It's safe to say we were all excited about the Lizzie McGuire reboot happening on Disney +, and as you can imagine, fans were thrilled that Hilary Duff would be reprising her titular role.
Although it looks like news surrounding reboot has taken a turn for the worst...
Any Lizzie McGuire fans here?
As we all know, Hillary duff dropped some seriously exciting hints at the new Disney Reboot. Sadly, it looks like it was too good to be true, as Hilary Duff has released a statement today about the project...
When last we heard from Lizzie…She had just graduated from school, and made a splash in Italy!
Remember the Lizzie McGuire Movie?You’ve gotta love the way Lizzie went to Italy, fell for a pop star, found out he was a fraud, teamed up with his co-star who conveniently looked just like her, and did an amazing duet in front of thousands!
This is what dreams are made of.
And it left us all wondering what happened next in the life of our teen idol...
In a recent interview, Hilary confirmed that the idea of a Lizzie McGuire reboot was definitely being explored.
😱 @HilaryDuff just confirmed "conversations" about a #LizzieMcGuire revival and PAOLO 👏 IS 👏 SHAKING! Tag your Mira… https://t.co/87D74JsCbj— Entertainment Tonight (@Entertainment Tonight)1544223410.0
When the news first broke, Hilary didn’t want to give people false hope.“There’s been some conversations," she said. “It’s definitely not a go. I don’t want to get everyone wild talking about it."
But after filming started in October 2019, we just couldn't help ourselves...
Here’s what it was going to entail:
Basically, the reboot would follow Lizzie in her current adult life, after the events of the movie (because we can’t have Lizzie McGuire without Lizzie herself, Hilary Duff!)
Hilary had some thoughts on the show.
She was asked where she thought Lizzie would be at this point in her life. “I’m racking my brain," she said. “I don’t think she’s a mom yet, but she might be getting there soon."
Duff also acknowledges how important the show was for kids.“I mean I love her so much. I think she was so important to girls at an important time in their life. If she could be important to them again at this age, I think that would be amazing."
And it’s true that the show was important.
For the kids back then (the young adults of today), Lizzie McGuire was all about the best and the hardest parts of adolescence—and it helped us deal with our own lives!
