Tyra Banks Is Returning for Life Size 2!

This is not a drill!

Megan Vick

It's taken the better part of two decades, but Life Size is getting a sequel.

Freeform announced on Wednesday during their Upfronts presentation in New York that it will be producing a sequel to the Disney original television movie from 2000 starring Tyra Banks as a doll named Eve that comes to life.

Banks will return for the second film, but this time around Eve is all grown up and will help a young woman learn to love again. Along the way Eve will experience "the ups and downs of real life in a fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie." Banks will also executive produce the film.

As exciting as the news is, fans have a long time to wait before they get to feast their eyes on Life Size 2. Freeform has set the premiere date for December 2018, which is a full 18 months away from the announcement.

The best Disney Channel Original Movies on Netflix

The original Life Size premiered on Freeform's sister network ABC as part of the "The Wonderful World of Disney" collection and also starred a young Lindsay Lohan as Casey Stuart, the young girl who owns Eve when she first comes to life.

Rumors of a Life Size sequel have been swirling around since 2012, with the Disney Channel officially announcing they were working on the follow-up in 2014. A year later, Banks tweeted in reply to a fan that the creative team was still working on a script.

It seems the powers that be have finally aligned to bring Eve back to life. The question is, who will play her partner in crime this time?
