Hilary Duff fans are demanding an apology from Disney+ following this week’s news about the streaming service.
It was announced in August 2019 that Hilary would be reviving her beloved series Lizzie McGuire for Disney+ and it was going to follow Lizzie at the age of thirty while navigating life in New York City. She recently revealed what the full plot would have been.
After the first two episodes were filmed, series creator Terri Minsky departed as showrunner due to creative differences with Disney and the show was put on hiatus. Hilary later hinted that the show wasn’t “family-friendly” enough for the streamer.
Hilary then asked Disney executives to move the series to Hulu as she’d “be doing a disservice to everyone by limiting the realities of a 30 year old’s journey to live under the ceiling of a PG rating.”
Now, Disney+ is making changes and it’s not sitting well with fans.

It was just announced this week that Disney+ is adding new parental controls to allow parents to block young children from viewing TV-MA content.
Disney+ is adding Marvel live-action series that previously were on Marvel, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, The Punisher, and The Defenders, as well as ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Fans want to know why Disney+ is allowing this content, but wouldn’t allow Lizzie McGuire to grow up. One viral tweet from a Hilary fan account has nearly 80,000 likes.
