Lola and Bugs Bunny make a surprise appearance at the KISS-FM studios as part of their nationwide tour for Space Jam: A New Legacy that hits theatres this week.


As a long-time fan of Lola and Bugs Bunny, I was thrilled to welcome the duo to our KISS-FM studios as Space Jam: A New Legacy hits theatres this Thursday.

More than two decades after Space Jam opened, the fan-favorite sports comedy flick is finally getting a follow-up, starring LeBron James, including voice characterizations by Gabriel Iglesias as Speedy Gonzalez and Zendaya as Lola Bunny.

The new animated feature is a star-studded affair that brings back the nostalgia of Space Jam, which also includes appearances by Don Cheadle, Michael B. Jordan, Steve Harvey, Laurence Fishburne, and (spoiler alert), His Airness - Micheal Jordan will also be making an appearance.

Seeing Lola and Bugs Bunny IRL (in real life) made me feel like I was part of the Space Jam Universe and brought back so many nostalgic feels that I decided to share some fun facts about my favorite Bunny couple.
