You Won't Believe These Cameos In The Space Jam: Legacy Trailer

The Looney Tunes aren't the only Warner Bros. characters who come out to play in the Space Jam: Legacy trailer. Unlike the original 1996 film which stuck to famous athletes, Bugs Bunny's crew, and Bill Murray, the new movie transports LeBron James to a digital WB multiverse teaming with characters from classic films like The Wizard of Oz and popular TV shows, including Game of Thrones. At one point, the trailer even hints that Hogwarts is right around the corner — one thing is certain, when Space Jam: Legacy begins streaming on HBO Max, spotting all of the famous faces is going to be half of the fun.

With so many pop culture Easter eggs packed into the two minute and 37 seconds long trailer, it's easy to miss a few of the cameos. The trailer kicks off with James heading into the Server-verse in order to find his son, and it quickly becomes clear this strange multiverse contains multitudes of characters from the WB's past and present. But first up, the famed basketball player meets his new teammates, including usual suspects like Bugs, Daffy, and Porky Pig, as well as deeper cut Looney Tunes characters like Gossamer and Foghorn Leghorn.

In between, the trailer is a virtual pop culture blender with references to everything from old school Bette Davis movies to The Mask. Read on to discover the Space Jam: Legacy trailer cameos you may have missed.

The Mystery, Inc. crew have tickets to the Space Jam, and they've brought along some Hanna-Barbera friends

Not to be outdone by the Looney Tunes, the Hanna-Barbera toons make a good showing, as well. Sadly, the trailer doesn't actually feature Scooby dribbling a basketball — what a sight that would be — but the Mystery Inc. van pops up twice. At the start of the trailer, the van is seen speeding toward the game alongside the likes of Fred Flinstone, Yogi and Boo Boo, and Magilla Gorilla.

Later on, once the game actually starts, Fred and Daphne can be seen leaning against the van in a crowd shot. Additionally, if you look closely, you can also spot the Jetsons zip by in the beginning of the trailer as James is falling past different worlds in the Server-verse. Given the sheer number of cameos in the trailer alone, it looks like Hanna-Barbera fans are in for a treat once the movie officially drops in theaters and on HBO Max.

Gotham's villains, Pennywise the clown, and flying monkeys, oh my!

The Space Jam is clearly a big draw for the more villainous members of the extended Warner Bros. universe. It seems Gotham's most dangerous villains have even been given a day-pass from Arkham Asylum for the big event. If you keep your eyes peeled on the big crowd scene that begins around the 1:46 mark, you'll spot the likes of the 1989 version of Joker, Penguin, and Mr. Freeze (no sign of Batman beyond the Bat-Signal though).

Elsewhere, other villains abound. It seems we finally know where It's Pennywise goes when he's not tormenting Derry: Intergalactic basketball games. The menacing clown is seen standing behind the movie's big bad Al-G Rhythm (Don Cheadle) and alongside one of the flying monkeys from The Wizard of Oz. But they're not the only bad guys who have come out to watch the game of the century, there's also at least one character from Mad Max: Fury Road on-hand, too.

The Droogs from Clockwork Orange are hoping for a bit of the old ultra-violence at the Space Jam

File this cameo under characters you never thought would appear in a movie alongside Bugs Bunny and Fred Flintstone: the Droogs from A Clockwork Orange are just super casually hanging out at the big game watching James and the Looney Tunes take on a team known as The Goon Squad.

And hey, if that's not weird enough for you, they're not the only classic movie characters in the crowd. On Twitter, writer and director Ben Mekler pointed out that Bette Davis' Whatever Happened to Baby Jane character also appears to be cheering on one of the teams alongside Al-G Rhythm. Additionally, there might just be an entire world devoted to the early days of Warner Bros. in this multiverse. If you watch closely at the start of the trailer, James falls past multiple words, one of which is a black-and-white homage to films like Casablanca.

Game of Thrones' The Night King is alive and well in Space Jam: Legacy

There are multiple references to Game of Thrones in Space Jam: Legacy's trailer, including an entire world devoted to the citizens of Westeros. But the best nod to the HBO juggernaut comes in the form of The Night King, who's not only alive, but also enjoying watching the Looney Tunes play basketball. That level of trippiness is impressive, even for a Space Jam movie.

Are you more of a Westworld fan? Fear not, the cowboys from the HBO franchise have also made their way into this strange, but also kind of brilliant trailer. They're joined by an assortment of other random characters including, but definitely not limited to: a Man in Black from Men in Black, a handful of Thundercats, the titular character from Jim Carrey's The Mask, King Kong, and one of the guys from Mad Max: Fury Road.

Buckle in, pop culture aficionadas, because Space Jam: Legacy will be absolutely filled to the brim with famous characters from film and television when it premieres in theaters and on HBO Max on July 18.
