Uncle Drew is getting an official movie. For those who may not know, Uncle Drew is the OG alter-ego of Kyrie Irving, (originally a Pepsi ad campaign concept that’s enjoyed a 5-year run) and the flick has a new trailer starring Lil Rel, Kyrie Irving, Tiffany Haddish, Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber and more.
Straight the trailer looks hilarious. You got Chris Webber looking like a tall preacher and Shaquille O’Neal as a kung fu master with a Wolverine haircut.
The premise is Lil Rel is fielding a team at the Rucker, and Uncle Drew is his centerpiece. But the deal is Uncle Drew pics the team. Did we mention Lisa Leslie, Reggie Miller and Nate Robinson also appear?
Uncle Drew is in theaters June 29. Watch the trailer below.
