Life-Size Sequel Confirmed

Life-Size Sequel, Starring Tyra Banks, Coming to Freeform as Holiday Event

Freeform wants you to shine bright, shine far and be a star all over again.

In advance of its upfront presentation on Wednesday, the network announced a sequel to Life-Size, the 2000 movie about a doll (played by Tyra Banks) that comes to life after a young girl (Lindsay Lohan) attempts to resurrect her mother via a magic spell.

Along with serving as an executive producer, Banks will reprise her role as living-doll Eve in the movie — appropriately titled Life-Size 2 — which will air as part of Freeform’s “25 Days of Christmas” lineup in 2018. Here’s a quick synopsis of the holiday sequel:

In the sequel, everyone’s favorite doll Eve has grown up. This time, she’s magically awoken to help a young woman learn to live and love again, and along the way, Eve herself will experience the ups and downs of real life in a fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie.

Curiously, the synopsis doesn’t reveal the name of the young woman in question. (I know it’s a long shot, but I’m crossing my fingers that it’s a grown-up version of Lohan’s character, even if she isn’t played by Lohan herself.)

If you’ve never experienced the magic that is Life-Size, here’s a clip from the original movie:

    Hoping Lindsay Lohan comes back as well.

  2. Ron says:

    I’m more excited for this than I should be. Also, I do hope they get Lindsay back. I know she isn’t the most reliable person to hire, but I’m just not sure how this works without her. I’m not saying she has to be a main character in this, but if her character doesn’t pop up somewhere, it’ll feel incomplete to me. And yeah, they could get someone else to play her, but it would be missing that nostalgia factor that I’m looking for in this. I mean, we all know Lindsay’s schedule is pretty free these days.

  3. BB says:

    For me personally, I’ll only watch it if Lindsay is involved. The original movie holds a very special place in my heart.

  4. Steven says:

    I was wondering what she was doing a thing Freeform’s upfront today.

  5. Ram510 says:

    The original was actually a pretty good movie. I’ll watch the 2nd.
    But why all the way in 2018, shouldn’t they be releasing the movie for the holiday season 2017?

    • Cassie says:

      Everything is already made for Holiday 2017. Even the 900 movies for Hallmark. For this, I’d rather them take their time to get it right, especially if Lindsay Lohan won’t be a part of it.

      Now can we get the Toothless or Model Behavior sequel?
