LeBron James has given fans a sneak peek at the jersey he'll be sporting when he stars in Space Jam: A New Legacy.
Three-time NBA champion James has remained tight-lipped about details regarding the sequel.
But a video shared by The LeBron James Family Foundation on Monday has given fans a glimpse of the kit.
With 'Tune Squad' across the front and the Looney Tunes circles to the circle, the 35-year-old approaches the camera wearing the powder blue shirt and shorts looking ready for action.

While many loved seeing the former Chicago Bulls man mix it up with the animated cast, James told The Hollywood Reporter last year that the film means more than that to him.

"It's so much bigger. I'd just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don't just give up on their dreams. And I think Ryan [Coogler] did that for a lot of people."
He also explained that director Coogler was a huge draw for him, expressing admiration for his vision for superhero movie Black Panther.
"I loved his vision for Black Panther," James said.
He continued to say that, growing up as a kid in Akron, Ohio, there were no black superheroes, adding: "So for Ryan to be able to bring that to kids, it's amazing."
Space Jam: A New Legacy is currently set for release on July 16, 2021.
