'The Lizzie McGuire Movie' Reimagined As A Thriller Shows Paolo’s True Colors
You're lying to yourself if you weren't jealous Lizzie McGuire (Hilary Duff) got to take a class trip to Rome in the eighth freaking grade in The Lizzie McGuire Movie. She traveled to an exotic country, became ~besties~ (for a hot minute) with a pop star named Paolo (Yani Gellman), and finally kissed Gordo (Adam Lamberg). Despite some issues, it was a fun trip full of adventure.
But what if it wasn't?
YouTuber Elle Mills recut The Lizzie McGuire Movie's trailer, turning it from a family-friendly escapade into a sinister thriller. Sure, Paolo was relatively harmless, just a grade-A phony faker in the singing department, but Mills reimagined him as a malicious villain with an extra suspicious agenda. Word of advice, Lizzie: If some stranger wants you to ride on the back of his moped through the streets of Rome, tell him that's not what dreams are made of.
