The first trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to Space Jam: Game of the Century (1996) has been released and has confirmed a lot, including the fact that the film is truly a sequel, despite having a way to reboot.
The classic uniform from the original film appears and ends up undergoing a change in the “3D” world, so it’s likely that LeBron himself appears to be wearing it.
Additionally, Space Jam: A New Legacy turned out to be a journey through the Warner universe, which will run through virtually all of the company’s franchises, including the world of HBO, DC, Lord of the Rings, and more.
What movie icons would you choose for your “Dream Team” in a basketball game that is worth your child’s life?
And from what you’ve noticed in the trailer, one of the biggest graces of this streak will be to really hunt down the Easter Eggs inserted into the plot. Some are more explicit, like the universe of Hannah Barbera, which appears in force in this first trailer.
The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo, Zé Colmeia, Maguila, Tutubarão, Space Ghost, Captain Cave, The Jetsons and many other characters appear in the audience.
Another icon from the cartoons to appear is the legendary Iron Giant, who had already starred in an exciting moment in another recent live-action from Warner: Player Number 1 (2019).
But it’s precisely when other characters who are far from suitable for children start to appear that the situation gets really interesting. Starting with Game of Thrones characters like Drogon and the White Walkers.And what about the star of one of the biggest hits of 2021 to date, the gorilla Kong, who stops fighting with the lizard for a moment to see Game of the Century part 2?
The Batman universe is also present with characters from different periods of the franchise, like Robin and the Catwoman of the 1960s, and Jack Nicholson’s Joker, classic villain from Tim Burton’s film.
Pennywise, the dancing clown, who made the kids in the computer franchise’s Hell movies, also has a brief stint. Watch him behind one of the flying monkeys in The Wizard of Oz.
Another hooded character who quickly appears is The Máskara, a character immortalized by Jim Carrey in theaters.
Even Alex DeLarge and his gang of vandals from Stanley Kubrick’s classic Clockwork Orange take the time to watch the basketball game. And the craziest thing is that they are mixed with the minions of Immortan Joe: Fury Road by Mad Max.
Last but not the least … Are there any Miami Heat fans who miss the Big Three / Los Tres Amigos? Would Lola Bunny leave Dwayne Wade on the bench?
Okay, I think the only way to make it more interesting is to get a new participation from the greatest basketball player of all time, the incredible and reclusive Michael Jordan, right?
Space Jam: A New Legacy opens July 15, 2021. Anxious?
