Alternative movie title: “Harry Potter joins the Toon team.”
And the sheer number of comos and Easter eggs in this movie makes your jaw hit the floor.
Fortunately, amateur detectives over 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:
To start, there was a look at Big Chungus (aka Fat Bugs Bunny), the famous internet meme.
We also got several old-school Looney Tunes Easter eggs like this picture of Yosemite Sam in the barber shop.
Or the look of the Nintendo Game Boy game Crazy Castle who starred Bugs Bunny.
As well as references to LeBron’s career.
And this from TNT, as something tells me, was less planned in advance than the Nike chip.
My future husband, Steven Yeun, appeared briefly as Warner Bros. Director.
And Don Cheadle dressed up as Bill Belichick.
The WB water tower can be seen in the background.
Da Warner Bros. owns DC Comics, so we saw lots of DC characters show up, like when Bugs and LeBron fought crime like Batman and Robin.
Or when Batman himself appeared in the audience for the last 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 for the game.
They imprisoned Yosemite Sam in Casablanca.
And of course, the film’s iconic line rebuilt.
People were especially excited about GoT references (and of course the dragons).
King Kong and Iron Giant saw LeBron fight his son on the field.
Although this version of Iron Giant actually appears to be from Ready Player One.
Gremlins also showed up.
… who treated us with the slogan from Friday evening light, the show where he started.
