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:
