It's been 15 years since Lizzie McGuire left our screens, but the beloved Disney character and her family are officially back.
Hilary Duff, who starred as Lizzie from 2001 until 2004, is reprising her iconic role for a revival of the show set to air on Disney's new streaming service, Disney+.
Instead of the clumsy teenager we all knew and adored, Lizzie will now be a 30-year-old woman navigating life in New York.
Fans are incredibly excited for new episodes and were given a glimpse into the project yesterday thanks to Duff.
The mum-of-two shared a first look at the revival, posing with a script on the set as it was being built, alongside her co-stars Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine and Jake Thomas.
The three actors make up the rest of Lizzie's on-screen family, with Todd playing Lizzie's mum Jo McGuire, Carradine portraying dad Sam McGuire and Thomas starring as her annoying younger brother Matt.
On Instagram Duff captioned the post: "We are standing in what will soon be the McGuire living room. What's up fam. We doin this."
The picture garnered a lot of attention, racking up more than 867,000 likes – including one from Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner.
The official Disney+ Instagram account commented on the photo, writing: "This. THIS IS WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF."
Lizzie McGuire followed 13-year-old Lizzie as she struggled to fit in at high school, along with her best friends Miranda (Lalaine) and Gordo (Adam Lamberg).
The show was a big hit for Disney Channel and also saw the release of The Lizzie McGuire Movie in 2003. The film grossed a massive $55 million.
Original series creator Terri Minsky is on board to work on the revival, which is the first project in a new overall deal Minsky has signed with the Disney.
The reimagined version will stay true to the original by featuring an animated version of Lizzie, who'll offer up funny and revealing commentary to tell viewers what the character is really thinking.
