Other hoopers in the picture reportedly will include Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis, Klay Thompson, Diana Taurasi and Nneka Ogwumike, among others.

"It's one of the biggest games, if not the biggest game, I've ever played in," James told reporters in February about appearing in the new Space Jam. "The Goon Squad is probably the best team ever assembled in basketball history."

The original Space Jam was released in 1996 and starred Michael Jordan and Bill Murray, among others, alongside the Looney Tune's cast of characters. It was a huge hit, raking in $230 million at the box office and much more in merchandising.
