Lizzie McGuire Reboot Update Is Here
If you’re a 90s kid then you’ve grown up watching Lizzie McGuire as she tackled middle school and dealt with her annoying brother. From 2001 to 2004, we lived life every day alongside Lizzie and it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say Lizzie McGuire has been a huge part of our childhood. That is why when Disney+ posted a special announcement about a Lizzie McGuire reboot, we couldn’t hold it together.
Lizzie McGuire Reboot Announced
Posted on Youtube, the special announcement video featured Hilary Duff breaking the news. Adam Lamberg, Jake Thomas, Hallie Todd, and Robert Carradine are all set to star in the reboot as well.
In November 2019, Hilary Duff spilled what the reboot would be based on. Talking about her character, she revealed Lizzie has gained a lot of confidence and has a career now. The challenges of middle school were relatable to them then and the challenges of a 30-year-old would be relatable to them now.
What Is Happening Now?
However, the series continued to stall and now we know why. Production came to a halt after only two episodes when original series creator, Terri Minsky was fired. It led to the public speculating that the revival might not be moving forward now.
Terri told Variety in an interview that she is so proud of the two episodes they did. “Hilary has a grasp of Lizzie McGuire at 30 that needs to be seen. I would love the show to exist. But ideally, I would love it if it could be given that treatment of going to Hulu and doing the show that we were doing. I felt like I wanted to do a show that was worthy of that kind of devotion,” she continued.
After all this drama, Hilary Duff broke her silence on the whole situation by throwing shade at Disney+. She posted an Instagram story including a screenshot of a Disney+ article. The article was about a show called Love, Victor being canceled and moved to Hulu because it wasn’t “family-friendly”.
She circled the headline and captioned it “sounds familiar”. This welcomed rumors of cancellation.
Hilary Duff then took to Instagram again to clear up all the rumors and to request Disney+ to move the show to Hulu.
The production staff and the cast are now waiting for a decision from Disney+.
