We stood by her during her unfortunate gothic phase, cheered for her when she tried out for rhythmic gymnastics, and felt her pain when the Career Aptitude Test told her she was going to be a cosmetologist. We sympathized with her when she went bra shopping for the first time with her mom and laughed with her when she completely owned the shit out of that unicorn sweater on picture day. And although an entire generation of girls may have been put on suicide watch after she kissed Aaron Carter (who turned out SO well) under the mistletoe during the 2001 Christmas Special, we admit it–we all loved Lizzie McGuire.
And now, 10 years after the finale back in 2004, word on the street is that a full-on reboot may be in the works. When asked about the possibility of a “Lizzie McGuire” reunion in a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Hilary Duff seemed extremely interested in the idea, responding, “I love it! I would be totally open to it. My schedule is a little busy right now. But um…why not?” Exactly. Why not? Duff continued, saying, “I mean, so many people loved her. I loved her. Honestly, working on that show, I got so strong with my physical comedy and all the things that they would throw at me. I got covered in goo every week, and I got, like, smashed in the face with a locker every single week. And all this, I mean it was a really, really fun show. And obviously people really loved her,” Duff added.
With so many unanswered plot questions at the end of “The Lizzie McGuire Movie,” Duff even suggested a theme for the reunion. “Maybe a Lizzie: Where Are You Now? like 10 years later,” she said.
That’s what my dreams are made of.
