Model and TV host Tyra Banks reprises the iconic role of Eve in the "25 Days of Christmas Event" presentation of Life-Size 2: A Christmas Eve, airing at 8 p.m. today on Freeform.

In the original Life-Size, which premiered in 2000, Banks starred with Lindsay Lohan, who played Casey Stuart, a young teenager who wanted to bring her mother back to life. She instead brought her doll to life as a human-size woman who helped Casey and her family before turning back into a doll again.

In the new movie, Grace Manning (Francia Raisa) is a 20-something CEO of Marathon Toys, a huge company started by her mother that is most famous for the Eve doll. Grace, who is in the middle of her quarter-life crisis, realizes she is in over her head, and to make matter worse, her wild ways are causing the company's stock to plummet.

With the help of her neighbor, Grace's old Eve doll (Banks) magically awakens to help Grace get back on track and give her confidence to be the woman Eve knows she can be.

The movie also stars Gavin Stenhouse, Shanica Knowles, Hank Chen and Alison Fernandez.
