- Hilary Duff posted an Instagram story implying that Disney+ determined that the new Lizzie McGuire reboot was too mature for the streaming service.
- The highly-anticipated Love, Simon sequel series was recently announced to be moving from Disney+ to Hulu.
- Production on the Lizzie McGuire reboot stopped after filming the first two episodes.
Hilary Duff seemed to shade Disney+ on her Instagram story after news broke the the highly-anticipated Love, Simon sequel series, Love, Victor, would be moved from the new streaming service to Hulu.
Variety was one of the outlets that announced the new show's big move revealing that "sources also note that Disney felt many issues explored on the show, including alcohol use and sexual exploration, would not fit in with the family-friendly content on Disney Plus."
While Disney+ hasn't officially announced the reason why the series is moving streaming services, Hilary Duff screenshotted an article that mentioned Love, Victor's big move with the caption, "Sounds familiar."
Fans were shocked to hear that the show paused production after working on just two episodes of the highly-anticipated reboot that would show Lizzie as an adult. The show was also featured in Disney+'s 2020 announcement video, but that was released before production halted.
"Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series," a Disney spokesperson told Variety. "After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the show."
There's no word yet on whether the show will actually be appearing on Disney+ or if it's even happening anymore, but it looks like fans might expect it to make a big move as well.
