As we get closer to the release of Space Jam: A New Legacy, Warner Bros. has released a handful of new character posters, including our first look at Roadrunner and Speedy Gonzales in their spiffy new Toon Squad jerseys.
The new posters show star LeBron James along with key animated characters Bugs Bunny, Tweety, and the newly-redesigned Lola Bunny. Also included are their fellow toons Daffy Duck and Taz, as well as the previously-unseen Speedy Gonzales and Roadrunner.
Speedy has been the subject of some controversy in the movie’s production, with some claiming the character perpetuates negative stereotypes about Mexican people. Speedy’s voice actor Gabriel Iglesias has defended the character, however, and others have pointed out that the character is generally much-loved within the Spanish-speaking community.
