Hilary Duff Says Disney Axed Lizzie McGuire Reboot Over Adult Elements

May 12, 2022

We’ll probably never know what Lizzie McGuire is doing in her adult years, but from Disney’s point of view, that may be for the best. In the age of reboots and revivals, it was reported in 2019 that Disney was reviving Lizzie McGuire with Hilary Duff reprising her role as the titular teenager, now an adult navigating life as a thirtysomething. Behind the scenes, the project wound up falling apart and it was revealed by the end of 2020 that the planned reboot was no longer moving forward.
