It’s happening, people — filming for the upcoming Lizzie McGuire reboot has officially started! Yep, production kicked off on Tuesday, October 29 in New York City, and J-14‘s got all the photos from the first day on set.
For those who missed it, Disney announced back in August that they were rebooting the epic series, and it was seriously the best news ever. Hilary Duff, Jake Thomas, Hallie Todd and Robert Carradine are all set to reprise their roles as Lizzie, Matt, Jo and Sam McGuire.
The entire cast hasn’t been revealed just yet, so it’s still unclear if Adam Lamberg and LaLaine will be returning as well, but Hilary did reveal in September that her character isn’t unfortunately engaged to Gordo.
“Ah! I feel like them not being together is what was so good,” she said at the time. “It’s that one person that you’re like, ‘Was he the one? Is it ever going to be?’ You’re always kind of wondering. We wanted it to hurt everyone a little bit, and it’ll continue to hurt. I really hope [Adam is] going to be involved. We’ve been planning out the season and coming up with what everything looks like, and it’s so important for him to be there for part of it.”
The show, which will air on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+, will follow Lizzie in her 30s, as she is living in New York and working as an apprentice to an interior designer.
“Lizzie has grown up — she’s older, she’s wiser, she has a much bigger shoe budget,” Hilary dished. “She has her dream job, the perfect life right now working as an apprentice to a fancy New York City decorator, the perfect man who owns a fancy restaurant. She’s getting ready to celebrate her 30th birthday.”
With a plot and cast that epic, fans were already pretty excited. But now, these photos from on set have everyone even more pumped! Scroll through our gallery to check them out!
