A Surprise “Space Jam 2” Teaser Reveals LeBron James in Tune Squad Jersey

Looking good, LeBron!

In case you missed the news last night, we got our first glimpse at LeBron James in the Tune Squad jersey during an event for the LeBron James Family Foundation. LeBron is starring in Malcolm D. Lee’s Space  Jam: A New Legacy, his sequel to the 1996 classic starring Michael Jordan. In a brief video, we see James walking towards the camera in the Tune Squad’s multichromatic jersey.

There’s a lot of excitement for Lee’s sequel, considering the talent involved. It starts, of course, with James, but includes Black Panther co-writer and director Ryan Coogler, who co-wrote A New Legacy‘s script with his Fruitvale Station collaborator Sev Ohanian. Coolger not only co-wrote the film, but he also produces alongside James. And the score comes from none other than Hans Zimmer and When They See Us composer Kris Bowers. This is a seriously talented squad!

The cast has a bevy of James’ fellow NBA and WNBA superstars—Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis, Chris Paul, Damian Lillard, and Kyle Kuzma from the NBA, and WNBA players include Diana Taurasi and Nneka Ogwumike. Then there’s the acting talent involved, which includes Don Cheadle, Sonequa Martin-Green, Eric Bauza, and Kath Soucie
