Space Jam: A New Legacy, the sequel to the 1996 classic Space Jam is set to release in a few months and fans simply can’t wait for the film. It stars basketball legend, LeBron James, as he works together with classic Looney Tunes characters to save the day.
The original final starred Michael Jordan and included several legendary basketball players such as Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson and more.
Naturally, the sequel will follow suit and feature several NBA stars. The latest trailer for the film dropped recently and it featured Damian Lillard, Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis, Diana Taurasi, and Nneka Ogwumike who will play the members of the “Goon Squad,” the main antagonists of the film whom James will play against.
However, it seems James might be saving a surprise cameo as James didn’t actually mention Kyrie Irving in his tweet where he thanked the aforementioned basketball players for acting in the film.
