GUYS! GUYS! GUYS! Today is the day for sacred nostalgia news. First, Whoopi Goldberg confirmed that she’d be reprising her role in the Sister Act West End musical.
Now, it’s been confirmed that the entire freaking McGuire fam will return for the Lizzie McGuire reboot.
Lead star and qween of all earthly things Hilary Duff shared the incredible news via Insta, writing:
“We are standing in what will soon be the McGuire living room. What’s up fam. We doin this.”
Robert Carradine, Hallie Todd and Jake Thomas played Lizzie’s father, mother and brother in the original series as well as the 2003 movie.
The highly anticipated Disney Plus reboot has reportedly just began production and thus far, the McGuire fam are the only confirmed returning cast members.
Speaking to E! News, Duff recently discussed what possible storylines the reboot could include.
“I have said this before, but for me coming back when she’s 30 and she’s not in a marriage and she’s not having a baby and she’s not doing all the things that I have already done in my life, that story is really exciting for me,” the actress told the publication.
“I think to myself, where can we go? What are the struggles of a 30-year-old right now? What are the pressures that life throws in front of a woman who is 30 and doesn’t have all the things yet? And for me, that’s Lizzie McGuire, she had those struggles in middle school where she didn’t have a place where she fits in and you know […] always on the struggle bus, but she’s also your best friend, and that’s exactly what I want to target and hit home again—is being there for girls in this time of their life.”
She also fanned the idea of Lizzie possibly becoming a mama and holy fkn shit, can you even imagine?
“Maybe at the end of the series we see her having a baby? You know, maybe it’s hard for her to get pregnant? Maybe there is something bad happening on her 30th birthday in the first episode? Maybe she’s going to be in her childhood bedroom in the first episode? I don’t know! There’s all this fun! We want to give fans what they want, but we also want to have a completely new show.”
