Freaky Friday, a TV movie remake of the the 1976 film by Disney, based on a novel by Mary Rodgers, is a Disney movie starring Gaby Hoffmann as a teenage girl, Annabel, who does not get along with her mother, Ellen (Shelley Long), to say the least. One Friday the 13th (hence the title), they wish to switch places for one day, causing them to magically trade bodies. Hilarity Ensues.
This is the first remake of the the 1976 film, and there are currently two more, each less similar to the book than the last. The second remake was a 2003 film that starred Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis, with a slightly different plot. The third remake actually started out as a stage musical, until Disney Channel adapted it into a 2018 TV movie.
