Se eri un bambino o un’adolescente nei primi anni 2000, è probabile che tu abbia sentito parlare di Hilary Duff e della sua filmografia iconica. Da “A Cinderella Story” al film originale di Disney Channel “Cadet Kelly”, la stellina è stata un faro per contenuti per adolescenti riconoscibili di cui parlano ancora oggi i millennial. Tuttavia, prima di recitare nei suddetti progetti, Duff ha fatto la sua grande occasione con la sua serie TV Disney di successo “Lizzie McGuire”. Lo spettacolo per adulti ha seguito Duff nel ruolo del protagonista mentre navigava tra gli alti e bassi della scuola media, insieme ai suoi devoti migliori amici Miranda e Gordo. La serie comprendeva anche un’esilarante versione animata di Lizzie che doveva rappresentare la coscienza del personaggio.

Upon its debut, the series became an instant success with viewers, which resulted in two 30+ episode seasons and a hit theatrical movie — who could forget the legendary “What Dreams Are Made Of” song? Nearly 15 years after the show’s series finale, Disney and Duff announced plans for a revival series at the 2019 D23 expo. “It’s so great to be home,” the “Younger” star told the crowd (via Entertainment Weekly). At the time, Duff teased that her character would be living in Brooklyn and turning 30 years old at the start of the series. However, fans were left devastated in 2020 after Disney canceled the project.

Nearly two years after the project was shelved, Duff has opened up about why Disney may have passed on the highly anticipated revival.

Hilary Duff thinks Disney was ‘spooked’ over a mature Lizzie

Over the last year and a half, “Lizzie McGuire” fans have been reeling over Disney’s cancellation of the revival. In a recent interview with Women’s Health, the “Raise Your Voice” star gave insight into why the studio might have canceled the highly anticipated project. “She had to be 30 years old doing 30-year-old things,” Hilary Duff explained. “She didn’t need to be doing bong rips and having one-night stands all the time, but it had to be authentic. I think they got spooked.”

Duff’s Women’s Health interview isn’t the first time she’s opened up about Disney’s pushback of a more mature Lizzie. Back in February 2020, the series’ showrunner Terri Minsky was reportedly fired after filming two episodes. “Fans have a sentimental attachment to ‘Lizzie McGuire’ and high expectations for a new series,” a Disney spokesperson explained to Variety. “After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and putting a new lens on the show.”

Shortly after the surprising news, Duff took to Instagram and asked Disney officials to place the revival on Hulu rather than Disney+. “I’d be doing a disservice to everyone by limiting the realities of a 30-year-old’s journey to live under the ceiling of a PG rating,” the “Sparks Fly” singer wrote at the time. Because Lizzie’s character in the original show was so “authentic,” Duff insisted that “her next chapters are equally as real and relatable.”
