LeBron James hits red carpet for world premiere of Space Jam: A New Legacy in LA with wife Savannah and daughter Zhuri by his side
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.
