After the controversial reboot of Lizzie McGuire, Hilary Duff is opening up. The Disney alum recently stated that she is "grateful" for getting to step into her iconic character Lizzie McGuire's shoes one last time. While chatting with Good Morning America today, the 33-year-old, currently pregnant actress and singer spoke openly about the Lizzie McGuire reboot, which was initially scheduled to premiere on Disney+ before it was cancelled due to behind-the-scenes issues. "It was a big disappointment obviously," Duff told the outlet. "I will forever be grateful for the two episodes that we did shoot." "It was a really special two weeks of my life," she added.


Late last year, the "Come Clean" songstress confirmed that she would no longer be moving forward with the planned reboot of the popular Disney Channel original series in a lengthy social media post. "I've been so honoured to have the character Lizzie in my life," she wrote on Instagram. "She has made such a lasting impact on many, including myself. To see fans' loyalty and love for her, to this day, means so much to me. I know the efforts and conversations have been everywhere trying to make a reboot work but, sadly & despite everyone's best efforts, it isn't going to happen."


Admitting that she was "very sad" about the decision, Duff said the "stars just didn't align" to create an "honest and authentic" modern-day version of the character. "I want any reboot of Lizzie to be honest and authentic to who Lizzie would be today. It's what the character deserves," she added. "We can all take a moment to mourn the amazing woman she would have been and the adventures we would have taken with her. I'm very sad, but I promise everyone tried their best and the stars just didn't align. Hey now, this is what 2020s made of."
