The original McGuire's are reuniting. It's been confirmed that the original cast members Hallie Todd, Rovert Carradine and Jake Thomas are all set to return for the roles of Jo, Sam and Matt McGuire on the upcoming Disney Plus sequel series.
We're so glad because it wouldn't be the same without them!
The gang got together for the first time in 15 years this week for the first read-through of the sequel's first episode. How cute do they look!
"We are incredibly excited to bring back one of the most popular Disney Channel series of all time along with some beloved and familiar faces. With Terri at the helm and Hilary, Hallie, Robert, and Jake back after all these years, it's our honor to welcome the McGuire family into the Disney Plus family," said Ricky Strauss, the president of Content & Marketing at Disney Plus.
The sequel's story picks up when Lizzie is about to turn 30. She may seem like she has it all - her dream job as an assistant to a fancy New York City decorator, her dream guy and an amazing Brooklyn apartment - but it's not all as it seems.
Luckily Lizzie has her friends, her loving family and her 13-year-old alter-ego in animated form to help her navigate adulthood.
"Just like there is no 'Lizzie McGuire' without Hilary Duff, there is no McGuire family without Hallie, Robert, and Jake. The original series holds a special place in the hearts of so many, and we can't wait to introduce fans, both old and new, to an older, wiser, yet still perfectly imperfect Lizzie," said Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer at Disney Channels Worldwide.
We are honestly TOO exicted for this.
