Again in February, Duff made a public plea for the collection to be moved to Disney-owned Hulu from Disney+, hoping it will permit the present extra artistic freedom to painting an older model of the character.
“I might be doing a disservice to everybody by limiting the realities of a 30 yr outdated’s journey to stay beneath the ceiling of a PG score,” she wrote in an Instagram put up on the time. “It is necessary to me that simply as her experiences as a preteen/teenager navigating life have been genuine, her subsequent chapters are equally as actual and relatable. It could be a dream if Disney would allow us to transfer the present to Hulu, in the event that they have been , and I might carry this beloved character to life once more.”
“Lizzie McGuire” aired from 2001-2004 on The Disney Channel. A movie based mostly on the collection was launched in 2003.
