Attention all Lizzie McGuire fans — This is what dreams are made of!
Even though at this moment we still aren’t sure what is happening with the Lizzie McGuire reboot, Hilary Duff and the rest of the cast are still giving the fans some love.
Duff posted to her Instagram page a video of herself, along with the rest of the Lizzie McGuire fast, for a virtual retro table read!
“Hey everyone, it’s Hilary here,” Duff began her video. “I am so excited that you are joining us today. Thank you so much for following the safer at home guidelines. We hope everyone is doing alright.”
“And I got the most amazing phone call last week from Jake Thomas, who plays my brother, Matt, on Lizzie McGuire. And he threw out having a virtual table read of one of our old episodes of Lizzie McGuire and I thought there’s no better way to cure boredom and to provide a little bit of entertainment to everyone who’s stuck at home.”
Hilary Duff then went on to show everyone who is joining the virtual read who, Duff states, has not been together in a very long time. The cast included LaLaine (Miranda), Adam Lamberg (Gordo), Jake Thomas (Matt, and who when was introduced said “I want to play Gordo this time”), Hailey Todd (Lizzie’s Mom), Bobby Carradine (Lizzie’s Dad), Ashlie Brillault (Kate), Davida Brittany Williams (Claire) Kyle Downes (Larry Tudgeman) as well as some of the writers from the show.
Duff and the cast also announced that they are doing this virtual retro table read for a few great causes. They asked viewers who are able to donate, to visit the links on her post, which included amazing organizations such as Front Line Responders, No Kid Hungry, Baby to Baby, Support and Feed, LA Food Bank and NY Food Bank.
Thomas then began speaking on the famous Lizzie McGuire theme song and let fans in on a little secret — That every single time the cast had a table read, they would all sing the theme song. (They went on to sing the theme song — to the best of their ability.)
The cast then went on to begin the table read. The original episode was shot the week of November 13, 2000 and aired May 11, 2001. On Wednesday, November 8, 2000 the entire cast got together for a table read, and now 7,118 days they did again. The cast then went on to begin their table read of What’s Lizzie Thinking?
You can watch the full table read on Hilary Duff’s Instagram page below.
