space Jam 2 has been leaked online!
Earlier in March this year, it was confirmed that Space Jam: A New Legacy will see the return of the formula from the original release- the interaction of real-world celebrities with the fictional world of Looney Tunes.
The original Space Jam saw Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny together as the main cast. In the sequel, it was revealed that The Joker, The Mask, Pennywise and also The Wicked Witch of West will also be making an appearance as they join LeBron and other basketball icons.
Space Jam: A New Legacy synopsis revealed on Twitter
Now, the synopsis of Space Jam 2 has been leaked on social media by renowned screenwriter and director Ben Mekler, who shared an image inscribed with the plot of the movie on Twitter on 19th October.
“During a trip to the Warner Bros. studio, NBA Superstar LeBron James and his son accidentally get trapped within a world that contains all of Warner Bros.’ stories and characters, under the control of a malfunctioning, all-powerful force named Al G (played by Don Cheadle),” Mekler’s post on Twitter read.
“With the help of Bugs Bunny, LeBron must navigate through a never-before-imagined world filled with iconic movie scenes and characters as they re-assemble the Looney Tunes to rescue his lost son. Now to get back home, LeBron and the Tunes have to unravel Al G’s mysterious plan and win an epic basketball game against digital gamified super-versions of the NBA and WNBA’s biggest stars as the entire world watches,” the tweet added.
