Why Zendaya Admires LeBron James, Plus: How She’s Fulfilling Her Dad’s Dream with ‘Space Jam’

Actress Zendaya is getting animated in “Space Jam: A New Legacy.”

“Extra’s” Jenn Lahmers spoke with a pumped Zendaya about the new movie, which is a reboot of the 1996 film with Michael Jordan. She said, “It’s an iconic film to be a part of.”

Zendaya is voicing Lola Bunny in “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” which also stars one of today’s biggest basketball superstars, LeBron James. She shared, “I've always been a fan of LeBron… He's an incredible athlete — that we know — but everything he has been able to do outside of that has been really special, and I love that because I love to do everything, too.”

Basketball actually runs in Zendaya’s family. She noted, “My mom is 6’4" so she played college basketball, and she loves to tell everybody how she broke records… Yeah, I was supposed to be a basketball player… My dad is still upset about that… So I can make up for it with this movie.”
