Every generation has its ‘Freaky Friday’ clone. From the 70s to the 00’s each generation has had at least one movie based on the classic concept of two people switching bodies in order to understand what the other person goes through in daily life… Enter ‘The Swap’ Disney Channel’s latest addition to the collection.

As first reported by Deadline Hollywood back in April, Disney Channel regulars Peyton List and Jacob Bertrand will star in The Swap, a body-switching comedy that will be the newest edition to the Disney Channel Original Movie franchise. The comedy is based on the YA book by Megan Shull.

The DCOM, directed by Jay Karas from an adaptation by Charlie Shahnaian and Shari Simpson, revolves around a rhythmic gymnast (List) with a pending make-it-or-break-it competition and the youngest son (Bertrand) in a hockey family, who’s vying for a varsity spot on his school team. Their paths unexpectedly cross, and a simple text results in them actually swapping bodies.
