Open Post: Hosted By Lola Bunny’s New Figure In “Space Jam: A New Legacy”

March 5, 2021 / Posted by:

Horny millennials whose burgeoning libidos were informed by a cartoon rabbit’s tits are up in arms over the character redesign of Lola Bunny for the upcoming Space Jam remake. Gone are Lola’s basketball sized hooters and coochie cutter shorts, but she’s still got a ba-dunk-a dunk so what’s the problem? Newsweek reports that Malcolm D Lee, the director of Space Jam: A New Legacy, said he was shocked by how sexualized Lola was in the 1996 original so Lola’s new look is meant to “reflect the authenticity of strong, capable female characters.” Which is silly since we all know if you put eyelashes on it, people will get horny for an animated tuna sandwich. Great, now I’m horngry.

Here’s a look at the new Space Jam cast which stars LeBron James, Don Cheadle and a supposedly more capable Lola.

Newsweek reports:

In the original 1996 Looney Tunes movie, starring Michael Jordan, the anthropomorphic rabbit Lola Bunny had more of an hourglass figure and wore small shorts and a cropped sports top. Around the release of the first film in 1996, animator Tony Cervone said: “We kind of pumped her up more in the feminine attributes department.”

The new movie, which stars LeBron James and will be released in the U.S. on July 16, 2021, sees Lola Bunny transformed into a less sexualized character, with her body appearing less womanly and more rabbit-like. The new Lola has also switched out the mini shorts and sports bra for a baggy jersey and shorts outfit.

Here’s one of the more popular Tweets that sent the fur(ries) flying on Twitter. Important to note, the image on the left is fan art, OG Lola’s wasn’t quite so Kardashian in proportion. Newsweek says “the fanart drawing—which accentuates Lola Bunny’s features—is being shared widely on Twitter, making it appear as though the makeover is more extreme than it is.

Here’s what Lola looked like in the movie. As you can see from this clip in which Lola makes her Space Jam debut, anybody who watched this shit as a kid should probably be in jail, just as a precaution.

Here’s a sampling of what happens when erotic nostalgia goes unexamined:

And here’s what it looks like when it is examined:

The Lola Bunny discourse has been so fast & furryous that Jessica Rabbit got dragged into it and started trending on Twitter too. And that bitch isn’t even a real rabbit! Jesus I am tired. And a little horny if I’m being honest. I can’t stop thinking about Porky Pig’s tautly coiled little pink “tail” sticking out of those shorts. Something about that juxtaposed with the black ballet flats has got me all kinds of twisted.
