Body swap appearances in media

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Body swaps have been a common storytelling device in fiction media. Novels such as Vice Versa (1882)[1] and Freaky Friday (1972)[2] have inspired numerous film adaptations and retellings, as well as television series and episodes, many with titles derived from "Freaky Friday". In 2013, Disney Channel held a Freaky Freakend with seven shows that featured body-swapping episodes.[a]

This list features exchanges between two beings, and thus excludes similar phenomena of body hopping, spirit possession, transmigration,[4] and avatars, unless the target being's mind is conversely placed in the source's body.[5][6] It also excludes age transformations that are sometimes reviewed or promoted as body swaps, as in the movies Big and 17 Again;[5][7][8] identity/role swaps, typically between twins, clones, look-alikes, or doppelgängers;[9] and characters with multiple personalities.[5]
