Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James recent revealed new details about “Space Jam: A New Legacy” in an interview on a recent episode of “Road Trippin’.”

Here’s a breakdown of what James said about the new film.

It’s not a sequel:

  • “It’s not a sequel,” James said. “It’s called “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” it’s not called “Space Jam 2.” There will be a basketball game, I’ll say that. And there will be some people that are a little out of this world that we’re competing against.”

Monstars probably won’t appear:

  • “You can call them that. ... They have a different name. I won’t give the name,” James said.

It’s a movie about family:

  • “It’s a parenting movie between me and my son, and me trying to demand my son to do something because I was taught that way growing up. Demand my son to play basketball. ‘This is what you’re gonna do, this is how you’re gonna do it.’ And me as a parent not listening to my son and not believing in what my son is actually great at. It’s a tackling between me being a parent and supporting my son, and my son basically turning off at some point and me trying to regain that trust throughout the movie. Along with the great Bugs Bunny, and Lola, and Taz, and Tweety. All of them.”
