Disney Has Announced A Reboot Of ‘Lizzie McGuire’ And We Just Want To See More Of Miranda Sanchez

Mexican-American Miranda Sanchez might not have been the titular lead of “Lizzie McGuire” but she was undoubtedly the character with the most heart, wit and lessons. Here’s a look at the character who brought all the realness to Disney channel’s best show.

1. That time she dealt with body dysmorphia.

Disney Channel

In the episode “Inner Beauty” Miranda struggles with her self-image after seeing a photo of herself. The whole episode ended up sending Miranda into an unhealthy tailspin so bad that she…

2. She tried to deal with her body dysmorphia by not eating and explained why.

Disney Channel

After wanting to make sure that she looked super skinny for a music video project Gordo was shooting,  Miranda started skipping meals and nearly passed out during dance practice. After a sit down with her friends, Miranda spoke honestly about why she felt the way she did.

3. The time she didn’t  get a Valentine’s Day card.

Disney Channel

And gave the commercial holiday a great big middle finger and stuck out her tongue.

4. That time she predicted the future of all mean “cool kids.”

Disney Channel

It was a bit harsh, but the moment, like most MIranda moments, did it’s job in making sure Lizzie always remembered where they were headed. 

5. When she reminded Gordo that being grown up is not that great.

Disney Channel

Literally never a truer word has been spoken. Because meanwhile the rest of us have to deal with taxes.

6. That time she was smarter than her art teacher

Disney Channel

I mean really how many times have you sat in a class and wondered why you had to do something instead of dream about N’Sync.

7. And that time she totally nailed the feelings that come with growing up.

Disney Channel

Yes, girl yes. This is the definition of growing up and out of your adolescence. 

8. When she did spider braids before girls at Coachella.

Disney Channel

And rocked so many other hair styles you wouldn’t dare to pull off. Remember her pom pom phase?

9. When she was all like “I’m stronger than the person you think I am.”

Disney Channel

It’s hard being friends with someone who always gets to take center stage of your life, we get it Miranda. This episode of her sticking up for herself to her own BFF was so real. 

10. When her side eye was so on point with Gordo.

Disney Channel

Miranda’s side eye game was actually always so on point with Gordo. Those two had a rocky relationship and Miranda was always around to remind him to chill it. 

11. When she was the best friend ever for building her friend up.

Disney Channel

Even if it was the cheesiest chant ever and Lizzie acted selfish at times, Miranda was a great friend.

12. That time when Lizzie and Gordo went to Italy and she passed to chill in Mexico.

Disney Channel

Fans of Miranda were super bummed to find Miranda nixed from the “Lizzie McGuire Movie” but we got when we learend that she’d ditched the show to be with her family in Mexico.

13. When Lizzie overreacted about getting a bra and Miranda was like “chillll.”

That time, Lizzie  decided that in order to be popular she needed a bra was the most important episode ever. Mostly because Miranda was mortified to find her friend was so shallow.

14. And that time when she was this honest with Lizzie about her outfit.

Disney Channel

Every friend needs a BFF who will tell her truth about her outfit chose. While this one was forced upon Lizzie on a very important day, Miranda was not afraid to get real.

15. When, LBR, she brought better moves to that “Play” music video than Lizzie.

Disney Channel

There’s a reason why they put Miranda in the front for this dance scene. And it has absolutely everything to do with Lizzie’s average moves ( sorry Lizzie!)

16. When she was too cool to hurt the environment

Disney Channel

That faux leather and fur coat made the funky combination look just so damn good.

17. When she did the grunge look better than Lizzie

Disney Channel

Lizzie’s style was always cute and fashion foraward but Miranda always pushed the status-quo with her edge. 

18. That time she was all about the rebelde.

Disney Channel

Can you deny that this “rebel” shit was not the ultimate look of the series? Didn’t think so. 

19. That time she freaked out after getting a B in class.

Disney Channel

Miranda is every child of immigrants who did not come all of this way for their kid to get a B in class. Gordo might have been the self-proclaimed group of the squad’s trio but Miranda was undoubtedly the cool beans school star Gordo wanted to be. 

20. The times her sense of humor was always better than everyone else.

Disney Channel

“Where is Lizzie? She never misses lunch. It’s her favorite class!”

Most recently, RBD, the surviving band of original Rebelde members, dropped a new single to make the pandemic a little more tolerable.

“EWS is renowned for the excellence of its illustrious student body, young people ready to dazzle the world. In these halls, we have shaped icons who have gone on to entertain millions with their talent, and our classrooms have turned students into stars, ready for the big stage,” reads the letter. “Today, our Board of Directors is proud to present the next generation of young people who will become part of our prestigious institution in the upcoming 2022 school year.

Sasha Calle Is Officially The DC Universe’s First-Ever Latina Supergirl

The DC Universe just got a heck of a lot more Brown.

This week, it was announced that 25-year-old actress Sasha Calle is poised to be the franchise’s newest superstar. Known for portraying Lola Rosales on “The Young and the Restless,” the actress will take on the role of Supergirl in the DC film franchise.

Her first appearance as Supergirl expected to debut in the upcoming movie “The Flash.”

Calle, who is of Colombian heritage, is set to become the first Latina ever to play the role of Supergirl.

Calle earned her first breakout role in 2018 after being cast in the long-running CBS daytime drama “The Young & The Restless” as a food truck owner and the youngest sister of brothers in the midst of a toxic rivalry.

Calle earned a Daytime Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Young Performer in a Drama Series category last year for her part in the series.

“On behalf of everyone at ‘The Young and the Restless,’ we’d like to congratulate Sasha Calle on making history and being chosen to play the first Latina Supergirl,” the daytime drama’s executive producer Anthony Morina and co-executive producer/head writer Josh Griffith shared in a statement. “The role of Supergirl is a perfect fit for someone of Sasha’s immense talent, and we wish her all the best as she takes on this groundbreaking role.”

According to Deadline, Calle beat out 425 actresses for the part of Supergirl.

Andy Muschietti director of The Flash gave Calle the good news about her role over Zoom.

“Can I freak out for a second?” Calle asked before announcing the news to someone offscreen. “I got it,” she said to the person off-camera while doing a dance in her chair. Turning back to Muschietti, Calle admitted “I’m probably not going to stop crying all day.”

Calle shared the moment to her Instagram admitting she was still processing the big news.

“A Latina superhero?!” Calle wrote of the news in Spanish. “On what planet?! Well, on this planet! What joy and what pride.” Thanking her mom, Calle wrote, “I adore you with everything I have. You are an example of a superhero.”
