Hey now, hey now: A whole new generation is about to meet Lizzie McGuire.

Hilary Duff is officially set to reprise one of her most beloved roles, making a surprise appearance during the Disney+ presentation at D23 Expo on Friday to announce that she will play Lizzie once again in a new revival series for Disney's streaming service.

"Just like me and everybody who loved Lizzie and grew up with her, Lizzie also grew up," Duff said onstage. "She is older, she is wiser, she has a much bigger shoe budget, which is exciting. She has her dream job. She has the perfect life."

In the new Lizzie McGuire series, from the original series creator Terri Minsky, Lizzie is a millennial navigating life in New York City. She is on the cusp of her 30th birthday, working her dream job as the apprentice to a top designer and dating her dream man. She also still has 13-year-old Lizzie blabbering around in her head.

It is unclear whether her Lizzie McGuire co-stars Lalaine, Adam Lamberg, Jake Thomas, Hallie Todd and Robert Carradine will return. No dates were given on when filming would start or when the Disney+ series will debut.

Duff played the titular middle schooler -- and voiced her animated alter ego -- when the show aired for two seasons on Disney Channel from 2001 to 2004, and again in the 2003 film, The Lizzie McGuire Movie. All 65 episodes of the original series will be made available to stream on Disney+, which officially launches Nov. 12.

Duff, who currently stars on TV Land's Younger, told ET last December that there had been "some conversations" about a Lizzie McGuire revival, though she said at the time, "It's definitely not a go."

Still, she admitted the chance to get to play Lizzie again would be a nice full-circle moment for her career. "I mean, I love her so much," Duff said. "I think she was so important to girls at an important time in their life. If she could be important to them again at this age, I think that would be amazing."

Fifteen years after Lizzie McGuire originally wrapped, Duff has two kids of her own, 7-year-old son Luca and 10-month-old daughter Banks. However, when she spoke with ET she said she doesn't think Lizzie would be a mom. Not yet, at least.

"But she might be getting there soon," she teased.
