SPACE Jam: A New Legacy follows a similar format to the 1996 original but this time stars LeBron James as well as a host of Looney Tunes cartoon characters.
The upcoming film, also known as Space Jam 2, has huge shoes to fill as the first film was a huge worldwide commercial success.
Space Jam 2 cast: Who stars in the new movie?
The Lakers star is widely seen as one of basketball’s all-time greats.
James, 36, plays himself who, along with his son Dom (Cedric Joe) – who wants to be a video game developer – are trapped in a virtual space by a rogue algorithm named Al-G Rhythm.
LeBron has to lead the madcap Looney Tunes gang to victory over the Al-G's digitized champions, the Goon Squad on the basketball court, in order to get home safely.
Cheadle plays Al-G Rhythm, an evil computer algorithm.
The US actor has been in a host of Hollywood blockbusters including The Ocean’s triology, Boogie Nights, the Iron Man films and the Avengers franchise.
