‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ comes with everything and a luxurious cast

Even though more than 20 years have passed since its premiere, the first film of Space Jam our heads keep flying. And it is that, if we are honest, to see the tremendous idol that is Michael Jordan next to Bugs Bunny and company is one of those things that only cinema – and of course, Warner Bros – could put together.

And that’s how exciting that delivery was, A New Legacy (‘A new era’ in Latin America) seems to have all the ingredients to repeat and take the formula to another level. Now, LeBron James is the figure who will embark on a game of epic proportions where, with the help of the Looney Tunes, he will reform the Tune Squad and try to stop the fearsome and powerful Goon Squad, the undefeated champions of a digital universe of madness.

But to all this … who are the members of that team? Who is leading them? Who will we listen to giving voice to our beloved animated characters? Well, look no further than below we will review the cast of Space Jam: A New Legacy.

LeBron James

Let’s start with the Tune Squad and the top figure of the moment…. If in the 90s, Warner Bros threw the house out of the window by bringing Michael Jordan to the big screen, for the sequel to Space Jam the matter would not be different. So they brought in the mere grouper, the figure, one of the brightest basketball stars of recent years who undoubtedly already has a secured place in the Olympus of blast sport.

The iconic LeBron James, current Lakers player, is our protagonist in Space Jam: A New Legacy. As is well known, he will play himself and be the hero who commands the Looney Tunes team in this dangerous and exciting encounter. The young version of the basketball player will be played by actor Alex Huerta.

Jeff Bergman as Bugs Bunny, Silvestre and more characters

For dubbing dunks and those who watch the movie in its original language you’ll be happy to know that Jeff Bergman will return to cover the voice of our favorite rabbit, Bugs Bunny. To understand the value of this man within the Looney Tunes franchise, it must be mentioned that he was the first to replace the legendary Mel Blanc (the voice of the first animations) following his passing as a voice actor for the iconic WB emblem character.

Of course, although Jeff did not participate in the first installment of Space Jam, now he will do so in A New Legacy and he will do it with various characters such as Silvestre and Bigotes Sam. For the Latin dubbing, Alfonso Obregón is confirmed, who lent his voice for the 1996 delivery and who, among other things, is recognized as the Latin voice of Shrek himself.
