The plot revolves around James and his mission to save the Tune Squad trapped in a digital space called “Server-verse” created by a rogue artificial intelligence named AI G Rhythm, played by Don Cheadle, best known for being War Machine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The four-time NBA champion, alongside his son Dom (Cedric Joe) in the film, will lead the Tune Squad against the evil Goon Squad in their attempt to escape the virtual world.

Produced by Ryan Coogler, director of “Black Panther,” and directed by Malcolm D. Lee, “Space Jam: A New Legacy” is set to premiere on July 16.
