    Let's recap:

    Last fall, Disney+ began production on the much-anticipated Lizzie McGuire reboot. Two episodes had already been filmed when production was abruptly shut down to "put a new lens" on the show and "move in a different direction."

    Moreover, the original creator and showrunner of the series, Terri Minsky, was fired. Just this week, she confirmed that production had shut down because she and Disney had a difference of opinion on how Lizzie should be portrayed in the revival.

    Also this week, Hilary Duff seemingly threw shade at Disney+ when the platform moved its Love, Simon spinoff series, Love, Victor to Hulu over fears that the show wasn't "family-friendly" enough.

    She wrote that the news "sounded familiar," possibly suggesting that the same thing had happened with the Lizzie McGuire reboot, but left it at that.

    Well, in a new Instagram post, the 32-year-old laid it all out on the line, publicly asking Disney to move the Lizzie McGuire reboot to Hulu.

    "Was incredibly excited to launch Lizzie on D+ and my passion remains! However, I feel a huge responsibility to honor the fans' relationship with Lizzie who, like me, grew up seeing themselves in her."

    "I'd be doing a disservice to everyone by limiting the realities of a 30-year-old's journey to living under the ceiling of a PG rating," she explained.

    She continued, "It's important to me that just as her experiences as a preteen/teenager navigating life were authentic, her next chapters are equally as real and relatable."

    "It would be a dream if Disney would let us move the show to Hulu, if they were interested, and I could bring this beloved character to life again. ❤️"

    When filming first halted, Disney said it had plans to "resume production," aka the show wasn't canceled, so there's still hope.
