The uniform sports more than a hint of the iconic Looney Tunes concentric circles within an eye-catching field of powder blue. The nostalgia, however, is centered on the team name on the jersey. Just as Michael Jordan did in 1996, it appears James will indeed be suiting up for the “Tune Squad.”
“Space Jam: A New Legacy” is set to be released in United States theaters on July 16, 2021.
