The new movie Space Jam: A New Legacy is only months away from being released, but an exciting casting announcement was just made!
Warner Bros. just revealed that Zendaya has joined the cast as Lola Bunny, according to Entertainment Weekly. The first trailer, featuring NBA star LeBron James, was also released and you can watch it below.
Space Jam: A New Legacy director Malcolm D. Lee previously revealed that Lola Bunny will have a different look in the new film to make her more “fully-realized.”
“Lola was not politically correct,” he previously told EW about the previous portrayal of the character. “This is a kids’ movie, why is she in a crop top? It just felt unnecessary, but at the same time there’s a long history of that in cartoons.”
