The 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.
The cast includes Cozi Zuehlsdorff as Ellie; Heidi Blickenstaff as Katherine; Ricky He as Adam; Alex Désert as Mike; and Jason Maybaum as Fletcher.
Just like in the original movie, sixteen-year-old Ellie Blake and her super organized mom Katherine, are constantly arguing about Ellie’s messy room, sloppy clothes and careless attitude.
Ellie really misses her dad who passed away a few years ago; she constantly fights 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.
The DVD bonus material includes blooper reels, deleted scenes and even audition tapes!
