Tyra Banks is prepared to deliver an entirely new sound in the upcoming “Life-Size” sequel. The television personality and former supermodel revealed in a recent interview that she hopes to turn the movie’s original theme song “Be A Star” into a total “club banger”—and the internet is ready for a contemporary remix.
Banks shared that she wants to “dust off [her] retired vocal chords” for the long-awaited sequel to the 2000 Disney movie, which follows a teenage girl’s Eve doll after it is accidentally brought to life. “I’d love to find a top producer that everybody knows, like a household name, to do the music. And a beautiful sound technician to auto-tune the hell out of my voice,” Banks told Entertainment Weekly. She added that while some of the words will be the same, the song itself will sound completely different. “We’re going for club banger as opposed to nursery school rhyme this time!”
The original movie starred Banks, Lindsay Lohan, Jere Burns, Anne Marie DeLuise, Garwin Sanford, Jillian Fargey and others. While it has been confirmed that the “America’s Next Top Model” host will be reprising her role as Eve, no other cast members have been confirmed—though Banks previously said Lohan may return as Casey. “Life-Size 2,” which is described as a “fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie” in which Eve is “magically awoken to help a young woman learn to live and love again,” is slated to debut on Freeform this December.
