Disney Plus ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Series Adds More Names to their Cast List
I’m hurt, I’m tired, I’m hungry, but at least Lizzie McGuire is coming to Disney Plus. Thanks to this streaming service, multiple television shows are getting revamped, recreated, or rebooted. That includes a show regarding Lizzie McGuire, a character portrayed by Hilary Duff. Which actors will return to this series? Can fans watch this series on Disney Channel? Here’s what we know about the upcoming Disney Plus television series.
Hillary Duff returns to reprise her role as Lizzie McGuire for this Disney Plus television series
What’s Lizzie McGuire without Hillary Duff? Earlier in 2019, the actress announced she would reprise her role on Disney’s streaming platform, Disney Plus. She elaborated on her role with the show during this year’s D23 Expo.
“I didn’t just want to come back because everybody loved her from a moment in time that stuck with them for a lifetime. I never thought, ‘Revival shows are a thing, so I guess we’ll do this one,'” Hillary Duff said with an interview with Vulture.
“Finally being in my 30s, it felt like a good time to revisit her,” the actress continued. “It’s a complicated stage. That’s what people loved about Lizzie so much — that phase of becoming a teenager. It’s such a complicated but fun part of time to navigate. She was everyone’s best friend. She was faced with every challenge that was relatable. Now, I think stepping into the role as a 30-year-old trying to navigate life is equally interesting.”
Who is in the cast of Disney Plus’ Lizzie McGuire series?
This series would not be the first time Disney revived one of their Disney Channel characters. Raven Symoné portrayed the psychic teenager, Raven Baxter, on the beloved Disney Channel series, entitled That’s So Raven. In 2017, Raven’s Home premiered on Disney Channel, featuring the character along with her friends from the original television series. Something similar might happen for this Lizzie McGuire reboot.
Thanks to a picture shared by Disney on Instagram, fans got a better idea of who will be in the cast of this rebooted Disney Channel show. Actors Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine, and Jake Thomas will reprise their roles as Jo, Sam, and Matt McGuire in this upcoming Disney Plus series. Disney has not confirmed if Lalaine will return as Lizzie McGuire’s best friend, Miranda.
