And now Zendaya, who voiced the character, is responding.
She spoke with Entertainment Weekly and said, “I didn’t know that was going to happen either! I definitely know we love her, but I didn’t know it was going to be as much of a focus as it was.”
She added, “But I understand, because she’s a lovable character. She’s very important, so I get it.”
Director Malcolm D. Lee also responded and said, “I had no idea that people would be that up in arms about a bunny not having boobs. Listen, I understand people don’t want things to change, but I think we needed some evolution with her, not by objectifying her but by making her strong and still feminine.”
