Tyra Banks confirmed this week that a sequel to Life Size, the 2000 Disney film, is in the works and now I can’t stop smiling. We all remember this made for TV movie starring Tyra and Lindsay Lohan, right?
Life Size taught me many things. Obviously I learned that dolls come alive but more importantly I learned you could wish things into existence with simply a hairbrush and little bit of determination. So with this announcement of a sequel in mind, I am so excited to announce that one of the wishes I made in 2000 has finally come true.
See back in 2000 after the TV premiere of Life-Size I took out my hairbrush and mumbled some words just like Lindsay Lohan did. Of course unlike Lindsay I did not wish to resurrect my dead mother, instead I wanted another movie. (Other wishes I made in 2000 include N’SYNC playing at my birthday party, my mom to stop nagging me to clean my room and for the new millennium to not equal the end of the world.)
We heard back in 2012 that Tyra was executive producing a sequel but now it is confirmed that the sequel is happening and happening soon. Tyra says to Digital Spy,
“I don’t think it’ll be out until probably 2015, but I’m guessing – it could be late 2014 or 2015. But it will be back – Life-Size will be back, better than ever.”
Late 2014 or 2015?! Hooray!
“I can’t [tell you anything] unfortunately. I’m under contract with Disney and I can’t talk about it at all, except that it’s coming. But it will be very different, very different. Very modern – a modern take.”
Well I know she can’t say much but I can certainly say that I’m very excited. Who will be the new Eve? Will Tyra sing about shining bright again? Will Lindsay Lohan’s mom ever come back to life? Tyra, when you can talk about this sequel please tell me everything.
