Last week, Disney Plus announced that production on the new Lizzie McGuire revival was put on hold after they fired original series creator and revival showrunner, Terri Minksy. Word was the reboot was skewing too “adult” (read: too much anal) for squeaky clean Disney. Hilary Duff was none too pleased, and threw some subtle shade on her Instagram stories.
Well, now, Hilary’s being as subtle as sworn enemy Lindsay Lohan dancing at a Mykonos beach party. She went back on Instagram to publicly ask Disney to move the show to Hulu, just like they did with the Love, Simon show.
Here’s Hilary’s plea to Mickey:
So it looks like Hil still really wants that Lizzie check. And a chance to show her old fans that she’s a real, live, sexual adult now. I mean, she tried it with The Haunting of Sharon Tate, but… well… bless her heart.
I will say, I don’t agree with Hilary when she says Lizzie McGuire’s teen experiences were “authentic”. How?! She straight up pulled a Prince and the Pauper with an identical Italian pop star. She had a cartoon avatar following her around. She made out with THEE Aaron Carter! Where were the pervy gym teachers? The near-constant internet research to make sure her areoles were normal sized? The whining that she’s hungry, then when her parents tell her to just eat a piece of fruit, she screams that she wishes she were dead before slamming all the doors in the house? You know, normal teen shit!
