SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME Star Zendaya To Voice Lola Bunny In SPACE JAM: A NEW LEGACY

Following this morning's trailer, a new report has revealed that Spider-Man: No Way Home star Zendaya will be voicing Lola Bunny in Warner Bros.' upcoming LeBron James-starrer, Space Jam: A New Legacy

After the debut of its very Ready Player One-esque trailer this morning, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Primetime Emmy-winner Zendaya (Spider-Man: No Way Home; Dune) has joined the cast of Space Jam: A New Legacy as the voice of Lola Bunny. 

She joins a cast headlined by current Los Angeles Lakers forward and 4x NBA Champion LeBron James (Trainwreck) with Looney Tunes Cartoons stars Jeff Bergman and Eric Bauza reprising their roles as Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, respectively. 

The supporting cast will feature Academy Award-nominee Don Cheadle (Avengers: Endgame) as the main villain, Sonequa Martin-Green (Star Trek: Discovery) as James' wife, and Ceyair J. Wright (American Skin) as James' eldest son. Basketball co-stars remain a mystery for now, but the cast is rumored to feature the likes of Klay Thompson, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, Kyle Kuzma, Diana Taurasi, Nneka Ogwumike, and Chiney Ogwumike, amongst several other NBA and WNBA stars.

Malcolm D. Lee (Night School) - who hadn't seen the original Space Jam until two years ago - is directing and Ryan Coogler (Black Panther) is producing the upcoming sequel, which will star the 6x NBA Finals runner-up James in the lead role, doing his best to follow in the footsteps of the legendary Michael Jordan, a.k.a. the greatest basketball player of all-time, who starred in the original 1996 classic. 

Welcome to the Jam! NBA champion and global icon LeBron James goes on an epic adventure alongside timeless Tune Bugs Bunny with the animated/live-action event “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” from director Malcolm D. Lee and an innovative filmmaking team including Ryan Coogler and Maverick Carter. This transformational journey is a manic mashup of two worlds that reveals just how far some parents will go to connect with their kids. When LeBron and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I., LeBron must get them home safe by leading Bugs, Lola Bunny and the whole gang of notoriously undisciplined Looney Tunes to victory over the A.I.’s digitized champions on the court: a powered-up roster of professional basketball stars as you’ve never seen them before. It’s Tunes versus Goons in the highest-stakes challenge of his life, that will redefine LeBron’s bond with his son and shine a light on the power of being yourself. The ready-for-action Tunes destroy convention, supercharge their unique talents and surprise even “King” James by playing the game their own way.

Space Jam: A New Legacy will hop into theaters and HBO Max on July 16
