“Space Jam: A New Legacy” hits theaters and HBO Max in the U.S. on July 16, and I’m really happy to share what Xbox and Warner Bros. have. Pictures are in stock to celebrate the film, as well as video game inspired by the film. We are so excited about the film that we are introducing three exclusive Xbox Wireless controllers and are planning a special update for Microsoft’s Coding Workshop. But before I get into that, let me take an inside look at the film- and inspired by the fans Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game.
It’s Tunes Vs. Goons in Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game
Last December, Xbox, LeBron James and Bugs Bunny – the team of ultimate dreams – invited fans of the real-life game to present their ideas for a Space Jam: A New Legacy-Inspired video. We are excited to present the same logo of the game, the art of the exclusive characters in the game, and the game as shown in the new trailer.
We were inundated with entries from all over the world, and many of them were really great. It was a tough decision. To create the final game, we mixed the ideas of two gamers: our winner of the youth competition, Narayan from India, and our winner of the adult competition, Ricky from the United States. Xbox and Warner Bros. they were fueled by Ricky’s idea of a classic “beat‘ em up ”mixed with gameplay mechanics that Narayan had suggested. The game is inspired by the upcoming live action / animation film with a deep reverence for the lively characters in it. Space Jam: A New Legacy and appreciation of the influence of Tune Squad’s pop culture, all in a moment reminiscent of the classic arcade games of the 90s.
Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game presents the beloved characters of Looney Tunes Bugs Bunny and Lola Bunny and the newest member of the Tune Squad, LeBron James, while facing the Goon Squad in a furious basketball game. A rogue artificial intelligence named Al G. Rhythm trapped our heroes in the Warner Bros. server, with little chance of escape. The Tune Team must fight through a virtual army of Al G.’s creation while also searching for four pieces of “Legacy Code” that will allow him access to the secret location of the evil villain. Al G. sent two members of the Goon Squad – The Brow and White Mamba – to plant the Tune Squad on track. Fortunately, our heroes have access to a variety of moves, including a special basketball, and some rather unique ones. Space Jam cards, to help them. But will his teamwork be enough to stop Al G. Rhythm’s evil plans?

Join the Fun with Microsoft Coding Workshops
One of the reasons why I am so passionate about this collaboration with Warner Bros. is that we have a leading position for the incredible creativity of hobbyist game creators around the world. It’s always so inspiring to think of the power of game development as a tool to unlock creative, academic or even career opportunities for people. So last December, we launched the Microsoft Store Space Jam: A New Legacy-inspired coding workshop with the help of Space Jam: A New Legacy characters, game industry professionals and athletes — including tennis phenomenon Coco Gauff and basketball player Brandan Wright. Go ahead to today and are so proud to share that, in addition to the new arcade-style game, thousands of students have completed the workshop. This was the opportunity for people to learn blockchain-based game design and coding, and it was so popular that students ages eight and older who missed the workshop will have another opportunity to participate when the class is presented. summer in the Microsoft Store virtual summer camp series, Summer Passport to Digital Entertainment. And for more experienced coders, older teens and adults, we’ve added three new modules to apply to Microsoft Learn.
