Hilary Duff Gives New Update on 'Lizzie McGuire' Reboot, Talks Possible 'Hannah Montana' Crossover

Hilary Duff started working on a Lizzie McGuire reboot series, but then the series was put on pause due to creative differences between the show’s creator and Disney+.

Now, the 32-year-old actress is giving another update on the status of the show and she’s even talking about a cool Hannah Montana crossover idea!

“I feel just as excited as everyone else,” Hilary told Cosmopolitan about the show. “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. 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.”

The outlet brought up the idea of a Lizzie/Hannah crossover since Miley Cyrus has credited Hilary as inspiration for her work.

“Oh my god, I’ve never heard that one. But you might be starting something right now,” Hilary said. “I love Miley, 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. 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?”
