What is the Real Reason Behind Zendaya Not Attending Venice Film Festival?

Zendaya is not going to attend the Venice International Film Festival red carpet for the year 2023. Her fans were disappointed and did not like this as they had expected to see her before her movie Challengers release. Not just that, the film release has also been postponed due to some reasons. Let’s talk more about it in detail. 

Why Zendaya Won’t Attend Venice Film Festival?

The release of her upcoming movie, Challengers, has been postponed to April 2024. So with reference to the delayed movie release, she won’t be attending the international film festival in Venice this year. All these delays are somehow related to the SAG-AFTRA – Screen Actors-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists Strike. 

Confirmed News

The organization which handles everything related to the Venice Film Festival is La Biennale di Venezia. They have also confirmed the news that Zendaya won’t be attending the film festival due to some delays and technicalities. In addition, it was also shared that the decision was from the production team, which is why the film will not be premiered in the coming film festival. 

The Film: Challengers

The movie is a romantic drama involving Tennis throughout the storyline. The actors playing lead roles in this film are Mike Faise and Josh O’Conner, alongside Zendaya. Unfortunately, the film has been pushed from the 2023 schedule, and now it no longer has a buzzing premiere launch through the International Venice Film Festival. 

Zendaya plays the role of a former tennis prodigy Tashi Duncan. She becomes the coach, and her husband is on a losing strike. There are so many exciting characters intertwined with each other throughout various Tennis matches. The producer of the film is Amy Pascal through the Pascal Pictures banner. Other producers include Zendaya, Guadagnino, and more. 

Earlier, the film was scheduled to release by 15th September 2023. But that plan hasn’t gone according to the schedule. As per the latest news, the film Challengers will be released on 26th April 2024. So fans waiting for their release will have to wait a lot longer. 

Zendaya’s Popularity

Zendaya is one of the most popular leading actresses who rose to fame at a young age with many prominent roles in her career. She has also been on the list of the 100 most influential people globally. Her recent role in Spider-Man: Homecoming has been prevalent. She is also the youngest winner of the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
