On Saturday, the Twitter handles of Space Jam: A New Legacy has confirmed that Zendaya is set to voice the role of Lola Bunny in the sequel to Space Jam. The tweet said, “Welcome to the Jam @Zendaya.”

 

Lola Bunny, as almost everybody knows, is Bugs Bunny’s girlfriend. In the original Space Jam in 1996 she exhibits her awesome basketball skills but she’s almost gets injured in the final game and Bugs Bunny rescues her.

 

Earlier this year, her new character design provoked a lot of comment, controversy and backlash from social media users.

 

 

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, director Malcolm Lee said that in March the redesign was made as a result of a reconsideration of Space Jam — the original film. He said that the 1996 Lola was not “politically correct.”

 

He said that the movie was a kid’s movie and questioned why she was in a crop top. He felt that it was unnecessary but reiterated that there was a long history of that in cartoons.

 

Lee also explained that he wanted the newer iteration of Lola to “reflect the authenticity of strong, capable females.” The Emmy award winning actress is right person to reflect these values. Zendaya with her talent and voice will definitely be an asset in the film.

 

The sequel Space Jam: A New Legacy features LeBron James NBA superstar while the 1996 cult classic featured baseball legend Michael Jordan.

 

The official Twitter handle of the sequel also posted:
