This is a series created not even for general 12-to-whatever-year-olds, but specifically for children who understand and appreciate the Disney model of “stereotypical acts performed by attractive people exactly as the script intends them to be performed, while the biggest, fakest audience laughs along.”
While we’re sure Girl Meets World will revolve around the same kind of cheesy sanitized jokes and emotions of the original, there’s no way this update will be able to come close to touching its predecessor in terms of guest stars and cameos.
Like most early-‘80s babies, I often revel in the ironic enjoyment of shows that I unironically paid way too much attention to in my youth, with the brain-melting adventures and drama of Saved by the Bell and Full House filling up parts of my memory banks where math should be.
Who better to revisit the poetry that was Boy Meets World than Samuel L. Jackson? Because... well, things sound awesome when Samuel L. Jackson says them. Jackson visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and took the stage to perform a slam poem about the beloved 90s sitcom Boy Meets World.
Last November, we learned that a spin-off/sequel project for Boy Meets World was in development for Disney Channel. As "in development" doesn't mean an automatic greenlight to series, we've hung on every major bit of news for the project in the hopes that the pilot would eventually go to series. Signs pointed toward good news, but we had to wait for it. It's finally here. Girl Meets World has officially been ordered to series at Disney Channel.
The word "adorable" would be a fair adjective to describe Boy Meets World's Cory and Topanga in their earlier years on the 90s sitcom, and unsurprisingly, the same would most certainly apply to the 11-year-old girl who has been cast to play the part of their daughter and the star of Disney Channel's planned Boy Meets World sequel/spin-off pilot Girl Meets World.
With the confirmed involvement of Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel for the Boy Meets World sequel pilot Disney Channel has in the works, fans have gone one to speculate over whether or not some of the other cast members will return for Girl Meets World. Rider Strong has released a statement discussing the series and potential involvement in the sequel at Disney Channel.
When we learned that Disney Channel was toying with the idea of developing a sequel series to the beloved 90s sitcom Boy Meets World, we were left to wonder if Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel would return to their characters Cory and Topanga. Though nothing is set in stone for the show itself, it sounds like Savage and Fishel are on board to return to their roles.
Disney is showing no signs of slowing its roll with its Boy Meets World spinoff, Girl Meets World. Interest in the spinoff of the successful nineties sitcom has grown over the last several days, and while there’s no word on whether Ben Savage or Danielle Fishel are officially signed on to the series, Cory and Topanga will very much be a part of the endeavor, and now we know a little more about the couple’s kids.
We haven't seen a lot of Ben Savage on the small screen in recent years, but the 32-year-old actor is still remembered well for his role as Cory Matthews, the lead character in ABC's 90s sitcom Boy Meets World. And there's a chance he could reprise that role, should things work out for the sequel Disney Channel is reportedly trying to develop.
Every now and then it's important to take a break from the intense competition of the TV news reporting world and take a step back to just enjoy a funny, television related video. It doesn't hurt that said funny video, by the geniuses over at Funny or Die, contains a few of TV's brightest young talents in a segment called 'Child Star Psychologist' starring Mad Men's Draper daughter Kiernan Shipka.
