Space Jam fans are in uproar about Lola Bunny’s new look in the sequel, A New Legacy.

The character has been reimagined by director Malcolm D Lee to have a less sexualised appearance.

However, not everybody is pleased about it.

Watch the clip below to find out what Rotten Tomatoes thinks of the new Space Jam movie… 

In a chat with Entertainment Weekly, he said: “I had no idea that people would be that up in arms about a bunny not having boobs.

“Listen, I understand people don’t want things to change, but I think we needed some evolution with her, not by objectifying her but by making her strong and still feminine.

“And, yes, we had all these other women who were like, ‘Oh, you can’t be strong and have big boobs?!’ Sure you can, but we’re talking about a cartoon bunny, not women!”

Zendaya – who voices the character in the sequel – also had her say.

She said: “I didn’t know that [the backlash] was going to happen either!

“I definitely know we love her, but I didn’t know it was going to be as much of a focus as it was.

“But I understand, because she’s a lovable character. She’s very important, so I get it.”

She continued: “She’s special to a lot of people and their childhoods and they’ve been able to grow up with her, so I get that sense of protection.

“I was like, listen, just as long as I did what the director and the producers and everybody wanted me to do, I’m just here to offer my services.

“No, but I felt really grateful just to have the opportunity.”
