Space Jam: A New Legacy aka Space Jam 2 is more than a sequel. I was expecting a rehash of the Michael Jordan version but Lebron got something new. You must watch the trailer over and over again because of all the cameos and easter eggs you will discover.
The original Space Jam is a crossover between NBA and Looney Tunes. Space Jam: A New Legacy is the crossover for all Warner Brothers properties. On my first watch of the trailer, I saw Hanna Barbera characters like Yogi Bear and the Flintstones. DC comics characters are also visible in the film. I saw Batman and some of his villains. In one of the scenes, Penguin is in the audience sitting next to the Mask.
The Iron Giant is held as one of the most underrated films of all time. Seeing this cult classic Icon making an appearance in this movie is pretty sweet.
I wish Pepe Le Pew was not canceled if they will make characters like Pennywise and Alex DeLarge make appearances in this film because those characters are not age-appropriate too. Pennywise kills children. Meanwhile, Alex DeLarge is a murderous rapist from the controversial film Clockwork Orange. The people who petitioned against Pepe never realized his character got reworked in 2011.I mean they never watched the 2011 reboot at all.
Very timely for the release of Godzilla vs Kong is King Kong. Yes, King Kong is also on Space Jam 2. This film is being shown on HBO Max and one of HBO’s biggest franchises is the Game of Thrones. Space Jam: A New Legacy is a movie you have to rewatch and pause over and over again because of the unlimited cameos you have to hunt down. The first trailer has so many references already and I am sure the final version will have more cameos. Space Jam 2 is coming this July 14 of this year.
