Sequels are pretty notorious for being hit or misses, but when I heard that there was going to be a Life-Size 2 starring Tyra Banks as Eve, I couldn’t help but get a little excited. I loved this movie as a child and the thought of it is making me a little nostalgic.
Banks has already been confirmed to be returning to her starring role as the literal life-sized doll, which is awesome! What else is awesome, you ask? Rumor has it that Lindsay Lohan will also be returning for the sequel as a grown up Casey, her character from the original film who magically brought her favorite toy to life.
In her interview on The Talk this past Tuesday, Tyra said she’s been “having conversations with Ms. Lohan” about the movie, which is definitely a good sign.
“Yes, and I want her to come back and I think that she does, too,” Banks said. “Actually, I know she does. So I really hope that she can be in it.” I hope so too, and I’m sure so many of my fellow ’90s kids are right there beside me. It’d be so cool to see how the characters we knew as children grew up with us. What are they up to? What are their lives like?
Variety reports that in the sequel Eve is “magically awoken to help a young woman learn to live and love again,” and “experience the ups and downs of life.” The film is said to be airing on Freeform in December 2018, as part of their “25 Days of Christmas” programming month. That’s not too far off, right?
