It’s time to get freaky again. Freaky Friday, based on Mary Rodgers’ 1972 novel of the same name, was remade into a 1976 fantasy comedy starring Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster. Curtis and Lohan starred in a reboot of the story in 2003, revolving around Tess Coleman (Jamie Lee Curtis), a single mother, and her teenage daughter Anna (Lindsay Lohan), who accidentally swap bodies.

Fans of the original have been hearing about a sequel getting closer and closer to happening and Disney has just announced the start of production on Freaky Friday 2, which has not formally announced a new title as of yet.

Curtis and Lohan reprise their roles as Tess and Anna Coleman. Other returning cast members from the original film include Mark Harmon, Chad Michael Murray, Christina Vidal Mitchell, Haley Hudson, Lucille Soong, Stephen Tobolowsky, and Rosalind Chao. They are joined by Julia Butters, Sophia Hammons, Manny Jacinto, and Maitreyi Ramakrishnan. Get a look at the duo in the newly released behind-the-scenes picture from the set below as well as check out Disney’s official announcement video on Tiktok HERE.
