Here's the Real Reason Why the 'Lizzie McGuire' Reboot Is on Hold (Report)

Lizzie McGuire‘s much-anticipated reboot series is still on hold, and there’s a reason why.

After Hilary spoke out on social media on Tuesday night (February 25), seemingly suggesting that her show faced a similar dilemma as the Love, Simon series that was moved to Hulu for not being reportedly “family friendly” enough for Disney+, a new report from Variety could confirm her frustration.

As we already knew, the show’s production halted in January due to the firing of showrunner Terri Minsky, who spoke out for the story.

“I am so proud of the two episodes we did. Hilary has a grasp of Lizzie McGuire at 30 that needs to be seen. It’s a wonderful thing to watch. I would love the show to exist, but ideally I would love it if it could be given that treatment of going to Hulu and doing the show that we were doing. That’s the part where I am completely in the dark. It’s important to me that this show was important to people. I felt like I wanted to do a show that was worthy of that kind of devotion,” she said.

Hilary did not comment on the story. However, “multiple sources close to the production tell Variety that the star is none too happy with the Mouse House for firing Minsky. 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.”

The fate of the reboot is still unknown. In case you didn’t see it, here’s what Hilary said prior to this report…
