In 1996, NBA legend Michael Jordan starred alongside Bugs Bunny and other Warner Bros. cartoon characters in the hit movie Space Jam.

It's been known for awhile that LeBron James will be starring in a long-awaited sequel, dubbed "Space Jam: A New Legacy."

The official Twitter account for the movie released a 2:38 trailer, where just after saying "What in The Matrix hell?," James is sucked into a virtual world before being sent to a cartoon world.

You can watch the trailer below.

The movie opens in theaters and on HBO Max on July 16.
