Everyone remain calm, but something very big is happening.
The Life-Size sequel is officially in the works. We are not kidding.
Your favorite film about a doll coming to life will grace our screens in a sequel this year.
Rumors previously swirled regarding a sequel to the 2000 hit, but now it’s official.
Freeform greenlit the project, and Tyra Banks herself tweeted the announcement:
One word: LIFESIZE

I mean, can you even stand it?
In terms of plot, Variety reports that,
“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 the telepic that’s described by the network as a ‘fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie.’
Aside from Tyra in her signature role, no other casting announcement have been made. There’s no word yet if Lindsay Lohan will return, by Banks recently said she would love for the actress to be a part of it somehow. Speaking with E!, she said,
“I would love for Lindsay to do something. Like, Lindsay, the last time I saw you was, I don’t know how many years ago—Every time I see her she gives me a hug like it was back in the day, like she’s 10 years old again—I would love for you to come back and do something for Life-Size, will you? Will you?”
We hope she says yes!
Tyra will also serve as executive producer on the movie. Additionally, NBC recently announced that Tyra will host America’s Got Talent, replacing Nick Cannon. Not to mention that Banks is returning as the host of America’s Next Top Model. We are not mad about having more Tyra in our lives.
The film will air on Freeform on December 18, 2017, as part of Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas. EEP!
