Ricky Strauss who is the president of content and marketing for the new Disney+ platform expressed in a statement, “We are incredibly excited to bring back one of the most popular Disney Channel series of all time along with some beloved and familiar faces.  h Terri at the helm and Hilary, Hallie, Robert, and Jake back after all these years, it’s our honor to welcome the McGuire family into the Disney+ family.”

 

 

 

During During the D23 Expo convention back in August, Hilary dished, “She’s older, she’s wiser, she has a much bigger shoe budget, which is super exciting. She has her dream job. She has kind of the perfect life right now.  She’s working as an apprentice to a fancy New York City decorator.  She has her dream guy, who owns a cool SoHo restaurant. She has her dream apartment in Brooklyn. And she’s getting ready to celebrate her 30th birthday.”  Hilary continues, “She is still dealing with that 13-year-old no-holds-barred animated Lizzie that’s constantly babbling in her adult Lizzie head, so she has to deal with that. But I think that’s what’s going to make it really special.”

 

Check out this super-cute video Hilary made for Instagram a few months back, making it known to the world that Lizzie is coming back.
