Life-Size Sequel is Finally Happening with Tyra Banks

"Eve's great, no matter where she goes..."

Tyra Banks will officially revive her iconic role as the doll who magically came to life in Disney Channel's Life-Size, nearly two decades after the film first premiered in 2000. Freeform announced this week that Life-Size 2 will be coming to TV, but it's scheduled to debut for the holidays in December 2018--patience, everyone.

"There is no one else that can play Eve but me, thank you very much," Banks told Variety, speaking to the news. "I'm just joking with you but yes, I am going to be Eve."

The original comedy centered around a Barbie-like doll, named Eve (Banks), who enters the real world after a young girl (Lindsay Lohan) accidentally casts a spell intended to bring her mother back to life. Lohan's involvement with Life-Size followed The Parent Trap, but came before her career-breaking roles in Freaky Friday and Mean Girls--the made-for-TV fantasy didn't launch the 11-year-old into superstardom, but it garnered her and Banks a cult-like following.

"One thing is it's a very precious project to the Disney Channel so they've been doing a lot of re-writes and making sure that this script is really right," Banks said. "I'm really excited about it. I think Life-Size is so popular that it can be a feature film because it has such a cult following, so I'm really interested to see what the ratings are going to do for that. I think it's going to be a blockbuster on TV."
