I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise that the Looney Tunes characters are going to be CGI in the SPACE JAM sequel, as oppsed to hand-drawn cel animation like in the original.

Yeah, because he's a "rapist" now.

Funnily enough, my cousin brought this up at Thanksgiving dinner like over ten years ago before everyone else started talking about this, lol.

You know, when you've got a cast consisting of Samuel L. Jackson, Salma Hayak, Antonio Banderez, and Morgan Freeman, Ryan Reynolds sticks out like a sore thumb almost as strangely as Ray Romano in a cast consisting of Joe Pesci, Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Harvey Keitel.

The fact that sister molester and poor woman's pornographer Lena Dunham is not only a thing again, but directing a live-action Polly Pocket movie is rather disturbing.

I know we've discussed this before, but maaan . . . after seeing a new trailer for SPACE JAM 2 that was essentially nothing but marketing Zendaya as Lola, that only emphasized how much her voice does not fit that character . . . I know people complained the original Lola Bunny lacked any actual personality, but honestly, Zendaya's Lola sounds phoned in: wooden and emotionless.

I hate that Kath Souice got screwed by WB at the 11th hour.

She's long been one of my all-time favorite voice actresses, so yeah, this just really irks me.

Like I said, this seems to be a case similiar to THE JETSONS MOVIE back in the 80s, where instead of Janey Waldo, they brought in Tiffany to voice Judy, since she was such a huge pop star at the time, and it seemed like it was almost purely for marketing.

And now I'll add Steve Martin and Martin Short solving mysteries with . . . Selena Gomez, who apparently is acting again, yeah, I forgot that was a thing.
