"Life-Size 2" Has Officially Started Filming And It's Going To Be The Christmas Movie Of My Dreams

Looks like Eve has a new special friend!

Posted on

Last year, it was announced that Life-Size 2 was officially happening and that Tyra Banks would be reprising her role as Eve, your special friend!

A sequel to the 2000 classic, the film will be a "fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie" that'll air on Freeform in December.

After the news dropped, the question on everyone's mind was if Lindsay Lohan would appear in the film.

Just a few months ago in April, Tyra said that Lindsay would be in the film.

Well, while there's still no official word on Lindsay, earlier this week, Tyra announced on Instagram that Grown-ish actor Francia Raisa had been cast as her co-star!

Francia shared the same photo on her own Instagram, along with the caption, "Cheesin so hard because I get to work with the amazing @tyrabanks on the sequel of one of my favorite childhood movies #lifesize2 #shinebrightshinefar #smizing 😆😆 Look out for it this holiday season on @freeform"

According to Freeform, Francia "will play Grace Manning, the confident and funny 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 notorious for her drunken exploits that wind up on the front page of the tabloids and cause the company’s stock to plunge on a daily basis."

As for Eve, this time "she’s magically awoken to help a young woman learn to live and love again, and along the way...will experience the ups and downs of real life."

A love story, character growth, AND a Christmas setting??? YES. YES. YES.

*Me, watching this movie when it comes out in December*

But, I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that Lindsay will make a cameo. I mean, what CEO doesn't need a lawyer, amiright?
