Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis Are Officially Reunited for “Freaky Friday 2”

Disney has released the first behind-the-scenes look at Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis’s long-awaited reunion for Freaky Friday 2. Lohan and Curtis are back at it as Anna and Tess Coleman, respectively, as filming is underway.

Their first go-round as a stressed out, overworked mom and rebellious daughter who can’t see eye to eye on anything dropped in 2003 from director Mark Waters, based on Mary Rodgers’s novel and adapted by screenwriters Heather Hach and Leslie Dixon. The catch, of course, was that stressed Tess and rebellious Anna switched bodies, forcing each of them to understand what it was like to live each other’s lives. Talk about getting a dose of perspective and empathy the hard way.

The sequel is directed by Nisha Ganatara (she directed Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson in Late Night) from a script by Jordan Weiss. Lohan and Curtis are joined by returning Freaky Friday alums Chad Michael Murray, Mark Harmon, Christina Vidal Mitchell, Haley Hudson, Rosalind Chao, Lucille Soong, and Stephen Tobolowsky. Manny Jacinto, Julia Butters, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, and Sophia Hammons are new to the franchise.

Curtis told The View back in 2022 that she’d written to Disney personally about her desire to make a sequel. She’s now producing alongside original Freaky Friday producer Andrew Gunn, alongside Kristin Burr.

Freaky Friday 2 is slated to hit theaters in 2025.
