Disney Channel’s next original movie will put two teenagers in each other’s shoes — literally.

“The Swap,” starring Peyton List of “Bunk’d” and Jacob Bertrand of “Kirby Buckets,” will premiere Friday, Oct. 7 on Disney Channel, the Disney Channel app and on demand. You’re reading it first at TV by the Numbers.

The movie is part of Disney’s “Monstober” programming that will run throughout October.

“The Swap” follows friends Ellie (List) and Jack (Bertrand), who, after a  text argument over whose life is tougher, find themselves mysteriously inhabiting each other’s bodies. They each have to navigate their new lives and figure out a way to reverse the swap in time for two big events: a rhythmic gymnastics championship for Ellie and hockey tryouts for Jack.
