Tyra Banks and Lindsay Lohan return to Life-Size 2 this holiday season. The Christmas movie picks up from the 2000 Disney film Life-Size, where Lindsay Lohan played 11-year-old Casey Stuart. Grieved over the loss of her mother, Casey decided to cast a spell to bring her mother back to life. Instead, her fashion doll Eve (played by Tyra Banks) came to life.
The made-for-television Disney movie was a hit with kids and tweens and news that Banks is reprising the role and Lindsay Lohan will also return is going viral.
There was previous confusion regarding Lindsay Lohan’s return and though it’s unclear how much of a role she will have in Life-Size 2, she is definitely returning.
As Life-Size focused on the story of Casey Stuart, Life-Size 2 will focus on Grace Manning, played by Francia Raisa.
Disney/Freeform released a description about the upcoming movie. You may read it below.
“Grace Manning (Francia Raisa) is the 20-something CEO of Marathon Toys, a huge toy company started by her mother that is most famous for manufacturing the iconic Eve doll. Grace is also in the middle of her quarter-life crisis, realizing she is in over her head as CEO. To make matters worse, her wild-child ways are causing the company’s stock to plummet. With the help of her young next-door neighbor, Grace’s old Eve doll (Tyra Banks) magically awakens to help get Grace back on track and give her the confidence to be the woman and leader Eve knows Grace can be.”
