The D23 Expo is underway at the Anaheim Convention Center and among the panels on parks and details about things like the new Marvel-themed land Avengers Campus coming to Disney California Adventure, lots of buzz was happening over the programming coming to Disney+, the entertainment giant’s streaming service.
Among the series’ getting the loudest cheers? That would be the revival of “Lizzie McGuire,” a Disney Channel staple that made Hilary Duff a star.
Even Disney+ said it’s what dreams are made of on its Twitter account.

And it brought back waves of elementary school nostalgia for some.
Am I going to get Disney+ because of the Lizze McGuire reboot? Yes. Yes I am. Lizzie McGuire defined my upper elementary school life and I need to see the reboot.

Clearly plenty of people have been taking Jiminy Cricket’s advice to wish upon a star since dreams do come true.

Even Duff told “Good Morning America” that it’s a “dream come true.”
.@HilaryDuff to @Ginger_Zee on reprising her role as Lizzie McGuire on @disneyplus: “It’s a dream come true. This job meant everything to me.” WE ARE SO EXCITED! https://t.co/KdLAHBJ1r1 pic.twitter.com/F02p6NZmw8

Maybe the nostalgia wave is part of Disney’s marketing plan to get people to sign up for a new streaming service when everyone already subscribes to streaming services.
Everyone: I’m not paying for another steaming service.
Disney+: We’re bringing back Lizzie McGuire.
