Disney+'s upcoming Lizzie McGuire reboot is reportedly in limbo after the show's original creator left the production. Variety reports Terri Minsky has walked away from her showrunner gig, leaving Lizzie on hiatus for now. "Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series,” a Disney rep told the outlet. “After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the show.” A replacement for Minsky has yet to be named and series star Hilary Duff had not commented on the news as of Friday morning.
