Welcome To The Tune Squad, Zendaya!

In the last twenty-four hours, Entertainment Weekly has revealed Zendaya will join the voice cast as Lola Bunny.

The film will introduce a “fully-realised” version of Lola that is not done in the original Space Jam. It notes she has f a ‘cartoon’ feel.

Lola’s portrayal will have a “cartoon-feel” that did not come across in the original film. She will also not sport a crop top like in the OG Space Jam

According to Lawrence’s interview with the film’s director, Malcolm D. Lee, the portrayal of Lola in the first movie is not “politically correct”. She also will be “fully realised”. To those wondering what that means, she is not sexualised and is allowed to be a female cartoon character. Like her male counterparts, she will wear the same uniform with no modifications.

When we meet Lola, she will be in training on Themsyscira with Wonder Woman.

Warner Brothers Properties Go Wild

The trailer drops a slew of cameos from other Warner Brothers properties, which LeBron will encounter. Some of these include Fred Flinstone, Yogi Bear and Boo Boo.

Space Jam became a staple for us when we were at school. Whenever rainy Wednesdays occurred, we’d watch a movie in the school hall. The original movie was one of two. Film number two was Flubber.

Finally, Space Jam: A New Legacy is the first time the Looney Tunes appear on the big screen since 2003’s Looney Tunes: Back in Action.
