Body swap appearances in media

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

Body swaps have been a common storytelling device in fiction media. Books such as Vice Versa (1882)[1] and Freaky Friday (1972)[2] have inspired a number of adaptation films as well as television shows, some of which have used derivatives of Freaky Friday for its episode titles. In 2013, Disney Channel held a Freaky Freakend with seven shows that featured body-swapping episodes.[a]

The list focuses mainly on exchanges between two beings, thus it forgoes similar phenomena of body hopping, spirit possession, transmigration,[4] avatars, unless the target being's mind is conversely placed in the source's body.[5][6] It also excludes age transformations as with the movie Big or 17 Again that are sometimes considered body swaps by the media;[5][7][8] identity/role swaps, which are typically done between twins, clones, look-alikes, and doppelgängers;[9] and characters with multiple personalities.[5]
