The kid in all of us is going crazy!

Set to hit theaters in July, LeBron James and his Tune Squad square off against Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard and the Goon Squad.

Here's some screen captures of Dame in the trailer, which has been viewed millions of times in its only hours old release.

Lillard is joined by Chris Paul, Draymond Green, Kyle Kuzma, Anthony Davis, Klay Thompson, Diana Taurasi and others with notable actors Don Cheadle and Sonequa Martin-Green in the sequel. The OG Space Jam with Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing and others was released in 1996. 

Seeing Lillard featured in the trailer confirms what the Blazers point guard said all along about his role in the movie: "It's significant, it's not a cameo."

Lillard previous described his experience filming the movie: 

"That was different," Lillard said back in July 2019 after filming. "You all know I've always had a babyface, so this season I grew a beard out, it took me like six months to grow it. I show up on the set, they make me shave it off for the animation. That's why I look like this now. It was bare-faced for the animation, 15-hour days, showing up on the set at 6 a.m., leaving at 9 p.m. It was long."

 

"I'm not going to say it was fun, eventually it was fun, and now I'm happy I did it knowing that I was a part of something like that."

"I think it's going to be great."
