+---Topic: Disney and Lizzie break up started by Tinas Travel

According to an article in my paper today, Disney and the start of Lizzie Mcguire have split. It seems that Hillary Duff wants to branch out from her role as a middle schooler on Disney. She also wanted a lot more money for an expanded series and movie sequal that Disney wanted to pay.
I wonder who will be the next 'big' star on the Disney Channel.
You would think they would get wise and go back to some of the great older programming instead of all the teen stuff.

I sure would like to see them go back to the older stuff and attracting a family audience rather than trying just for the teens, too.
Here's what I posted last night about this story, in the Disney Live-Action Features message area ( I've since closed the topic there and it is pointing to this thread for all replies. )
