Lizzie McGuire Reboot: Scripts Released – Cheating Storyline Not Suitable For Disney+

Lizzie McGuire is an American comedy-drama series released back on 12 January 2001. The story is about the 13-year-old girl and her best friends ride in their middle school life.

Lizzie McGuire Reboot

The 2000s hit show Lizzie McGuire of Disney is getting a reboot in Disney+. Actress Hilary Duff initially led the show.

The reboot picks up the same story, but here Lizzie McGuire is just about to turn 30. As she’s moving into her thirties, she seems to have got it all. From her dream job to a fancy Brooklyn apartment to her dream guy, seems everything but nothings always as perfect as we assume. The story will take us through the ups and downs of her adulthood.

McGuire Reboot Script Released?

A recent report suggests that the reboot of the famous 2000s show Lizzie McGuire’s script has been leaked and Disney is not happy with the content. Speculation says that the central theme of the reboot will be sex with cheating. Now, this is a genre that Disney is not familiar with as we all know Disney doesn’t showcase adult content. Even if they do, it’ll be in a restricted way as most of their viewers are not so much in the adult category.

The adult themes do not go with the companies way of family-friendly programming. But one thing Disney needs to take in consideration is that the fans of the 2000s have grown along with McGuire. So the viewer base of the show will most probably be adults as it’s a reboot of a 2000s show.

Production Of Lizzie McGuire Halted?

Disney believes that this type of storyline based on sex and cheating is not suitable for their platform. Disney has shut down the production after showrunner and creator Terri Minsky stepped down from her job. The creative differences between the streaming service and showrunner led to her exit, and since then, the show is halted.

Hillary Duff, the lead of the series, recently requested that the series be handed over to Hulu to show the journey of the character as an evolved teenager moving into her adulthood correctly. She’d love it if the series streamed in Hulu. There’s an excellent opportunity to showcase the real evolution of the character, but for some reason, Disney wants to hold it back.
