Hilary Duff Reprising Role in Disney+ Lizzie McGuire Sequel Series

Hilary Duff Reprising Role in Disney+ Lizzie McGuire Sequel Series”

During the D23 Expo convention on Friday, Disney announced it is rebooting one of the most popular Disney Channel shows of all time, Lizzie McGuire, and (get excited) Hilary Duff will return as the titular character.

Duff will play a now-30-year-old Lizzie, making a life for herself in New York City. According to Variety, the creator of the sitcom, Terri Minsky, will be returning for the revival and paving its way for new generations to discover. Like the original series, it will include the familiar animated version of a young Lizzie who offers up amusing, revealing commentary on what 30-year-old Lizzie is really thinking.

Disney knows that Lizzie McGuire fans have grown up and are in dire need of entertainment.

A decade after the blockbuster success of "Lizzie McGuire", Minsky returned to the Disney Channel as the creator/executive producer of the praised 2017 series "Andi Mack". She's working her dream job as apprentice to a designer and has her dream man. "She has kind of the ideal life right now".

The series followed 13-year-old Lizzie as she navigated friends (like her besties, Miranda and Gordo), family (including younger brother Matt) and teen issues, such as first loves. "She is still dealing with that 13-year-old no-holds-barred animated Lizzie that's constantly babbling in her adult Lizzie head", she said, and added: "So she has to deal with that".

Hilary now stars in the TV Land show Younger as Kelsey, a millenial book editor turned publisher in New York City. Lizzie's animated self would pop up to express her inner thoughts and feelings. "But I think that's what's going to make it really special". "I mean, I love her so much", Duff said at the time. "If she could be important to them again at this age, I think that would be wonderful". Under a waiver granted by TV Land/Viacom, Duff will be able to do both "Younger" and "Lizzie McGuire".

"I don't think she's a mom yet", she teased.
