5 Reasons Why I Can Finally Sleep At Night Knowing Gordo Is Returning For The Disney+ Lizzie McGuire Reboot
It has been long, cold, difficult wait wondering whether or not Gordo will be returning for the Lizzie McGuire reboot on Disney+. I'm not proud of my very viceral anguish but alas here we are.
Deepest apologies must go to my nearest and dearest for my behaviour during this trying time.
But! things! are! looking! up! for! my! mental! well-being! because it has just been confirmed that Adam Lamberg (who shall henceforth be referred to as 'Gordo') will be reprising his role as Lizzie's loyal friend and once-upon-a-time, love interest.
It's not lost on me how significant this announcement is, so I have gathered a list of reasons why this news should be shouted from the rooftops and celebrated!!!!! I am not overreacting!!!!!
1. Same same, but different.
Gordo looks like classic Gordo, but....well he has seen a few trips around the sun and honestly that makes me feel less old. Actually it makes me feel really old but I find comfort knowing that he has gotten old too.
2. The reboot is so much more than Lizzie.
I know the show is named after Lizzie McGuire but it was so much more than just Hilary Duff's titular character back in the day. The reboot would just not have been the same without all of the key players including Gordo. The good news is Lizzie's family is coming back and now all eyes are on Miranda...
3. Healing & Closure
Earlier this year it was announced that in this adult-Lizzie world, she and Gordo would not be romantically linked. While that was initially hard for me to hear, this feels like a really excellent way to heal those wounds and get answers to why they didn't work out. Why am I so invested? It's hard to say.
4. Fire fits
Call me shallow, call me vapid, call me a materialistic ninny but I am not going to ignore the fact the Gordo and Lizzie are serving LEWKS from on-set. Gordo is leaning into a Dadcore vibe which I'm not opposed to and Lizzie is referencing some interesting patterns which we last saw in The Lizzie McGuire movie. My pinterest board has been lacking and now it's as if everything is in ~technicolour~.
I know this might seem like a slight against Adam Lamberg but it must be said that an employed actor is a rare and coveted status in Hollywood. According to IMDB the 35-year-old's last acting credit was back in 2008 when he played Reggie in 'Beautiful Loser' which means it has been 11 years since he was employed. Get that Disney+ coin, Gordo!!!!!!!
There are one million and one more reasons why this is blessed news, but today I am just grateful and thankful and at peace. Now I will rest my head on a pillow and wake up when tomorrow comes aka in 2020 when the reboot drops. Bye.
