It's the film that launched her into Hollywood at the tender age of 11.

And now, more than 20 years later, Lindsay Lohan has reunited with her castmates from her breakthrough movie, The Parent Trap.

The actress, 34, filmed a special video chat with the stars of the Disney comedy, which was released in 1998.

Lohan, who played twins Hallie Parker and Annie James in the film, joined the virtual reunion from Dubai, where she has been living for several years.

"This is so cool," she says in a teaser for the project, which will be released on TV journalist Katie Couric's Instagram on Monday at 9am Eastern Time (5pm UAE time). The reunion will mark the first time the cast have come together since the film's release.

Lohan will be joined on the video by co-star Dennis Quaid, who played her father, as well as director Nancy Meyers.

"I had such a blast," recalls Quaid in the teaser, while Meyers says they "discovered a big star" when casting Lohan.

The romantic comedy, which also stars Natasha Richardson, who died in 2009, as well as Elaine Hendrix and Maggie Wheeler, is a retelling of Erich Kastner's 1949 novel Lottie and Lisa.

In the 1998 film, Lohan plays twins who were separated as babies when their parents divorced. Living across the Atlantic, with a parent each, they run into each other at summer camp, where they discover they are twins and hatch a plan to reunite their parents.

"It's just really special," Lohan recalls of the film in the reunion teaser.

The Parent Trap marked the American actress's first major Hollywood role, after previously starring on TV show Another World.

She went on to appear in films such as Mean Girls, Freaky Friday and Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.

Lohan, who also has a series of nightclubs and resorts and has released music, has remained in Dubai throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. She has often said the lack of paparazzi in the UAE is one of the main reasons she lives in the country.

“I live here, yep, I have been here for about six years," she told David Spade in an interview in April. "But I go to New York a lot to see my family … and I was in London before this."
