Forever remembered as one of the most iconic basketball movies, Space Jam a film widely known for its unification of the great Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes, is set to release a sequel next Summer starring none other than LA Lakers’ superstar LeBron James. Distracting hoops fans from all things related to the bubble playoffs for a brief moment, the King is shifting our attention towards one of his most anticipated on-screen initiatives for the upcoming Space Jam: A New Legacy film. Although the motion picture isn’t expected to hit theaters (or possible streaming services if COVID-19 is still around), it’s already teasing what appear to be the modernized Tune Squad uniforms.
Revealed yesterday via a dramatic walk-in video of James himself rockin’ the LeBron 15 “Orange Box”, the new jerseys seen are decked out in a vibrant blue, and sport “Tune Squad” across the chest with oversized sunset-like circle gradients that extend onto the bottom shorts. Additionally, you’ll notice that the 17-year vet reveals that he will wear #6, his current practice jersey/former Miami heat number. Peep a closer look at the video in full here below, and get your popcorn ready for 2021.
For other news, the Samba Dunks are confirmed to release on 8/21.
