Zendaya Will Voice Lola Bunny in Space Jam Sequel
Space Jam: A New Legacy has added Zendaya as the voice of Lola Bunny.
Director Malcom D. Lee told Entertainment Weekly he hopes to make Lola Bunny a more powerful character than she was in the original 1996 movie.
“We reworked a lot of things, not only her look, like making sure she had an appropriate length on her shorts and was feminine without being objectified, but gave her a real voice,” he explained. “For us, it was, let’s ground her athletic prowess, her leadership skills, and make her as full a character as the others.”
The sequel will be released on HBO Max and in theaters July 16th.
