People Editorial Guidelines Published on July 1, 2021 03:33 PM Share Tweet Pin Email We have one question for LeBron James: red pill or blue pill? The basketball great, 36, channels Keanu Reeves in The Matrix in a new clip from the upcoming live-action/animated film Space Jam: A New Legacy. At the start of the short bit of footage, police break into a mostly deserted warehouse — only to find Speedy Gonzales and the seemingly innocent Granny, the latter of whom coos, "Can't a lady check her Twitter?" The duo then team up against the cops, with Granny (dressed in all leather, just like Carrie-Anne Moss' Matrix character, Trinity) and Speedy both defying gravity to overtake their oppressors with slow-motion ease. Soon, James — dressed as Reeves' Neo — and a very convincing Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), a.k.a. Bugs Bunny, arrive to help, only to find they missed the action due to Granny and Speedy's quick work.

Zendaya's voice came through her character as she said, "When it's crunch time, the ball is going to be in my paws." Following the video, the Euphoria Emmy winner's name started trending online, with fans excited to hear Zendaya's voice as the famous bunny. The 24-year-old was announced as a member of the cast in April, set to portray a completely reimagined version of Lola.
