On New Year’s Day, streaming service Disney+ tweeted a minute-long video teasing its forthcoming content: beloved classics, animated shows, all ten thousand Marvel movies, etc. At the 45-second mark, for two seconds, Hilary Duff appears, leans into a car and says, “Hi, it’s me.” Underneath her is the label “Lizzie McGuire.” And thus, the first look at the Lizzie McGuire reboot emerged.


Last year, Duff told E! the show is about Lizzie all grown up as a “30-year-old millennial navigating life in New York City.” Apparently she’s single and on the “struggle bus.” Great. Can’t wait. Also, I have a few questions.

The Lizzie McGuire revival has yet to be given a release date, but rest assured I’m already taking personal offense to her newfound life in Brooklyn.

“Hey! I’m so glad you reached out. I’m actually at capacity / helping someone else who’s in crisis / dealing with some personal stuff right now, and I don’t think I can hold appropriate space for you. Could we connect [later date or time] instead / Do you have someone else you could reach out to?"
