Last week, Warner Bros. released our first look at the highly anticipated remake of the iconic animation masterpiece Space Jam called Space Jam A New Legacy, starring Lebron James. While we fully expected that by the movie’s very nature, that the classic Looney Tunes such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Taz, and Lola Bunny were going make their appearance, but what was pleasantly surprising was the inclusion of a jaw-dropping amount of cameos from some of our favorite Warner Bros. properties.
There are so many appearances and nods to old Hanna Barbera cartoons, old Batman movie, and TV show characters, familiar monsters, robots, and straight-up Game of Thrones characters (remember that show?) that trying to keep track of them all will make your head spin.
So thankfully, we did all the work for you and painstakingly, hit pause and play multiple times and made note of all the different characters and references littered throughout the trailer so you don’t have to! Ain’t I a stinker?
Here are every character cameos and nods that we were able to find in the Space Jam: A New Legacy trailer!
In this opening bit where Lebron talks to his fictional son (Ceyair J Wright), we see a statue of Marvin the Martian in the display case behind them. Right next to him on the very left of the screen is Dot from Animaniacs!
Here’s a pairing I’d never thought I’d see, The Iron Giant from the 1999 animated film of the same name and Drogon from Game of Thrones!
Later on, we get this big scene that totally floored me because we see so many classic Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Characters share the screen for the first time since probably, the Laff-A-Lympics!
Roughly from left to right we have the Flintstones’ Wilma and Fred as well as their neighbors Betty, Barney, and their son Bam Bam suspiciously outside of their rock mobile. There’s also Magilla Gorilla riding his unicycle on a tight rope and Cheetarah from Thundercats flipping in the background. That big yeti-looking thing is Migo from a lesser-known modern animated film Smallfoot released in 2018. Above Migo are The Jetsons in their flying car and Captain Caveman from his recent appearance in Scoob! Flying high above. Continuing on there’s the two picnic basket swiping bears Yogi and Boo Boo and finally on the rightmost is JabberJaw.
Moving on to this scene we have an agent from the Matrix right next to a Dothraki Warrior from Game of Thrones. Right in front is Don Cheadle, who plays the main antagonist AI of the film and right beside him is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Mister Freeze in all his bathrobed glory from Batman and Robin 1997. You can also spot the hat and green skin of Wicked Witch of the West and a flying monkey from The Wizard of Oz chilling right next to Pennywise the Clown from IT. I’d hate to be seated in that area, I’ll tell you what.
Here is what I think is the big money shot filled to the brim with insane cameos to fan-favorite characters.
So roughly from the top left going counter-clockwise is Peter Potamus and his hot air balloon, Space Ghost!, Velma and Scooby on top of the Mystery Machine, Yogi Bear, Magilla Gorilla, and Fred’s Work dinosaur from Flintstones. At first, I couldn’t tell who the giant superhero guy with the purple cape in the front row was but cursory Googling has revealed that that is Frankenstein Jr. and the Impossibles—it’s for someone, I guess. To his right, you can see Penelope Pitstop and her giant pink car from Wacky Races, King Kong’s head in the foreground, Another Flintones Dino; The Iron Giant’s hand cheering, and the Jetsons Car above that.
In this scene where this lightning-fast robot from the Goon Squad shows his moves, you can see in the top left, what looks like Willy Wonka from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory sitting on the cliff. Underneath the rim from left to right we got, 1960s Robin from the old Adam West Batman, a generic clown guy, and Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman from the 1989 Batman movie right next to 66’ Catwoman.
Right above them, you can see the rock gorilla Igoo and Gloop and Gloop from the Herculoids!—I got a real kick out of that one. Continuing that upper row we can see Jabberjaw yet again followed by Rosie, Astro, and Elroy from the Jetsons. Below them, you’ll find a set of generic criminal-looking people with some sort of uniform which I was able to trace back to the Penguin’s G.O.O.N. crew from 1960s Batman show (which explains the writing on their shirts).
Here’s a cool scene as Lebron elevates for this jam, on the left of the crowd we can see the 1966 Penguin and Dany Devitto’s Penguin from Batman 1989 hanging out and enjoying the action. And right in the middle of them, we see my favorite cameo so far, The Mask from the 1994 Jim Carrey Film of the same name. That takes me back! We also get a better look at some of the cameos we’ve already covered here too.
Finally here’s the big ender and where the most surprising cameos happen to be: there’s the Night King and White Walkers from… remember them from that old show that we used to love?
There’s the Work Dino and Captain Caveman again on the top right. We also get a good view of the full Mystery Inc. crew here with Fred, Velma, Scooby, Shaggy, Daphne, and the Mystery Machine as well as the Blue Falcon and Dynomutt with the new designs straight out of Scoob!
On the right side in the very front, are the Clockwork Orange characters which is a weird addition to such a kid-friendly movie.
There’s also a war boy from Mad Max looking around right next to some more Game of Thrones guards.
Here’s a big one, that I haven’t seen being reported, The Man in Black from Westworld! I looked it up and Westworld is actually a Warner Bros. product, which explains the appearance of several cowboys in the crowd as well as the appearance of a central figure in the series The Man In Black played by Ed Harris. Who knew he was a basketball fan?
On the top left of the crowd, we also see Cheetara again right next to the Lion-o from the Thundercats! (the belt gives him away).
Then there’s also this figure who to the best of my guesses could possibly be the Martian Manhunter?
I’m sure we missed a few characters here and there so make sure to let us know in the comments below!
