While LeBron James continues to recover from his high ankle sprain and his Los Angeles Lakers fight to stay high in the standings without him, James had another off-court milestone. On Saturday morning, Warner Bros. dropped the first trailer for LeBron’s “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” his biggest movie project yet as an actor.

In the trailer, the audience finally gets a chance to see what the actual story will be, after years of script rewrites and reports about what the movie is about. You can see the full trailer below, with LeBron James falling through the Warner Bros. “serververse” to save his son. James also has to finish the “Goon Squad,” which is likely where the other NBA and WNBA players will come in.
