The Cast of ‘The Parent Trap’ Remake, Then and Now

Twenty-five years ago, Lindsay Lohan made her film debut in the remake of The Parent Trap, playing identical twins Annie and Hallie.

The twins, separated at birth and each raised by one of their biological parents, later discover each other for the first time at summer camp. The pair elaborately and successfully scheme to reunite their parents and rekindle their romance after they secretly switch places.

A remake of the 1961 original Disney film starring Hayley Mills, which was an adaptation of Erich Kastner’s novel Lottie and Lisa, the film was a box-office success and earned positive reviews, especially for its young star Lohan.

More than two decades later, fans still reminisce over the film that made Oreos dipped in peanut butter a childhood staple. 

To celebrate the film’s 22nd anniversary in 2020, Katie Couric reunited the stars, along with writer-director Nancy Meyers and writer-producer Charles Shyer, on her Instagram channel, where they talked about favorite scenes, lines and memories from making the movie.

And now, in honor of the film’s 25th anniversary, read on to see what the cast has been up to in the years since the movie hit theaters July 29, 1998.
