Warner Bros. Teases New Space Jam Character Posters

Warner Bros. has unveiled a series of new character posters ahead of the release of Space Jam: A New Legacy.

The new posters show iconic Looney Tunes characters like Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny, Tweety Bird and Daffy Duck decked out in Tune Squad uniforms. LeBron James is also featured in the new advertising material alongside his animated co-stars.

The new animated and live-action film is directed by Malcom D. Lee and comes 25 years after the original. In A New Legacy, LeBron James and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue AI and must lead the Tune Squad to victory in order to return home safely.

Oscar nominee Don Cheadle and “The Walking Dead” star Sonequa Martin-Green will also star in the new film, set to be released in theaters and on HBO Max for U.S. Audiences on July 16.

The highly-anticipated film gained media attention after revealing that it would be changing Lola Bunny’s outfit in favor of a more sporty look. In addition, popular character Pepe Le Pew was axed from the sequel because of recent controversy surrounding rape culture and the character’s portrayal of consent.
