The official Space Jam Movie Instagram just released a teaser for the upcoming soundtrack. It features so many artists ranging from pop to hip-hop to R&B artists. P-Lo and Saweetie are mentioned along with 16 other artists like the Jonas Brothers, Chance the Rapper, John Legend, Leon Bridges, Lil Baby & Kirk Franklin, Big Freedia, Brockhampton, and In the Heights’ Anthony Ramos. The Bay Area is represented in the soundtrack with a collaboration between P-Lo, Dame D.O.L.L.A (aka Damian Lillard from the NBA's Portland Trailblazers), G-Eazy, and White Dave. While Saweetie is collaborating with rapper Dash Doll and hip-hop legends Salt-N-Pepa. The track listing isn't yet available but we're sure it'll be coming out soon.
The Space Jam A New Legacy Soundtrack on July 9, while Space Jam: A New Legacy comes to theaters and HBO Max on July 16. Space Jam: A New Legacy features LeBron James as himself, as he and his son Dom played by Cedric Joe get stuck in the universe run by an A.I., voiced by Don Cheadle. In order to save his son, James teams up with the Looney Tunes to beat the Goon Squad in a basketball game. We spotlighted back in January that the voice of Bugs Bunny is Fil-Canadian voice actor and comedian, Eric Bauza. The "What's Up Doc?" voice actor is the seventh person to voice the bunny. He's also voiced in shows like 'The Fairly Oddparents,' 'Ren & Stimpy,' and other Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon series.

Streaming platform, HBO Max recently released a preview of the upcoming films to be released in 2021. One of the films on the list is 'Space Jam: A New Legacy' starring NBA superstar, LeBron James. If you didn't know, the current voice of Bugs Bunny is Fil-Canadian voice actor and comedian, Eric Bauza. The "What's Up Doc?" voice actor is the seventh person to voice the bunny.
In addition to the Looney Tunes Show, Bauza has a vast resume. He's also voiced in shows like 'The Fairly Oddparents,' 'Ren & Stimpy,' and other Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon series. In the interview below, he shared that he learned different voices and accents at a young age. "Every Filipino household had a karaoke machine. We used to record greetings to family back home and I would say things my mom cooked in a Filipino accent."
The much awaited remake to the 1996 'Space Jam' with Michael Jordan has been hyped up since the announcement. Space Jam 2 luckily wrapped in 2019, but details have been kept on the down low except for a sneak peak of the new Tune Squad jersey designs. According to Complex, LeBron was honored to fill the role that MJ held:
"I’m just a small kid from Akron, Ohio —a very small town outside of Cleveland. From a single-parent household, I’m the only child, my mother had absolutely nothing," James said at the time. "She was walking around high school when she was 16 years old and she was pregnant with me as a high school sophomore. So, I’m really not supposed to be here."HBO Max Shares First Look At LeBron James’ ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’
