Lindsay Lohan And Jamie Lee Curtis Are Back To Swap Bodies In 'Freaky Friday 2'

Production on the long-awaited sequel to 2003′s “Freaky Friday,” starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan, is officially underway.

On Monday, Disney unveiled a behind-the-scenes photo from the set of “Freaky Friday 2,” showing Curtis and Lohan in character as body-swapping mother-daughter duo Tess and Anna Coleman, respectively.

“The Colemans are back and coming to theaters in 2025!” the studio wrote on social media.

Directed by Nisha Ganatra, “Freaky Friday 2” will pick up with a now-adult Anna who is raising a daughter of her own and is set to become a first-time stepmother.

According to press notes, Tess and Anna will “discover that lightning might indeed strike twice” as they “navigate the myriad challenges that come when two families merge.”

In addition to Curtis and Lohan, actors Mark Harmon, Chad Michael Murray and Rosalind Chao are among those who will also reprise their roles from the 2003 film.

“Freaky Friday,” based on Mary Rodgers’ 1972 novel, follows a mother and daughter as they magically switch bodies. Though the 2003 movie is the best known among modern audiences, the book was previously adapted for the screen in 1976 with Jodie Foster and Barbara Harris and again in 1996 with Shelley Long and Gaby Hoffmann.

A stage musical adaptation premiered in 2016 and was produced for the Disney Channel two years later.

Both Curtis and Lohan have been hinting about the possibility of “Freaky Friday 2” in interviews for some time.

“As I went around the world with ‘Halloween Ends,’ people wanted to know if there was going to be another ‘Freaky Friday.’ Something really touched a chord,” Curtis told The New York Times in May 2023. “When I came back, I called my friends at Disney and said, ‘It feels like there’s a movie to be made.’”

Lohan confirmed on SiriusXM’s “Andy Cohen Live” in March that a sequel was in the works, but she stayed mum on details.

“I don’t want to say too much. And we’re both excited,” she said. “I’m gonna speak for Jamie.”

Lohan welcomed her first child, son Luai, with husband Bader Shammas in July 2023.

In 2022, she returned to acting after a near-decade hiatus, taking a starring role in the Netflix comedy “Falling for Christmas,” and in January, she had a surprise cameo in the movie musical adaptation of “Mean Girls,” which starred Reneé Rapp.
