Hilary Duff is being super honest with her fans, and she's concerned about censoring the life of her classic role of Lizzie McGuire.
The actress said the “Lizzie McGuire” revival can’t be “real and relatable” if has to be a family friendly show.
It was reported that the show has been put on hold. Duff posted an emotional Instagram post asking for Disney + to move the show to Hulu.
"Was incredibly excited to launch 'Lizzie' on D+ and my passion remains! However, I feel a huge responsibility to honor the fans' relationship with LIZZIE who, like me, grew up seeing themselves in her," Duff said.
"I'd be doing a disservice to everyone by limiting the realities of a 30 year old's journey to live under the ceiling of a PG rating. It's important to me that just as her experiences as a preteen/teenager navigating life were authentic, her next chapters are equally as real and relatable. It would be a dream if Disney would let us move the show to Hulu, if they were interested, and I could bring this beloved character to life again."
The streaming service announced the news in 2019 that it was rebooting the popular 2001 Disney Channel series.
On January 1, Disney + shared an exciting teaser for what's coming to the platform in 2020, which included the glimpse into the upcoming season of “Lizzie McGuire.”
“Hi, it’s me,” Hilary Duff’s character says as she approaches a car in the first-look.
E! reported that the reboot finds Lizzie as she’s about to turn 30. “She seemingly has it all with her dream job as an assistant to a fancy New York City decorator, her dream guy and a picturesque Brooklyn apartment, but things aren't always as they seem. With a little help from her friends, her loving family and her 13-year-old alter-ego in animated form, Lizzie navigates the ups and downs of adulthood,” the synopsis reads.
There's no word yet on where the show stands as of now.
