Freaky Friday (Disney 2018, Alex Desert, Jennifer Laporte)

Published

on


In comedy musical Freaky Friday, when an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again before mom’s big wedding.

From Disney Channel’s press release, June 2018… Cozi Zuehlsdorff (“Dolphin Tale”) and Heidi Blickenstaff (“The Little Mermaid” and “Something Rotten!” on Broadway, and the stage production of “Freaky Friday”) star in the Disney Channel Original Movie “Freaky Friday,” a music-driven, body-swap comedy about a mother and daughter who, strangely, spend a day in each other’s shoes. It premieres FRIDAY, AUGUST 10 (8:00-9:45 p.m. EDT/PDT), on Disney Channel and will be available earlier (12:01 a.m. PDT) on DisneyNOW (to verified users) and (12:01 a.m. EDT/PDT) on Disney Channel VOD.

Adam Bonnett, executive vice president, Original Programming, Disney Channel, said, “This movie is a creative collaboration with our Theatrical colleagues who developed an original stage musical from a beloved story. Now we’ve added a fresh twist by adapting it again into a movie for kids and families – with Broadway talent on and off camera – that has the potential to be a classic ‘DCOM’ for years to come.”

Tom Kitt wrote the music and Brian Yorkey penned the lyrics for “Freaky Friday.” The Tony Award(R) and Pulitzer Prize-winning pair also collaborated on “If, Then” and “Next to Normal,” as well as the stage version of “Freaky Friday.” Eight songs from the stage production and two new songs, including one co-written by Cozi Zuehlsdorff, are performed in a theatrical pop-rock style by the cast. The script, written by Bridget Carpenter (“11.22.63,” “Friday Night Lights,”), is based on her Disney Theatrical Production stage adaptation of the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers.
