According to Media Play News, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Space Jam: A New Legacy on September 3 for premium digital ownership and 48-hour PVOD rental. It arrives on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Oct. 5.
The film is a remake of 1996’s Space Jam, which combined live-action and animation and paired basketball legend Michael Jordan with Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes characters against a team of monsters from outer space.
In this version, basketball champion and global icon LeBron James goes on an epic adventure alongside timeless Tune Bugs Bunny in a manic mashup of two worlds that reveals just how far some parents will go to connect with their kids. When LeBron and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I., LeBron must get them home safe by leading Bugs, Lola Bunny and the whole gang of notoriously undisciplined Looney Tunes to victory over the A.I.’s digitized champions on the court: a powered-up roster of professional basketball stars as you’ve never seen them before. It’s Tunes versus Goons. The ready-for-action Tunes destroy convention, supercharge their unique talents and surprise even “King” James by playing the game their own way.
According to Media Play News, the DVD and Blu-ray versions of the film will include deleted scenes. The 4K combo pack and Blu-ray editions will also contain the featurettes “First Quarter: Game On,” “Second Quarter: Teamwork,” “Third Quarter: Out of This World” and “Fourth Quarter: The Looniest.”
The film earned $68.1 million in North America and $144.9 million worldwide. It’s rated PG and has a 120 minute running time.
