Disney Plus

It seems our High School Musical heartthrob, Zac Efron, is going back to his Disney roots, starring in a remake of the 1980’s classic, Three Men and a Baby.

It was revealed on The Hollywood Reporter that the remake is intended for Disney+, the hugely popular, family-friendly streaming service, with Disney’s live-action division running point. Producing the film will be Gordon Gray, who’s best-known for his gripping sports dramas, such as The Rookie or more recently The Way Back, which starred Ben Afleck.

It has yet to be revealed which character Efron will be playing, or who his co-stars will be. One thing is certain though — whoever they are, they’ll have big shoes to fill. The original 1987 family-comedy brought together some of Hollywood’s best actors of the era, featuring Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg and Ted Danson. Directed by Leonard Nimoy, the film turned into a big success, becoming the first live-action Disney film to cross the $100 million mark in the US.

The film follows three men living in New York, as they unexpectedly find themselves caring for a little baby. Of course shenanigans ensue and mysteries unfold, resulting in a highly entertaining flick for the whole family to enjoy. Following the film's success,  a sequel was released in 1990, titled Three Men and a Little Lady

Zac's return to Disney will be a big change from some of the more serious projects which he's been involved with in recent years. Most recently, you can find Zac Efron on Netflix, in a documentary series, which he also executive produced, called Down to Earth, where he tours the world and explores methods sustainability.

Hey now, hey now, this is what dreams are made of!

Gordo is officially in the Lizzie McGuire reboot and we couldn’t be happier.

Disney just shared the first snap of a grown-up Gordo and Lizzie. 

Hilary Duff and Adam Lamberg have barely aged since the show went off the air and we need to know their secrets.

Disney captioned the snap, ‘Reunited and it feels so Gordo! Adam Lamberg returns and joins onscreen bestie @HilaryDuff for #LizzieMcGuire, coming soon to #DisneyPlus.’

Fans can’t help but wonder if Lizzie and Gordo’s romance lasted or if they went their separate ways after high school.

We do know Lizzie has ‘a thing’ with Ethan Craft but could there be a possible love triangle in the works? We hope so.

Lizzie’s entire family, including not so little brother Matt will return for the reboot. Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine, and Jake Thomas have all been officially cast in the reboot.

However, we’ve yet to hear about Lizzie best friend Miranda, but watch this space.

Speaking about returning to her Disney roots, the actress said, “It's been fun to find the new version of [Lizzie]. She's a little less frantic and a little more confident.”

“She is going to be coming across some challenges that the show is gonna serve up and a lot of what people want to see or the answers to questions that they never got,” the actress teased.

The show will be available on Disney + in the coming months but fans on this side of the pond will have to wait until March 31, 2020 to subscribe to the streaming service.

Nothing makes us feel better than a classic Disney movie. The nostalgic feelings they conjure up always cheer us up when we’re down, which is why we are so excited about Disney+.

The streaming service of our dreams is launching in the US this month but it looks like Ireland and the UK will be waiting quite some time to avail of the services.

According to Disney, the streaming service will be available here on March 31, 2020. It’s disappointing news but patience is a virtue.

The service is set to be beyond impressive with hundreds of classic Disney movies, old-school TV shows and all of the beloved High School Musical movies available to watch to your heart’s content.

We are more than ready to sob over The Lion King, swoon over Zac Efron and cringe at the style in Lizzie McGuire.

As well as Disney delights, the streaming service will also host a heap of Marvel movies, which we’re awfully excited to re-watch.

The Lizzie McGuire reboot will also be on the service, which means we are 100 percent subscribing to it once it is launched next spring.

For now, we’ll just have to dig out our old Disney DVDs and try to figure out how to use the rusty DVD player again.

Roll on March 31, 2020.

We're all pure delighted over the news that Lizzie McGuire is returning to our screens in a reboot, but it's time to scope out what Hilary Duff's co-stars are currently up to.

The show will be shown on Disney's new streaming platform, Disney Plus, in 2020. Lizzie is now a 30-year-old trying to make a name for herself in Manhattan, and already we're hooked.

The original cast had a reunion in 2015, but Gordo was nowhere to be found. Miranda (Lalaine Vergara-Paras) and Matt (Jake Thomas) showed their faces, but not Adam Lamberg.

34-year-old Adam appeared in a couple of small indie movies following the end of Lizzie McGuire, such as When Do We Eat? and Beautiful Loser, but generally has gone off the grid.

Lamberg erased his social media accounts and stepped away from acting after that, and now Google autocorrects his name to Adam Lambert if you search for him.

Google have since fixed the awkward error, but Adam Lambert's successful pop career is far from similar to Adam Lamberg's life. He's living his best existence, working for New York's Irish Arts Centre.

After studying geography at UC Berkeley, he became a Development Associate at the arts centre, and has an MPA degree from NYC's Baruch College. 

The 'Where's Gordo?' hunt got so big that the Irish Arts Centre got involved in 2015, which is simply gas:

Lamberg said in a Tumblr chat a couple of years ago:

"Life is fantastic, though I constantly have too much time on my hands and am constantly struggling to find intriguing and creative ways with which to fill it. Other than that, very little to complain about… (Who am I kidding? I'm a New Yorker. We love to complain.)"

He seems to be surviving and thriving, but will Gordo be involved in the Lizzie McGuire reboot? We won't know until 2020 unfortunately…stay tuned.
