The Space Jam sequel now has an official title.

LeBron James posted a video of himself wearing a hat on his Instagram feed Thursday with the logo for Space Jam: A New Legacy.

Previously known as Space Jam 2, the live action-animation hybrid will star the NBA legend and Don Cheadle.

The film’s official Twitter account reposted James and changed its Twitter avatar to the official logo.

Malcolm D. Lee will helm the film, after a shakeup last summer saw him replace Terence Nance (Random Acts of Flyness). Lee’s credits include Girls Trip, Night School, and The Best Man franchise.

Producers on the sequel include Ryan Coogler, Duncan Henderson, James and Maverick Carter for their SpringHill Entertainment banner.

The Warner Bros. film is a follow-up to the 1996 hit that starred Michael Jordan, NBA legends and Looney Tunes animated characters.

It earned $230 million worldwide, and became the highest grossing basketball movie of all time.

Space Jam: A New Legacy is expected to open on July 16, 2021.
