Freeform confirmed today that Tyra Banks will return as Eve in the original film “Life-Sized 2,” adding another popular name to the long awaited holiday special. The movie is set to air on December 2nd, and already has impressive cast behind it. “Life-Size 2” stars Tyra Banks, Francia Raisa, Gavin Stenhouse, Shanica Knowles, Hank Chen and Alison Fernandez.
The original movie will be part of Freeform‘s ‘25 Days of Christmas’ programming event, which will help viewers countdown the days until the big holiday season. “25 Days of Christmas,” airing DEC. 1 – 25, brings viewers a season full of festive specials, classic holiday movies and returning favorites. Freeform is still in the middle of the “31 Days of Halloween” event, which provides spooktaklar programming throughout October to get viewers excited for Halloween. We don’t want to pick favorites, but Freeform is giving viewers a chance to watch “Hocus Pocus,” one of the greatest Halloween movies of all time, about a dozen or so times before Halloween actually gets here this year. There are also several big Halloween specials set to air on the network, along with Freeform originals.
In the Christmas special that we mentioned earlier, Grace Manning (Francia Raisa) is the 20-something 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 in the middle of her quarter-life crisis, realizing she is in over her head as CEO. To make matters worse, her wild-child ways are causing the company’s stock to plummet. With the help of her young next-door neighbor, Grace’s old Eve doll (Tyra Banks) magically awakens to help get Grace back on track and give her the confidence to be the woman and leader Eve knows Grace can be.
“Life-Size 2” is executive produced by Tyra Banks and Stephanie Allain. The film is written by Cameron Fay and Stacey Harman, and directed by Steven K. Tsuchida.
