LeBron James apparently couldn't contain his excitement, as the Los Angeles Lakers superstar promoted "first look" images of "Space Jam: A New Legacy" on his social media account.

In the movie, James will team up with Bugs Bunny and his Looney Tunes buddies against a virtual team of ballers, so James and his fictional son can return to the real world.

The flick is a sequel to the 1996 box-office hit "Space Jam", which starred Michael Jordan, who, according to Entertainment Weekly, was asked to do a sequel but declined. 

Unlike Jordan entering "Space Jam," James has had previous big-screen acting experiencing, having appeared in the Amy Schumer movie "Trainwrecked" in 2015. 

"Trainwrecked" director Judd Apatow said of James: "His acting is very strong and he has this hilarious take on how he wants todo it. He's funny from take 1."

"Space Jam: A New Legacy" is scheduled for release in July.
