- Hilary Duff posted an Instagram implying the reason that the Lizzie McGuire reboot is on hiatus is because Disney wants the show to have a PG rating, and she feels as though that wouldn't be "authentic."
- She also publicly asked Disney to move the show to Hulu.
There has been much drama with the new Lizzie McGuire reboot—after getting everybody (read: me) amped up for the show, last month Disney mysteriously put shooting on hiatus after determining that they wanted to "move in a different creative direction," whatever that means.
Well, earlier this week Hilary Duff took to Instagram to hint that the reason the show was put on hold was because it wasn't "family friendly" enough for Disney—and just today she took her discontent with the network public, asking if the reboot could be moved to Hulu (which is owned by Disney) instead.
She posted a statement on Instagram talking about why the show shouldn't have to maintain a PG rating, and explained why the rating would be doing everyone a "disservice." Hilary shared:
Was incredibly excited to launch "Lizzie" on D+ 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. It’s important to me that just as her experiences as a preteen/teenager navigating life were authentic, her next chapters are equally as real and relatable. 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.❤️
And gotta say...I'm team Hilary/Lizzie on this one. Pick up the show, Hulu!!
