The incredible filming of Space Jam told in the Last Dance
In original version, it’s Zendaya, the new star Spiderman, which doubles Lola Bunny, an important character of the Toons, who was “desexualized” for this movie mixing live action and 3D animation. “We are in 2021, explained its director Malcolm D. Lee, during its production. It is important to reflect the authenticity of strong and capable female characters. … So we reworked a lot of things. First her look, to make sure she had an appropriate length of shorts and that she was feminine without being objectified. And then we wanted to give him a real voice. For us, the idea was to anchor the character in his athletic prowess, his leadership qualities. Make her a character as complete as the others. “
