Zendaya Makes Her Debut As Lola Bunny in ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ Clip (Watch)

Zendaya is teaming up with the Tune Squad to voice “Lola Bunny” in the upcoming movie, Space Jam: A New Legacy

On Sunday (June 6), ESPN released a surprise clip of the cast reenacting their own version of a “30 for 30” documentary. In the clip, we see Lola talking to Bugs Bunny about the squad.

She boasts about her leadership saying, “So cute to watch them bicker when everyone knows this is Lola’s team.” It cuts to Bugs looking confused. She continues talking about what it’s like working as a sidekick for LeBron James.

To no one’s surprise, the clip went viral. “Zendaya” became a trending topic on Twitter immediately!

People had many things to say about their first glimpse of the actress as Lola Bunny.

Some disagree with the Euphoria star’s casting, stating that voice actors should be more respected because non-voice actors don’t perform the same.

They said, “this is a prime example of how good voice actors are at their jobs and why they should be far more respected. you cannot just cast a popular actress in a voice role and expect her to be able to do the job at the same level of quality as a professional voice actor.”

Another user said, “Normalize hiring voice actors instead of just celebrity actors for these animation movies. Zendaya is literally playing Zendaya.”

One user is into it and thinks it may sound off due to the sound mixing possibly being unfinished.

She said, “Honestly I dig Zendaya as Lola. It sounds like this scene hasn’t been sound mixed properly? Judging by the music that continues through the cuts it’s not done. I bet the final product will be amazing!”
