Hilary Duff shaded Disney+ after the Love, Simon TV show was pulled from the streaming service for not being “family-friendly”.
Posting a photo of a headline declaring that the show will be moved from Disney to Hulu for its adult themes, Duff wrote, “Sounds familiar.”
This news comes a few weeks after the reboot of Lizzie McGuire was also halted at Disney+. Fans are speculating that the reboot might have received the same feedback as Love, Simon, hence Hilary Duff’s comment.
The show Love, Simon is based on the young adult novel Simon and the Homosapien Agenda and the film Love, Simon starring Nick Robinson. The story revolves around teenager Simon who is trying to navigate high school while also being gay.
However, the show has been moved to Hulu since last week and has been renamed to Love, Victor. The new show will also star new actors and might deviate from the original story.
Now, it seems even the Lizzie McGuire reboot was going to follow adult themes, due to Disney+ stalling its production.
The 32-year-old actress announced the Lizzie McGuire reboot back in August. Duff was going to reprise her role as Lizzie. The reimagined version will show the character as a 30-year-old woman trying to go through life in New York City. The series will also include the animated version of little Lizzie who offers witty remarks and funny commentary on what her character is thinking.
However, in January it was announced that the show’s original creator Terri Minsky was going to step down as the showrunner for the reboot due to creative differences.
Disney+ has not confirmed the release date for Lizzie McGuire.
