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.

Although, it looks like she's called it quits on the show...

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...

Because I can't think of anything better than having a McGuire reunion.

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!

Fans were already excited, even without an official date.

How could they not be?

However...

After a year filled with false hope and confusion over the new movie, it looks like the Lizzie McGuire reboot is officially canceled.

Things between Hilary Duff and Disney have gone down hill.

It all started this January when Lizzie McGuire was put on hold after its showrunner, Terri Minsky, was fired.

Disney wrote a statement about his departure...

"Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series. After filming 2 episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the show."

Disney didn't go into any further detail about their "different creative direction."

But it was obvious they thought the show would be a little too racy.

Hilary even hinted at this when she mentioned Disney moved Love, Victor to Hulu because it wasn't "family-friendly."

Hilary wrote in a caption: "Sounds familiar..."

In February, Hilary decided to call for Disney to move the show to Hulu...

She explained on Instagram that she would be "doing a disservice to everyone by limiting the realities of a thirty-year-old's journey to live under the ceiling of a PG rating."

And it looks like the difference of opinion didn't go down well. Hilary confirmed the show wouldn't be happening in another Instagram post...

"I know the efforts and conversations have been everywhere trying to make a reboot work but, sadly & despite everyone's best efforts, it isn't going to happen."

She said she would only do a reboot that was "honest and authentic."

"I'm very sad, but I promise everyone tried their best and the stars just didn't align," she added.

I don't know about you, but I feel like this rounds off 2020 perfectly. Keep scrolling for more...
