Space Jam Sequel Reveals New Character Posters
New character posters show the main cast, as well as previously-unseen characters.
As we get closer to the release of Space Jam: A New Legacy, Warner Bros. has released a handful of new character posters, including our first look at Roadrunner and Speedy Gonzales in their spiffy new Toon Squad jerseys.
The new posters show star LeBron James along with key animated characters Bugs Bunny, Tweety, and the newly-redesigned Lola Bunny. Also included are their fellow toons Daffy Duck and Taz, as well as the previously-unseen Speedy Gonzales and Roadrunner.
Speedy has been the subject of some controversy in the movie's production, with some claiming the character perpetuates negative stereotypes about Mexican people. Speedy's voice actor Gabriel Iglesias has defended the character, however, and others have pointed out that the character is generally much-loved within the Spanish-speaking community.
While we know Porky Pig and Marvin the Martian will be appearing in the film, neither have gotten a poster this time around. Also missing is Pepé Le Pew, who originally had one scene in the movie that has since been cut by director Malcolm D. Lee.
Space Jam: A New Legacy is due out on July 16, 2021, and will release simultaneously in theatres and on HBO Max.
