    I honestly didn't think this would ever come to fruition. It doesn't look terrible but trailers are deceiving. Hopefully this film can provide kids today the same excitement the original did for us 90's kids.

    WB leveraging their multiple IP's (pretty sure I even saw a Game of Thrones server in there), to essentially do nothing but act as window dressing, is a very 20XX approach that is going to get old fast. Pretty sure that Iron Giant was literally lifted straight out of Ready Player One.

      It passes the sniff test, I think they nailed the LoonyTunes physical humor, and it doesn't look like it takes itself seriously. I expect there's a solid heart-warming moral lesson at the end, and...

      My thoughts exactly! Only mild disappointment is that they went for cartoon LeBron rather than live action, before everything transitions to CGI - it would've been fun to have a bit of that iconic visual mashup before it switched over.

      IMO, it looks a little busy, but at the same time you're getting a space jam movie with ALL the properties, so it's going to be a little busy.

        If I had to guess theres going to be two scenes with all the IP's, one when LeBron is swooping around the server farm for the first time, then again one as everyone assembles for the game. I doubt the other properties will play any major roll other than as fans in the stands. I'm pretty sure I saw a couple Batman '66 villains in the stands for example. It will likely only be busy for those particular moments.
