Francia Raisa Is Set To Co-Star In 'Life Size 2' & I Am SO Excited

Mark your calendars 90s/00s kids: Supermodel-turned-actress, Tyra Banks, revealed Monday afternoon that Life Size 2 will be premiering this winter on Freeform, and that Francia Raisa is going to be her costar. (OMG!)

Raisa is well-known among Freeform fans for co-starring on the network’s Black-ish spin-off, Grown-ish, as Ana, and previously starring in The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Christmas Bounty. She's also appeared in Netflix’s Dear White People and appeared in 2006's Bring It On: All or Nothing.

"Cheesin' so hard!! Can’t believe I get to film one of my childhood favorites," Raisa tweeted following the news.

According to Freeform, Francia Raisa 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 a hot mess in the middle of her quarter-life crisis and realizing that she is in over her head as CEO. To make matters worse, her wild-child ways are causing the company’s stock to plummet.

Gavin Stenhouse plays Grace’s potential love interest Calum; Shanica Knowles will play Tahlia and Hank Chen will star as Brendan, who are Grace’s best friends; along with Alison Fernandez as Lex, Grace’s young next-door neighbor.

Banks led the original film, which premiered 18 years ago as part of ABC’s The Wonderful World of Disney, as Eve, a fashion doll that transforms into a human after a grieving girl (played by Lindsay Lohan) bungles a magic spell intended to revive her dead mother.

According to DeadlineLife Size 2 will premiere during Freeform’s “25 Days of Christmas” annual programming event.
