Hilary Duff set to reprise 'Lizzie McGuire' role.

Actress Hilary Duff, who starred in the teen Disney sitcom 'Lizzie McGuire' from 2001 to 2004, will be back to reprise her popular role for a new series.

Duff, now 31, was at the recent D23 Expo to announce a reboot series that will stream on the new service Disney+.

'Lizzie is also a grownup,' the actress said at the event. 'She's older, she's wiser, she has a much bigger shoe budget. She has her dream job. She has kinda the perfect life right now.'

Duff, who is now a mom to two children, currently stars in 'Younger.' On Instagram, she announced, 'Surprise! I've been trying to contain this excitement for a long time while this has been in the works! I am beyond excited to be home again, back with my girl [Lizzie] and into her 30s.'

The series' original showrunner, Terri Minsky, will return for the revival, which doesn't have a definite date yet.

Duff also disclosed that her 2003 film will be part of the new streaming service's lineup: 'If you needed yet another reason to get Disney+, ['The Lizzie McGuire Movie'] will be living there!'
