The director of “Space Jam: A New Legacy” “reworked” Lola Bunny’s role in the reboot – claiming he wasn’t comfortable with the “extremely sexual” way she appeared in the original in 1996.
The man behind the movie Malcolm D. Lee – who has worked on movies like Girls Trip, Undercover Brother, and Night School … he is too Spike LeeCousin !!
Now that he has taken over the reins of the legendary “Space Jam” franchise, Lee wanted to make sure Lola Bunny would be a strong role model for youth.
He told me, “This is the year 2021.” Entertainment Weekly. “It is important to reflect the authenticity of the strong and capable female characters.”
We’re back and check out Lola scenes from the original Space Jam movie and Lee has a hard point.
The scene in which Lola entered the basketball gym for the first time was recorded with exciting music – and the rest of the Tune Squad players are taken aback by her looks, they are literally paralyzed
Lola, after showing off her superb basketball skills, the Hunters walked out of the gym and blamed Bugs Bunny for previously referring to her as “The Puppet”.
So, what can we expect at LeBron James Reboot? Gone are the Lola shorts – they’ve been replaced by typical exercise equipment with compression shorts underneath.
It looks like the director was hoping to model Lula after a high-profile female model – which makes sense given the real-life of WNBA stars Diana Tourasi And the Nika Ogomik Both have major roles in the reboot.
For LeBron, the Lakers star talked about how important the movie is to him … and being able to share his own example of parenthood in a flick.
“There are parents who want to push their children to do certain things because that is what they do, but sometimes you have to look at a child and be able to have an open mind and ear to help him become the thing they dreamed of.”
