(CNN Philippines, April 5) — The first trailer of "Space Jam: A New Legacy" dropped Sunday, and it included a famous dunk scene to NBA fans.

LeBron James, star of the upcoming film, recreated his famous dunk with Dwyane Wade when they played for the Miami Heat, but this time, it was with Lola Bunny (voiced by Zendaya) who threw the alley-oop then spread her arms in a triumphant gesture.

The live-action/animated sports comedy movie, which will be released in US theaters on July 16, features LeBron trapped in a virtual space by a rogue algorithm named Al-G Rhythm played by Don Cheadle. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar needs to play a basketball game to save his son.

Like in the original film starring Michael Jordan, LeBron teams up with the "Tune Squad" to beat a group called "Goon Squad" in the said game.

NBA players Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, Chris Paul, Draymond Green, Kyle Kuzma, and WNBA player Diana Taurasi are also part of the cast.
