Disney Resurrecting 'Freaky Friday' For All-New Musical Version!
Friday is one of those movies that transcends generations.
Depending what age you are, just hearing the name of that movie
that conjures up certain images in one's mind. The story is a
classic one: a mother and daughter magically switch bodies and have
to act like each other for a few days, and hijinks ensue!
Most Millennials grew up with the iconic 2003 movie that starringLindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis.
Go back even further, and those of you who are more old school might remember the original 1977 version starring Jodie Foster!
"Freaky" indeed, eh? Well, that is not all, because in 2016, a stage musical version of the story, starring Heidi Blickenstaffas the mother and Emma Hunton as the daughter made its debut and it ended up having major success! So much so that Disney decided to adapt it into a film!
Here's a taste of what you might expect from the newest version:
Blickenstaff will reprise her role for this whole new version of
the classic tale, though her daughter in the film will be played byCozi Zuehlsdorff.
We cannot wait to see what this musical version of Freaky Friday has to offer a new generation of fans!
