Space Jam: A New Legacy has slam-dunked into cinemas 25 years after the original movie became a cult favourite.

The sequel sees LeBron James take on the Michael Jordan role as the basketball star drawn into the wacky world of Looney Tunes. This time around, LeBron and his son Dom (Cedric James) are trapped in a digital space by a rogue AI (Don Cheadle).

In order to escape, LeBron must lead Bugs, Lola Bunny (voiced by Zendaya) and the rest of the Tune Squad to victory over the AI's champions on the court made up of a powered-up roster of professional basketball stars as you've never seen them before. It's Tunes against Goons in the biggest match of LeBron's life.
