Hilary Duff Says 'It Would Be A Dream' For Hulu To Take Over Lizzie McGuire Revival After Tensions With Disney+
Hilary Duff has something very important to address. The actress made it very clear that she wishes the revival of her show, Lizzie McGuire aired on Hulu instead of Disney Plus!
This comes after Terri Minsky, its creator, ended up being fired earlier in the year.
The actress took to social media to break her silence, saying that she ‘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.’
Hilary argued that as far as she is concerned, it would be great if, similar to Lizzie’s ‘experiences as a preteen/teenager navigating life were authentic, her next chapters are equally as real and relatable.’
In the end, she wrote that if Disney would let the revival show start airing on Hulu instead, it would be a ‘dream.’
This is directly related to the fact that Love Simon’s small screen spin-off has also moved to Hulu after Disney Plus deemed it not ‘family friendly!’
Minsky also previously expressed her wishes for Lizzie McGuire to move to Hulu after learning about what had happened to the Love, Simon spin-off.
Duff also shared a screenshot on her platform earlier this week, obviously criticizing Disney Plus for that decision.
It was the title of an online article that read: ‘Love, Simon TV Show Pulled From Disney+ as It's Not 'Family Friendly,’’ which she highlighted.
Alongside it, she cryptically wrote: ‘Sounds familiar.’
One insider previously shared via Variety that the actress was upset that Disney had fired Minsky.
Apparently, ‘the two women wanted to do a more adult version of Lizzie for the revival, while Disney wants a show that would appeal to kids and families, something more akin to the original series.’
