Next summer's release of LeBron James' anticipated "Space Jam" sequel won't be limited to the big screen.

Warner Bros. announced Thursday that its 2021 theatrical slate, including "Space Jam: A New Legacy," will be available on the streaming platform HBO Max concurrent with the films' global cinema release, according to Deadline's Anthony D'Alessandro.

The films will be available on HBO Max for a one-month period, after which they'll continue to play in theaters.

"Space Jam: A New Legacy" is set to release July 16, 2021. James will be joined in the film by Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Klay Thompson, Diana Taurasi, Nneka Ogwumike, "Star Trek: Discovery" actress Sonequa Martin-Green, and Academy Award nominee Don Cheadle.

In his farewell speech from the "Space Jam" set that leaked in August, James said he grew up watching the original film and there was "no way" he could turn down the opportunity to be involved with the sequel.
