Actress Hilary Duff recently revealed she’s reprising the iconic, and totally nostalgic, role of Lizzie McGuire!
Even though Duff already plays a millennial navigating city life in NYC (in the TVLand series Younger), the actress is set to hit the Big Apple again—but this time in the Lizzie McGuire reboot.

SURPRISE!!! I’ve been trying to contain this excitement for a loooong time while this has been in the works! I am beyond excited to be home again, back with my girl ♥️…and into her 30’s #bringbackbutterflyclips #lizziemcguire #thisiswhatdreamsaremadeof #lizzieforpresident #DisneyPlus #D23Expo . . . . . . Also, If you needed yet another reason to get Disney+ ….the #lizziemcguiremovie will be living there!
According to recent reports, Duff will also play a young professional in the remake. Unlike her Younger character, a publishing whiz, Duff told Entertainment Weekly the 30ish McGuire is, “Working as an apprentice to a fancy New York City decorator.”
Duff also told EW, “The good news is, just like me and everybody who loved Lizzie and has grown up with her, Lizzie’s also grown up.” She went on to add, “She’s older, she’s wiser, she has a much bigger shoe budget, which is super exciting. She has her dream job. She has kind of the perfect life right now.”
Like the original, the reboot will also feature Lizzie’s animated alter ego spilling the character’s inner diatribe. The all-new Lizzie McGuire will stream on Disney+. As of now there’s no information on other cast members or a start date.
