Much like its predecessor, the sequel will feature a basketball champion and icon- but this time, it's LeBron James and his son Dom. The movie centers around the fact that LeBron is having a hard time relating to his son. Producer Ryan Coogler said:
"The general idea was the examination of Black fatherhood and how fatherhood could be unique to LeBron James specifically. There are parents who want to push their kids to do certain things because this is what they do, but sometimes you have to look into a kid and be able to have an open mind and ear to help them become the thing they've dreamed of."
When the family gets trapped in a virtual space, LeBron must get them home safe by leading Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes gang to victory in the video game's championship.
