PHOENIX – This is what dreams are made of: Hilary Duff is returning to Lizzie McGuire for a sequel series for Disney+!
According to Deadline, this is what you can expect:
“In the reimagined version of the sitcom, a sequel to the 2001 Disney Channel series, Lizzie McGuire (Duff) is a 30-year-old millennial navigating life in New York City. Like the original series, it will include the familiar animated version of a young Lizzie who offers up funny, revealing commentary on what 30-year-old Lizzie is really thinking.”
It will be a series about grown-up Lizzie conquering her life, so it won’t be a reboot nor a series like Girl Meets World that followed Boy Meets World and told from the child’s perspective. It will still be a narrative around Lizzie. Lizzie from 13-years-old to 30-years-old.
Lizzie also created the bitmoji before bitmoji was a thing so she was already ahead of the game!
The small-screen series isn’t the only Lizzie McGuire project in the works.
“Plans for expansion of the Lizzy McGuire franchise, which included a second movie and an ABC comedy series starring Duff as Lizzie in high school, came to an abrupt halt in 2003 when negotiations between the young actress and Disney fell through.”
This is the best news ever!
