The Los Angeles Lakers star will be following in Michael Jordan’s footsteps after he starred in the beloved 1996 flick.
The likes of Don Cheadle, Klay Thompson, Damian Lillard, Diana Taurasi and Anthony Davis are all reportedly set to make appearances in the film.
James previously spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about his role in the movie back in September 2018.
“The ‘Space Jam’ collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie,” he shared. “It’s so much bigger.
“I’d just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don’t just give up on their dreams. And I think Ryan [Coogler] did that for a lot of people [with ‘Black Panther’].”
“Space Jam: A New Legacy” is expected to be released in theatres July 16, 2021.
