Hilary's statement

Hilary gushes over her co-star's character in a statement following the news of his reprisal.

'Gordo was an essential piece of the puzzle to what made the original Lizzie McGuire so authentic and beloved. I couldn't imagine the series without him.'

'I can't wait for fans to see what he's up to 15 years later and how he fits into Lizzie's adult world.'

The show will follow now 30-year-old millennial Lizzie as she navigates life in the Big Apple.

But while some things have changed, others remain and animated Lizzie will return to offer her always hilarious commentary.

Filming has already begun on the new series.

Hilary took to Instagram late last month to share a first look with fans.

She's snapped smiling in a yellow outfit on set in New York.

Disney Plus wasted no time in commenting, 'Making big moves in the Big Apple.'

While Duff's fiancé also hopped online with a cheeky response, 'Ugh I can't wait to role play.'
