Fans of the original Lizzie McGuire series will be thrilled to learn that the original cast will be reuniting, 15 years later, for a new series on Disney+
It’s true, 15 years after we last saw them, the cast of Lizzie McGuire, including Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine, and Jake Thomas will be reuniting with Hillary Duff to reprise their roles on a new iteration of Lizzie McQuire exclusively for Disney+.
“We are incredibly excited to bring back one of the most popular Disney Channel series of all time along with some beloved and familiar faces,” said Ricky Strauss, president, Content & Marketing, Disney+. “With Terri at the helm and Hilary, Hallie, Robert, and Jake back after all these years, it’s our honor to welcome the McGuire family into the Disney+ family.”
The new story picks up as Lizzie McGuire is just about to turn 30. She seemingly has it all – 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 cast is presently working on a read-through of the first episode, and there is no word as yet as to when the series will film or air.
