For almost 20 years, there was limited chatter about a potential Freaky Friday sequel. Fans absolutely adored the Mark Waters-directed comedy film that came out in 2003 starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan as a mother and daughter, who switch bodies thanks to a magical Chinese fortune cookie. But when Lindsay stepped away from acting, it seemed like a sequel would never happen.

Lindsay made her acting comeback in 2022 with the holiday movie Falling for Christmas, which inspired Jamie Lee to finally admit that she was in touch with Disney about making a Freaky Friday sequel. Lindsay later confirmed she was onboard, and eventually confirmed that the project was in development. Now, fans have even more to be excited about, as Disney revealed that production has officially begun on Freaky Friday 2.

Disney put Freaky Friday 2 into the works, according to a Variety report in May of 2023! The outlet reported that two decades later, Jamie Lee and Lindsay are set to return in their original roles, with Elyse Hollander creating the screenplay. Nearly a year later, Lindsay confirmed the news during an interview on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show in March 2024. After the host asked her whether the project was greenlit, Lindsay replied, “It is. I don’t want to say too much, but it’s [happening]. And we’re both excited. I’m gonna speak for Jamie.”

Previously, Jamie Lee appeared on The View back in October 2022 and admitted that she’d “already written to Disney” about making Freaky Friday 2. “I’m creatively wide open,” she said. “Bring it. Let me be the grandma. Let me be the old grandma who switches place [with Lindsay’s character]. So then Lindsay gets to be the sexy grandma who is still happy with Mark Harmon in all the ways you’d be happy with Mark Harmon,” Jamie Lee added. “Simply, I’d like to see Lindsay be the hot grandma, and I’d like to see me try to deal with toddlers today.”

In February of 2023, Jamie Lee told Variety at an event that it would happen. “It’s going to happen,” she said at the time. “Without saying there’s anything officially happening, I’m looking at you in this moment and saying, ‘Of course it’s going to happen.’ It’s going to happen.”

Disney Studios revealed that filming had officially begun on Freaky Friday 2 on Monday, June 24. The company shared an Instagram photo of Lindsay and Jamie seated in front of their trailers on the set. “The Colemans are back and coming to theaters in 2025! The sequel to Freaky Friday is now in production,” the company wrote in the caption.
