Late last year Disney Plus revealed they were working on a new version of the show.

However, Disney have since moved away from the project.

Sources tell Variety that Minsky and Hilary Duff wanted a more adult version of the show.

Disney were initially on board with their approach but executives weren't happy with the content when on set.

'Hilary has a grasp of Lizzie McGuire at 30 that needs to be seen. It’s a wonderful thing to watch.'

'I would love the show to exist, but ideally I would love it if it could be given that treatment of going to Hulu and doing the show that we were doing.'
