Hilary Duff has thoughts about how Lizzie McGuire will tackle turning 30
Update, September 5th, 11:35 a.m. EDT: Hilary Duff spoke to Entertainment Weeklyabout the Lizzie McGuire sequel; this post has been updated to reflect that new information.
Hey now, hey no-ow,Lizzie McGuire is back on Disney. And yes, this is what dreams are made of. Last week, Hilary Duff and Walt Disney Company went public with their announcement that a Lizzie McGuire spinoff will be headed to the new streaming site Disney+. The series will reportedly pick up about a decade and a half after the original Lizzie McGuire and The Lizzie McGuire Movie left off. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming reboot and where you can watch it.
As reported by TVLine, Hilary Duff will reprise her role as Lizzie, now a 30-year-old apprentice interior designer living in New York City with her chef fiancé. And yes, she’ll still have 13-year-old animated Lizzie living in her brain and spilling the tea every chance she gets.
When we reunite with Lizzie, she’ll be celebrating her 30th birthday with her friends. However, the party gets cut short by “some pretty big news,” as Duff told Good Morning America on August 26th.
Our minds immediately went to Gordo (Adam Lamberg) showing up out of the blue. Or perhaps Miranda (Lalaine) finally returned from Mexico City, where she disappeared to promptly before graduating junior high. Then again, maybe her brother Matt (Jake Thomas) got into trouble and Lizzie needs to return home to bail him out of something.
