Hilary Duff Reveals Details About The Upcoming ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Revival
If you grew up in the early 2000s, you know nothing beat getting home and watching Lizzie McGuire after school. Hilary Duff’s quirky character helped many kids navigate their adolescence and also gave us one of the greatest cinematic masterpieces of all time – The Lizzie McGuire Movie. If you feel like you could use some of McGuire’s iconic wisdom now you’re trying to navigate adulthood, get excited. Duff has just revealed some new details about the upcoming Lizzie McGuire revival.
The show is getting a revival for the upcoming streaming service Disney+. With many of the original cast returning, Duff recently spoke to E! News about what’s to come for her character Lizzie.
“She’s a little less frantic and a little more confident. She has some years of life under her belt. There’s that relatability that I think that everyone loves in her,” said Duff.
When asked about her best friend turned love interest in the show, Gordo, she says she “can’t give away too much.” She was also asked about her other love interest Ethan Craft where she said she’s “pretty sure there’s going to be a thing” there. That does not look good for anyone who’s a fan of Gordo…
Her character is now living in New York City (of course), and working as an assistant to a well known interior designer.
“She has an awesome boyfriend and they’ve been together for two years so everything’s looking pretty promising for her,” said Duff.
Get excited to see the entire McGuire family back together, with many of the original cast members returning for the show.
“The years have passed, but you just have like a familiarity with people that you spent so much time with at a point in your life so all of that comfortability was there,” said Duff. “Everyone’s proud of each other and catching up and everyone’s kids are grown and I have two kids of my own now.”
Disney+ is set to launch November 12th, but the new Lizzie McGuire show isn’t coming until sometime in 2020. The cast is currently filming the series and we can’t wait to see how it turns out!
