Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Sept. 3 will release Space Jam: A New Legacy for premium digital ownership at $29.99, and 48-hour PVOD rental at $24.99. It arrives on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Oct. 5.
The film is a remake of 1996’s Space Jam, which combined live-action and animation to team basketball legend Michael Jordan with Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes against a team of monsters from outer space.
The new version stars LeBron James, who must recruit the Looney Tunes to play a basketball video game against a team created by the artificial intelligence program (Don Cheadle) that controls the Warner Bros. mainframe and has captured LeBron’s son as revenge for LeBron rejecting his pitch to star on a series of movies for the studio. To save his son and escape the computer, LeBron, Bugs and the rest of the Tunes must defeat a team of computer enhanced NBA and WNBA stars.
The film earned $68 million during a domestic box office run in which it was simultaneously available on HBO Max for a month.
The DVD and Blu-ray editions of the film will include deleted scenes. The 4K combo pack and Blu-ray editions will also contain the featurettes “First Quarter: Game On,” “Second Quarter: Teamwork,” “Third Quarter: Out of This World” and “Fourth Quarter: The Looniest.”
Additionally, Warner Bros. will continue its partnership with Nifty’s, a social NFT platform, to introduce a second collection of limited-edition NFTs inspired by the film.
