While the 90s kids grew up, their role models from favourite television shows and films also grew up.
Its no surprise, these adults who were once a young generation from the 1990s want to see their pop culture stars on the screen once again. Basically, a teenage girl who snuck away from her class trip to Rome to stand in for an Italian pop star.
That’s right, the underrated masterpiece is all set to make a time jump of 17 years which portrays Lizzie who will be 30 now.
Well, there’s no denying Lizzie’s world is a montage of romantic colours which encapsulated the hum-drum of a middle schooler who had to deal with her annoying little brother, Matt, and a mom who means well despite her nosey tendencies. But, what caught the audience's attention is her alter-ego which told more than enough about this middle schooler.
Hilary Duff posted the news on her Instagram page Friday night that she would revive her role as Lizzie McGuire along with a video compilation of moments from the original Disney Channel show.
She wrote: “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”.
Now, the sequel will follow Lizzie as a ‘30-year-old millennial navigating life’ in New York, where she now has the dream job, dream apartment and a perfect boyfriend, but insecurities of her teenage years still haunt her.
Disney hosted D23 Expo, which was held at the Anaheim Convention Center on Friday. Hilary scooped around her character during as many surprises were unveiled for the fans.
Just like me and everybody who loved Lizzie and grew up with her, Lizzie also grew up. She is older, she is wiser, she has a much bigger shoe budget, which is exciting. She has her dream job. She has the perfect life.- Hilary Duff
