45 Easter Eggs In “Space Jam: A New Legacy” That You Might Have Missed – BuzzFeed
Alternative movie title: “Harry Potter Joins the Toon Squad.”
And the sheer number of cameos and Easter eggs in this movie will have your jaw hitting the floor.
Luckily the amateur detectives over on Twitter have helped us unpack the dozens of cameos, most of which come from the DEEP vault of Warner Brothers properties.
So here are the tweets with all the details:
We also got several old-school Looney Tunes Easter eggs like this pic of Yosemite Sam in the barber shop.
Or the appearance of the Nintendo Game Boy game Crazy Castle that starred Bugs Bunny.
As well as references to LeBron’s career.
And this from TNT, which something tells me was less planned ahead of time than the Nike spon.
My future husband, Steven Yeun, showed up for a brief cameo as a Warner Bros. executive.
And Don Cheadle dressed up as Bill Belichick.
The WB Water Tower can be seen in the background.
Since Warner Bros. owns DC Comics, we saw plenty of DC characters pop up, such as when Bugs and LeBron fought crime as Batman and Robin.
Or when Batman himself showed up in the audience for the final basketball game.
As can two different versions of Batman’s nemesis the Penguin.
And even this random guy from Batman Returns is here.
Warner Bros. took advantage of their Harry Potter properties and included Lord Voldemort as a basketball spectator.
And we learn that LeBron is actually a Hufflepuff.
And then the War Boys show up to the game.
They inserted Yosemite Sam into Casablanca.
And of course repurposed the film’s iconic line.
People were especially excited about the GoT references (and of course the dragons).
King Kong and The Iron Giant watched LeBron battle his son on the court.
Although this version of the Iron Giant appears to actually be from Ready Player One.
The Gremlins also showed up.
…who treated us with the catchphrase from Friday Night Lights, the show where he got his start.
