After 17 years, a sequel to the Wonderful World of Disney TV movie “Life Size” is officially in the works, according to a news release from Freeform.
Banks starred in the 2000 film as Eve, a Barbie-like doll who comes to life when a little girl, played by an 11-year-old Lindsay Lohan, accidentally casts a spell. Banks will return to her starring role in the film in addition to being an executive producer.
The sequel had been shelved for years and went through a number of script rewrites since being reported as being in development in 2012.
“In the sequel, everyone’s favorite doll, Eve, has grown up,” a news release said. “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 a fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie.”
It’s not clear if Lohan will be involved in the sequel in any capacity.
“Life Size 2” is set to premiere in December 2018.
