Where Will Lizzie McGuire Return? Hilary Duff Says Discussions Are Ongoing
Back in February, and over on MickeyBlog.com, we blogged the story of Hilary Duff’s disagreement with Disney. Duff, who starred as the pre-teen Lizzie McGuire thinks that Disney+ isn’t the venue for the contemporary version of the character.
Check out my post:
Now, she told People.com, discussions are cordial and ongoing.
The star — who first stepped into McGuire’s shoes as a pre-teen — tells PEOPLE there’s no bad blood, and discussions are still ongoing.
“There’s still conversations going on in hopes that we can find a way to meet in the middle and both bend a little bit,” she says. “I understand that they have to protect their brand and there’s pretty strict guidelines on what that looks like.”
Adds Duff: “I just have to make sure it’s the right move for me and that I feel like I’m honoring her and the character, and that it will be relatable to the people who grew up with her because those are the people I really want to speak to.”
Meanwhile, Hilary is home; like the rest of us, trying to stay on top of family and work from the kitchen table.
Over the last couple of weeks, Duff has been social distancing at home with her kids and husband Matthew Koma. And while it hasn’t been easy, the entertainer is cherishing her extra time at home with her family while keeping her children occupied.
In the end, let’s hope that Disney and Duff can come together so that Lizzie McGuire can entertain both new and old fans alike.
