“Space Jam: A New Legacy” bounced into movie theaters on Friday, but if you want to watch from the comforts of home, you can stream the film exclusively on HBO Max. LeBron James, Don Cheadle, Kris Davis, Sonequa Martin-Green, newcomer Cedric Joe, and Zendaya (as the voice of Lola Bunny) star in the part live-action, part-animated film featuring beloved “Looney Tunes” characters including Bugs Bunny (Jeff Bergman), Tweety (Bob Bergen), Tasmanian Devil (Fred Tatasciore), Granny (Candi Milo), and Porky Pig (Eric Bauza).
Directed by Malcolm D. Lee and produced by Ryan Coogler and James’s business partner, Maverick Carter, “Space Jam: A New Legacy” revolves around an epic basketball tournament that kicks off when James and his son Dom (Joe) get trapped in a digital dimension by a tyrannical A.I. character named Al-G Rhythm (Cheadle). James must get them home safely by leading Bugs, Lola, and the rest of the Tune Squad in a basketball game against A.I. champions. “Space Jam: A New Legacy” features NBA players Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis, Nneka Ogwumike, and Clay Thomas, all of whom voice characters on the opposing Goon Squad.
