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."
