Zendaya is lending her voice to an iconic character on the upcoming film “Space Jam: A New Legacy.”
According to Entertainment Weekly, the Emmy-winning American actress and singer has been cast to voice Lola Bunny, a female rabbit who is a member of the Looney Tunes squad.
However, director Malcom D. Lee said one of his goals was to bring a “fully-realized” version of the iconic female cartoon character.
“Space Jam: A New Legacy” starring NBA legend LeBron James will be released in theaters and on HBO Max July 16.
The sequel comes more than two decades after “Space Jam” (1996) starring Michael Jordan was released.
The live-action and animated sports comedy tells a fictionalized story of how the Looney Tunes squad helped the basketball legend make an electrifying comeback after retiring from the NBA in 1993. – Margaret Claire Layug/RC, GMA News
