Get ready to sing and dance along as FREAKY FRIDAY: A NEW MUSICAL can come home with you on Disney DVD on September 25.
Featuring exclusive bonus content including bloopers, deleted scenes, and the original audition tapes, this contemporary musical update of the classic comedic story, “Freaky Friday” is based on Disney Theatrical Productions’ stage adaptation of the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers. Sixteen-year-old Ellie Blake and her uber-organized mom Katherine, are constantly at odds about Ellie’s messy room, sloppy clothes, and seemingly careless attitude. Ellie really misses her dad who passed away a few years ago; she bickers with her younger brother and argues with Katherine who’s getting ready to marry her fiancé, Mike – tomorrow. As mother and daughter quarrel, they accidentally break the treasured hourglass given to Ellie by her father and then, suddenly, they magically switch bodies. Now, Ellie and Katherine must trade places at work and at school, and, during one crazy day, they’ll learn to understand and appreciate each other. If you’re like we are, and a huge fan of the original, then you are going to love this latest incarnation that will have you up and on your feet feeling the energy and fun.
The cast includes Cozi Zuehlsdorff as Ellie; Heidi Blickenstaff as Katherine; Ricky He as Adam; Alex Désert as Mike; and Jason Maybaum as Fletcher. Directed by Steve Carr and choreographed by John Carrafa, and written for television by Bridget Carpenter, this timeless classic with an all-new twist is the perfect addition for your home video collection.
On Tuesday, September 25, bring home the family movie event that the entire family will thank you for as FREAKY FRIDAY: A NEW MUSICAL is released on Disney DVD.
