New Legacy is rightly being compared to Ready Player One and the LEGO movies after Warner Bros. released the first trailer for Space Jam 2. The big 2018 film adaptation of Ernest Cline’s 2011 novel featured plenty of cameos from fan favorites, but the Space Jam sequel could feature even crazier cameos from the studio’s massive vault, as the short trailer shows. Be prepared to watch the Space Jam 2 trailer multiple times.

The Iron Giant returns in the Space Jam 2 trailer and looks a lot like him in Ready Player One. He is joined by King Kong, who is currently wreaking havoc at the weekend box office with his good friend Godzilla. Chitara from ThunderCats can be seen behind many of the Hanna-Barbera characters, including the Flintstones, Yogi Bear, Jabberjaw and many others. Of course, all the Looney Tunes characters are present, including Yosemite Sam, who doesn’t seem to understand what LeBron James means by playing basketball.

In some shots of the basketball crowd, it’s easy to see Mama Fratelli from Psycho alongside some of the White Walkers from Game of Thrones, Mr. Freeze from Batman and Robin, various versions of the Joker, including the iconic series directed by Cesar Romero, and the 1989 version of Batman recognized by Jack Nicholson. There are even different versions of the Penguin standing on the sidelines with Agent Smith from the Matrix franchise.
The characters from Scooby-Doo are there, as well as The Mask and the Droogs from Stanley Kubrick’s cult film Clockwork Orange, and some of the fighters from Mad Max: Fury Road. Why exactly there are two highly aggressive gangs with IT’s Pennywise by their side is unclear, but Warner Bros. certainly chose to.
The Wizard of Oz appears more than once in the Space Jam 2 trailer. LeBron James can be seen floating above the planet Westeros from Game of Thrones before passing the planet Oz. Later in the trailer, you can see the Flying Monkey clapping in the crowd, while the man in the yellow hat from Curious George gets lost in the background. It’s not entirely clear, but it even looks like Pinhead from the Hellraiser franchise is taking over space basketball from the cheap seats.
Warner Bros. has released a trailer for Space Jam 2 that gives fans something to dissect. Still, the result has already led to some reactions on social media. Overall, people seem to be having fun discovering all the cameos in the trailer, which should lead to many more cameos when the highly anticipated sequel hits theaters later this year. Like the rest of Warner Bros, Space Jam 2 will be released in 2021 and will be available to stream for free on HBO Max. You can see some of the comets in the suite above and below, courtesy of Ben Menkler’s official Twitter account.
