Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade gave some love to former Heat superstar LeBron James in an Instagram story on Tuesday.

The message was regarding James’ starring role in “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” which had its world premiere on Monday night.

The movie is one of James’ most recent business endeavors, and it’s sure to get a great deal of publicity from fans and the media.

The movie is set to get a wide release this Friday.

While James may spend some time this offseason promoting the movie, he will certainly be focused on the upcoming NBA season as well.

His Los Angeles Lakers were eliminated in the first round of the 2021 NBA Playoffs by the Phoenix Suns. Injuries plagued the team all year long. In the end, Los Angeles couldn’t get the job done.

James had a solid 2020-21 regular season. He averaged 25.0 points, 7.7 rebounds and 7.8 assists per game. The 17-time All-Star won two titles with Miami in 2012 and 2013.

LeBron James hits red carpet for world premiere of Space Jam: A New Legacy with wife and daughter

Daily Mail 13 July, 2021 - 07:00pm

By Kevin Kayhart For Dailymail.com

Space Jam: A New Legacy is set to premiere in U.S. theaters and on HBO Max simultaneously on Friday, July 16.

Four days ahead of its domestic debut, leading man LeBron James made it a family affair when he attended the world premiere of the live-action/animated sports comedy at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The film, with James playing a fictionalized version of himself, is the long-awaited follow-up to 1996's Space Jam starring basketball all-time great Michael Jordan.

James, 36, looked dapper in a fitted dark blue suit that he paired with a black dress shirt, tie, and dress shoes.

Being that he's starring in a film based around basketball, it was fitting that he choose to wear his world championship ring that he recently won with the LA Lakers last summer. 

His wife of nearly eight-years looked elegant in a green shoulder-less dress that accentuated her womanly curves.

Going strong: The couple will celebrate their eighth wedding anniversary on September 14 

She rounded out her ensemble by wearing green strappy heels and her dark tresses styled long but pushed back off her face.

The couple's only daughter looked adorable in a baby blue floral dress, which fell to just below her knees, with clear sandals and her raven locks with plenty of natural curls and right side part.

The Jameses also have two sons LeBron Jr., otherwise known as Bronny, 16, and Bryce 14, although it appears they were not on hand for the event.   

James, a four-time NBA champion, also shared the spotlight on the red carpet with director Malcom D. Lee and co-stars Don Cheadle, Cedric Joe, Sonequa Martin-Green, Ceyair Wright, and Harper Alexander.

James, Cheadle, Martin-Green and Khris Davis headline the live-action roles in the film, while Zendaya, Jeff Bergman and Eric Bauza are among the Looney Tunes voice cast.

The movie, which is from James' SpringHill Entertainment production company, is centered around a high-stakes inter-dimensional basketball game that James must play alongside the Looney Tunes characters to win his son back from an evil computer algorithm. 

NBA players Anthony Davis, Klay Thompson, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul and Kyle Kuzma make cameo appearances in the film along with WNBA players Diana Taurasi, Nneka Ogwumike and Chiney Ogwumike.

"Space Jam: A New Legacy" Cast on Following Your Dreams

Zendaya Was Surprised By Uproar Over Lola’s New Look In ’Space Jam 2’

UPROXX 12 July, 2021 - 12:20pm

This is a movie about cartoon animals playing basketball.

Anyway, EW also spoke to Zendaya, who sounded equally taken aback by the dreaded “discourse” surrounding Lola (she voices Bugs’ female counterpart in A New Legacy). “I didn’t know that was going to happen either! I definitely know we love her, but I didn’t know it was going to be as much of a focus as it was,” the Euphoria actress said. “But I understand, because she’s a lovable character. She’s very important, so I get it.”

“She’s special to a lot of people and their childhoods and they’ve been able to grow up with her, so I get that sense of protection. I was like, listen, just as long as I did what the director and the producers and everybody wanted me to do, I’m just here to offer my services. [Laughs] No, but I felt really grateful just to have the opportunity.”

Everyone needs to chill out and focus on what really matters: Porky Pig’s rapping.

Space Jam: A New Legacy opens in theaters and on HBO Max on July 17.
