- Hilary Duff is asking Disney+ to move the Lizzie McGuire reboot to Hulu.
- Love, Victor recently moved from Disney+ to Hulu due to it not being "family-friendly" enough for the streaming service.
- The Lizzie reboot recently paused production after just two episodes were filmed.
Hilary Duff isn't giving up on Lizzie McGuire and hopes to get the chance to share her story as it was meant to be.
In a new Instagram post, Hilary opened up to Lizzie McGuire fans and asked Disney+ to move the show from the streaming service to Hulu in an effort to be able to tackle storylines outside of a PG rating. The move would follow Love, Victor, the highly-anticipated sequel series to Love, Simon, which recently moved streaming services due to some of the themes of the show that Disney felt were not family-friendly.
"Was incredibly excited to launch Lizzie on Disney+ and my passion remains! However, I feel a huge responsibility to honor the fans' relationship with Lizzie who, like me, grew up seeing themselves in her. 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," Hilary wrote on Instagram.
"It's important to me that just as her experiences as a preteen/teenager were authentic, her next chapters are equally as real and relatable," she continued. "It would be a dream if Disney would let us move the show to Hulu, if they were interested, and I could bring this beloved character to life again."
Series creator Terri Minsky previously revealed that the production on the show stopped after Disney saw the first two episodes and felt that it wasn't "family-friendly" enough for Disney+.
"I am so proud of the two episodes we did," Minsky told Variety. "Hilary has a grasp of Lizzie McGuire at 30 that needs to be seen. It’s a wonderful thing to watch. I would love the show to exist, but ideally I would love it if it could be given that treatment of going to Hulu and doing the show that we were doing. That’s the part where I am completely in the dark. It’s important to me that this show was important to people. I felt like I wanted to do a show that was worthy of that kind of devotion."
