Weeks after the much-anticipated reboot was put on hold, the actress posted an emotional plea on Instagram asking Disney to move the show from its streaming service to Hulu.
“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 experiences as a preteen/teenager navigating life were authentic, her next chapters are equally as real and relatable. It would be a dream if Disney would let us move the show to Hulu, if they were interested, and I could bring this beloved character to life again.”
The original “Lizzie McGuire” ran from 2001-2004 on The Disney Channel. Disney released a film based on the series in 2003. Disney+ is streaming the original series.
