The Looney Tunes character, Lola Bunny, who first appeared in the 1996 live action animated comedy Space Jam will be returning for the sequel. Lola will reportedly bring the DC Extended Universe with her.
According to new information revealed by director Malcolm Lee, Space Jam: A New Legacy will see Lola, post forging a new life away from Bugs Bunny thanks to the help of a group of very strong and powerful women who Wonder Woman fans will surely recognize.
We wanted to meet her with the Amazons, trying to find greener pastures for herself, As she says in the movie, there’s more to her than just being a Tune.”
Lee also revealed that the Wonder Woman angle is just one part of the sequel’s use of the WB catalog.
The revelation that Lola lives on Wonder Woman’s home island of Themyscira should yield some interesting reactions from DC Comics fans. However, that’s nothing new for the Space Jam character who dominated social media earlier in the week after Lee revealed that Lola will be “less sexualized” for the sequel.
“This is 2021. It’s important to reflect the authenticity of strong, capable female characters,”
Lee also emphasized that Lola would be less of a sex object for Bugs and more of a dynamic team player who’s possibly as good as LeBron James.
We are excited about the sequel. What do you think about the DCEU abd Looney Tunes crossover?
