Disney is taking us back to the early 2000s! Because Lizzie McGuire and the Princess Diaries are finally coming back into our lives!
Hold my glitter lipgloss! ‘Lizzie McGuire’ is getting a reboot and ‘Princess Diaries 3’ is coming? Talk about a trip down memory lane! So if you grew up as a Disney kid, then you would know just how big of a deal this is. And if not, shame on you! Lizzie and Mia are icons! ICONS! There is not a single millennial woman out there who didn’t dream of getting a makeover like Princess Mia’s and dreaded being called out as an outfit repeater like ‘Lizzie McGuire’. We cringe at the thought! So over the weekend on August 24, Disney+ announced at the D23 Expo that ‘Lizzie McGuire’ and the ‘Princess Diaries’ are truly making a come back.
If you’re not familiar with Lizzie Mcguire here’s a little background, Lizzie Mcguire is the story of an average teenage girl who tackles everyday teenage life issues. And with the help of her best friends Miranda and Gordo, they get into all sorts of misadventures. But also learning valuable life lessons along the way.
And now that Lizzie Mcguire is coming back, we are beyond thrilled that Hilary Duff is also coming back to reprise the role! She unveiled the big surprise on her Instagram post by uploading this video:

SURPRISE!!! I’ve been trying to contain this excitement for a loooong time while this has been in the works! I am beyond excited to be home again, back with my girl ♥️…and into her 30’s #bringbackbutterflyclips #lizziemcguire #thisiswhatdreamsaremadeof #lizzieforpresident #DisneyPlus #D23Expo . . . . . . Also, If you needed yet another reason to get Disney+ ….the #lizziemcguiremovie will be living there!
It’s no surprise that the internet went crazy at this news. And had big-star celebs like Jimmy Fallon, Meghan Trainor, and Ashley Tisdale commenting on Hilary Duff’s post.
So the show will now follow a 30-year-old Lizzie living her life in New York City. Hilary Duff said during the convention that Lizzie now has “her dream job, the perfect life right now working as an apprentice to a fancy New York City decorator, (and) the perfect man who owns a fancy restaurant.” But unfortunately, no specific date has been set for the release yet, but we’ll most likely hear from Disney after the launch of Disney+ on November 12. We absolutely cannot wait to see what new adventures Lizzie will have now!
Princess Diaries 3
After FIFTEEN long years, The Princess Diaries is finally getting a third movie! In an interview early this year Anne Hathaway has revealed that they are indeed working on a Princess Diaries 3. And finally, it has been confirmed at the D23 Expo last August 24. So naturally, the Twitterverse went absolutely crazy.
