Space Jam: A New Legacy (Not with Jim Carrey)13 Jul 2021
By Eva Ara˙jo (Web correspondent)
In a previous article we talk about the new Space Jam movie, this time starring LeBron James. The movie will have theatrical premiere on July 16th and on HBO Max. Some characters from the Warner Brother's archives will show up, including Jim Carrey's character The Mask.
Just to make it clear before you see it. Jim Carrey is NOT The Mask, Jim Carrey is not involved in the movie in any way. We are glad to see The Mask on the screen again.
Space Jam: A new Legacy synopsis:
"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 in the highest-stakes challenge of his life, that will redefine LeBron's bond with his son and shine a light on the power of being yourself. The ready-for-action Tunes destroy convention, supercharge their unique talents and surprise even "King" James by playing the game their own way."
The movie is directed by Malcolm D. Lee and an innovative filmmaking team including Ryan Coogler and Maverick Carter and is "a transformational journey is a manic mashup of two worlds that reveals just how far some parents will go to connect with their kids."
Even tough Jim Carrey is not envolved, The character "The Mask" has been featured in several other projects:
- Original comic book series (1987-2020)
- The Mask (1994) - Jim Carrey played the role
- The Mask Video Game (1995)
- The Mask: Animated Series (1995-1997)
- Son of the Mask (2005)
- Saturday Night Live sketch (2014)
