Lola Bunny's upcoming “Space Jam” film has a new look.
The classic character, identified in the original “Space Jam” film with Michael Jordan, will return in a second version of the film with Lebanon James. The new version, titled “Space Jam: A New Legacy”, is not a sequel to the original, but features all the characters.
But Lola Bunny did the film's director Malcolm D. Due to the decisions made by Lee, he has made some changes in his appearance.

Speaking Weekly for fun, Lee said that he was caught off guard by Lola Bunny's “very erotic” portrayal. So he and the crew behind the film decided to “re-work” his appearance.
“It's 2021,” Lee said. “It is important to reflect the authenticity of strong, capable female characters.”
The change sparked a debate on Twitter, and Lola became a trending topic. Many felt that this step was not really needed.
I don't care if Lola Bunny dressed less sexy in Space Jam 2, but I'm incredibly tired of the idea that the way you communicate that a female character is to be taken seriously is to remove her breasts. From
