Hilary Duff fans have good news as the actress recently spilt that she is in talks with Disney Plus to continue the “Lizzie McGuire” reboot named the Lizzie McGuire show. And she even teased the idea of possibly having a Lizzie and Hannah Montana crossover.
Back in March, Miley Cyrus, on her show Bright Minded: Live With Miley, channelled her inner Lizzie fan and gushed over Hilary Duff saying “The only reason I wanted it [Hannah Montana] was so I could do whatever you did”. Duff thanked her and called Miley an “Inspiration” and so a possible Hannah Montana crossover doesn’t seem completely out of the works, does it?
Now on an interview with Cosmopolitan, Hilary gave her thoughts about the crossover saying she had never thought about it and she loves Miley Cyrus .”I’ve never thought about a Hannah Montana and Lizzie McGuire crossover, but never say never! Anything goes these days, right?”
The actress also spoke about her Lizzie McGuire reboot which came to an abrupt stop after the show’s creator Terri Minsky left the show. According to a Variety report, The show is supposed to pick up on Lizzie’s story as she navigates through her adult life turning 30. Disney’s spokesperson also took the stage and said: “Fans have a sentimental attachment to ‘Lizzie McGuire’ and high expectations for a new series”.
“After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the show.”
Duff revealed that she’s just as “excited” about the Lizzie McGuire reboot and is in talks with Disney+, Disney. “I feel just as excited as everyone else. Obviously, I have felt love for that character and I feel particularly dedicated to the fans about making the exact show that it should be.” said the actress
“So you know, we started shooting, we stopped shooting and went back to the drawing board with Disney+, Disney, and myself to come up with something that works for all of us, and we’re still in the middle of that process” she added that everything had to be halted due to the pandemic thereafter.
“But no, we’re talking weekly and I feel really good about it. It’s a work in progress”.
The original Lizzie McGuire ran for two seasons on Disney from 2001 to 2004, instantly making Duff famous for the role. Back then, it centred around Lizzie’s navigation of life through middle school and was adapted into a movie of the same name in 2003.
