Disney Plus is pulling all the stops to assure that it’s at the top of the stream wars. The platform is working on a Lizzie McGuire revival and Adam Lamberg is reprising his role as Gordo.
He joins previously announced returning cast members Hilary Duff, Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine, and Jake Thomas. Production on the series began earlier this month.
“Gordo was an essential piece of the puzzle to what made the original ‘Lizzie McGuire’ so authentic and beloved,” said Duff. “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 new story follows Lizzie as she tries to navigate through adulthood with her 13-year-old animated alter ego.
Original series creator Terri Minsky serves as showrunner and executive producer, with Duff and Rachel Winter also executive producing. Ranada Shepard will co-executive produce.
