(This was inspired by several Nike commercials.) In the movie, Jordan plunged into the “Looney Tunes” animation world to help the so-called “Tune Squad” ( All the most popular animation “Rooney Tunisia” character) won a basketball game with a group of enslaved aliens called Nedruk. In addition to Jordan, NBA players Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Sean Bradley, Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson and Mags Boggs also became guest appearances.

Once again, several NBA players played: Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, Drummond Green and Kyle Kuzma. (There are also rumors of WNBA players Diana Taurasi, Nneka Ogwumike and Chiney Ogwumike.)
The sharp-eyed audience will not only see the characters in the classic “Rooney Tuning” in the trailer, including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Lola Bunny and Foghorn Leghorn, but also notice other franchise characters (game of Thrones, Lord of the Ringss The Wizard of Oz, Hanna-Barbera and various other pop culture icons.

I don’t have a real dog in this battle, but in this era of universe franchise shared by multiple characters, it makes me feel very stupid criticism, especially because Space jam It can be said to be the first to do it. Space Jam: A New LegacyMaybe not your predicament, but I expect it will attract a large target audience who are looking for family-friendly fares, especially as the country is increasingly restricted by the pandemic this summer (finger crossed).
Space Jam: New Legacy At the same time, it will premiere in cinemas and HBO Max on July 16, 2021.
