Hilary Duff Dishes On Possibility of 'Lizzie McGuire' & 'Hannah Montana' Crossover!

OMG! Could you imagine a Lizzie McGuire and a Hannah Montana crossover?!

Hilary Duff recently opened up about the possibilities of that actually happening.

“Oh my god, I’ve never heard that one. But you might be starting something right now,” Hilary told Cosmopolitan. “I love Miley [Cyrus], I recently was on her show that she created during the quarantine, and she’s just awesome.”

“She’s always showing me so much love and it kind of embarrasses me in a way,” she continued. “I’m like, come on, you’re like the epitome of cool and it’s really sweet that she’s just so vocal about being a fan growing up with me and I love her. And I don’t know, I’ve never thought about a Hannah Montana and Lizzie McGuire crossover, but never say never! Anything goes these days, right?”

Hilary also shared another update on the status of the Lizzie McGuire reboot.

“Yeah, you know what? I feel just as excited as everyone else. Obviously, I have felt love for that character and I feel particularly dedicated to the fans about making the exact show that it should be,” Hilary dished. “So you know, we started shooting, we stopped shooting and went back to the drawing board with Disney+, Disney, and myself to come up with something that works for all of us, and we’re still in the middle of that process.”

“Everything kind of got put on hold, especially now because of COVID. But no, we’re talking weekly and I feel really good about it. It’s a work in progress,” she said.

Fans are anxiously awaiting to find out what is going on with the TV series, and what service it will go to.

The star of the show recently opened up about the pandemic’s effect on the show.

“Disney has certain things that have to be met for their brand, and I totally understand that, and they totally understand my needs,” Hilary told PopSugar. “So we’re in a really good place of being like, ‘Hey, we pressed pause, and we’re regrouping.’ There’s been a lot of like creative meetings, obviously virtually. I think we’re on the right path, and I want it to happen more than anyone and they obviously feel the same way.”

“I feel like it’s our responsibility to honor the fanbase that grew up with her and where they are now,” she added about having more adult storylines.

She also shared that Disney is still “really excited” for the reboot and “dedicated to making it work.”

Hulu’s head of original Content, Craig Erwich, is providing a new update on Lizzie McGuire!

In a recent interview, the exec shared that the streaming platform currently has nothing in the works with the Disney reboot series.

Hilary Duff is still working on the Lizzie McGuire reboot!

The 32-year-old star opened up to Cosmo about how she’s still working with the team to get the show to move forward.

“I’m still talking to [the team] weekly, I don’t know,” Hilary said. “They were shooting and then everything was put on hold. And we’re just kind of figuring out if we can make this happen.”

Hilary then talked about some of the cast that are returning, and one character who probably won’t be included.

“There were plans for a lot of people to be in the show,” she continued. “So, um, I already know some of those things but I don’t know about Paolo. I think she’d probably be pretty mad to see him.”

There’s more hope for Hilary Duff‘s Lizzie McGuire reboot!

Despite production on the series being put on pause earlier this year, the show’s writers just reunited for a video chat!

Terri and Hilary had come into conflict with Disney+, who allegedly wanted to keep the show more family-friendly than the duo.

Several of the writers shared screenshots of the call on Instagram, writing comments like, “Lizzie McGuire reboot bunch,” “Still figuring it out on the way,” and “Will conquer my virtual meeting anxiety for this special brunch.”

Earlier this year, Hilary expressed interest in working on the show with Hulu. Here’s to hoping it’s a possiblity!

The First Script for the 'Lizzie McGuire' Reboot Was Revealed

The First Script for the 'Lizzie McGuire' Reboot Was Revealed

Fans are finally finding out some central plot points from the Lizzie McGuire reboot that was recently put on hold.

The script for the first episode, which was obtained by THR, “acknowledges the existence of sex with cheating as a central plot point.”

The more mature plot line aligns with Hilary Duff‘s statement that inferred that Disney+ didn’t want to move forward unless the show had a PG rating.

“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 experience as a preteen / teenager navigating her life were authentic, her next chapters are equally as real and relatable,” Hilary wrote.

Another Disney+ show was just moved to Hulu due to the subject matter.
