We’ve finally got some more details about the upcoming Space Jam sequel, including its official title, thanks to NBA star LeBron James.

The Lakers player took to Instagram Thursday to make the reveal. In a video, James showed off a hat featuring the apparent new logo and title of the Looney Tunes sequel: Space Jam: A New Legacy. The film’s official Twitter reposted the video later that day, seemingly confirming the news.

James captioned the video “2021” alluding to a release date. The NBA player’s production company SpringHill Entertainment previously announced the movie release date as July 16, 2021.

This isn’t the first time James has tried his hand at acting. Aside from the usual commercials, the LA Lakers star had a role in Amy Schumer’s 2015 movie Trainwreck, as well as small parts in TV shows such as Entourage and SpongeBob SquarePants.

James’ production company SpringHill Entertainment is producing the film alongside Warner Bros., which produced the original.
