Disney’s Freaky Friday is out on DVD and it brings musical enjoyment to the family! Hosting a Freaky Friday: A New Musical viewing party is very simple and all you need is some snacks, DVD, and a Bluetooth microphone.
When I was a kid, there was a Freaky Friday film out and it was funny, crazy, and weird. This newest version of the film is actually a perfect fit in this time when everyone LOVES a good musical! On September 25th, this film came out on Disney DVD Featuring Exclusive Bonus Content Including Bloopers, Deleted Scenes and Audition Tapes! Quick Synopsis of the film:
A 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.
I handed my kid the microphone, popped in the DVD, and got started. we sang songs with made-up words and laughed while we filled our tummies with all sorts of snacks.
The movie is seriously a must-see and I’m happy to be able to laugh with the family. Find it in stores now…
