Director Bryan Singer has announced via his Instagram that actress Lana Condor has been cast as everyone’s favorite mutant mallrat/Bret Hart Fan, Jubilee.
Jubilee? You talkin’ X-Men Animated Series Jubilee?
The very same. Jubilee is a Chinese-American mutant with the power to create energy blasts and rock the hell out of yellow trench coats. Most people probably know her from the wonderfully 90’s X-Men cartoon. She’s actually appeared on film before, making cameos in the original X-Men Trilogy, as played by Katrina Florence and Kea Wong, but never having a speaking role.
Here’s hoping at least one “radical!” or “gag me with a spoon!” makes it into her dialogue.
Lana Condor as Jubilee joins newcomers Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler.
