Get the image? More than three decades later hayley mills fans courted in 1961 The parent trapDisney rebooted the classic and produced a huge box office hit.
The 1998 film, starring Lindsay Lohan as identical twins, Annie James and Hallie Parker, they followed the sisters after they met while attending the same Camp Walden summer camp before their 12th birthdays.
While the twins had no idea each other existed: Annie lived in London with her mother, Elizabeth James (Natasha Richardson), and Hallie grew up in California with her father, Nick Parker (dennis quaid), quickly joined.
Sure, the girls had a battle of wits at girls’ camp, but in the end, they came up with a plan to switch places and hopefully reunite their parents. Hallie enlisted the help of the twins’ grandfather (Ronnie Stevens) and butler Martin (Simon Kunz) while meeting his mother in England.
Annie, for her part, was tasked with breaking up her father’s new relationship. Nick had fallen in love with a 26-year-old girl named Meredith Blake (elaine hendrix) while her sister was at camp, but luckily Annie (pretending to be Hallie) had housekeeper Cheesy (Lisa Ann Walter) in his corner.
two decades later The parent trap hooked a new generation in the twin switch story, the cast was practically reunited again. During their talk, the group remembered their late co-star Richardson, who died in March 2009.
“Natasha had such elegance and grace, and she was so motherly to me,” Lohan recalled in July 2020 while speaking with her former co-stars and the director. nancy meyers.
Quaid added: “[She was] someone so generous and happy to be there and transmit that joy of being able to do what we do. He just made everything that much better.”
The following year, Hendrix exclusively told us weekly about how her villainous persona has evolved over the years, revealing that many viewers now see Meredith as a badass woman who knew her worth.
“One of the keys to playing villains is that the characters never think of themselves as a villain, ever. So Meredith Blake, no. Just like me, everyone else is catching up on everything that I had already thought about her and that narrative that Meredith thought about herself,” she said in June 2021. “So of course she wasn’t the villain. Of course, she was the victim of these two little twin monsters and the parents of her.”
Walter, who became best friends with Hendrix in real life despite their characters hating each other, exclusively told U.S in April 2022 that he would happily re-team with the entire cast for a sequel. (Yes, that means Meredith Blake would have to come back somehow.)
“I think it would be really fun if we followed the story [of Chessy and Martin]. Because people all the time say, ‘Why isn’t there a 2? It’s not a remake, but a parent trap where Lindsay’s character grows up and they’re twins and they have to put Martin and Chessy back together,” Walter revealed. “People will come up with ideas for stories like that. … And of course [I’d love if] In a way, Meredith is involved just because I would die to do another version of working with Elaine in those roles.”
She added: “My best friend is Elaine and we got hit at the 20-year reunion mark. [with new fans] for the fact that they pass it on so often and new generations find it.”
