The Colemans are back after 20 years!

Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis are reuniting on set as Disney unveils a first behind-the-scenes look at the production of “Freaky Friday 2,” which is now officially filming. Lohan and Curtis are returning to their iconic roles as Anna and Tess Coleman, respectively.

Walt Disney Studios released images of Lindsay Lohan, 37, and Jamie Lee Curtis, 65, on the set of the untitled sequel to the 2003 classic “Freaky Friday.” The two actors held hands and posed naturally in front of each other’s trailers for the body-switching comedy sequel.

In the 2003 comedy “Freaky Friday,” Jamie Lee Curtis starred as the overworked mother, Tess Coleman, and Lindsay Lohan played her teenage daughter, Anna. The plot revolves around the chaos that ensues when Tess and Anna wake up to discover they have switched bodies. They struggle to live each other’s lives—highlighted by Curtis’s memorable scene playing guitar in a student rock concert—until they find a way to reverse the switch.

In the sequel, adult Anna now has a daughter of her own and a soon-to-be stepdaughter. “As they navigate the myriad challenges that come with merging two families, Tess and Anna discover that lightning might indeed strike twice,” Disney said in a statement on Monday.

“On Monday, Curtis wrote on Instagram, ‘We are ecstatic because the Colemans are getting freaky again!'”


The band’s back together and coming to theaters in 2025 🤘. The sequel to Freaky Friday is now in production!

Curtis has been a vocal advocate for reuniting the “Freaky Friday” cast. During an appearance on “The View” in 2022, she revealed that she had urged Disney to bring back Lindsay Lohan, proposing a storyline in which Lohan’s character, now a young mother, would once again switch bodies with her grandmother Tess.

“So then Lindsay gets to be the glamorous grandma who’s still enjoying her life with Mark Harmon in all the ways one would with Mark Harmon,” Curtis remarked. “Simply put, I’d love to see Lindsay as the stylish grandmother, and I want to explore the challenges of being a helicopter parent in today’s world, myself as an older woman.”

Mark your calendars! The “Freaky Friday” sequel, directed by Nisha Ganatra, hits theaters next year. Catch up on the original 2003 classic with Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis, now streaming on Disney+!
