The streaming platform has a lot happening this year.January 1, 2020
The streaming service is releasing a mix of original movies and shows, along with the nostalgic reboot.
Disney+ shared a video of some of their upcoming releases on Twitter revealing some of this year’s releases. Along with Toy Story 4, The Lion King and Aladdin, Lizzie McGuire is also heading to the platform.
The original series premiered Jan. 21, 2001. It ran for two seasons, consisting of 65 episodes, before ending in 2004. The show was also adapted into a full-length feature film, The Lizzie McGuire Movie, in 2003.
In October, Hilary Duff confirmed she and her original family would be reprising their roles. Robert Carradine and Hallie Todd are returning to portray her parents. Younger brother Matt will still be portrayed by Jake Thomas.
She later took to the official Disney+ Instagram to share her excitement for the series. She touches on her returning family before being wholesomely interrupted by Lamberg who says, “The fam’s not complete without me. Gordo’s back.” He also makes a reference to the film spin-off’s classic “What Dreams Are Made Of” before debuting the new series’ logo.
The second season of The Mandalorian will also premiere on the streaming service along with season 2 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.
Check out the full preview of what’s coming to Disney + below.

More on Lizzie McGuire
Adults everywhere lost it when news broke that Duff would be reprising her role as Lizzie McGuire for a Disney+ reboot. First rumored at the end of 2018, the reboot plans were confirmed at D23 Expo in August.
The original series and spin-off feature film dominated the early 2000s. The show gave us a time capsule of legendary decade-appropriate looks. Between Duff as McGuire and Lalaine as BFF Miranda Sanchez, the show highlighted some iconic hairstyles including crimps, color and beyond.
The original run of Lizzie McGuire followed the titular character throughout her teen years, expressing her real thoughts and emotions through an animated alter ego. While we know Duff will be returning alongside her original casted family, not much else was revealed about that animated alter ego until now.
