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.
Disney Channel's anticipated Boy Meets World followup Girl Meets World now has an official premiere date and an adorable trailer to go with it. The video gives us an introduction to the energetic Riley, who faces the awkwardness of having her father for a history teacher. And said father faces the distress of accepting that his daughter is growing up.
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.
However, if you’ve caught a few outlets noting that some of the characters from Full House are making their way back to television thanks to an updated series following a grown-up Stephanie and DJ, and you believed those outlets, you’ve fall for a bunch of baloney. And not the kind you slap between two pieces of bread.
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.
Veteran actress Jackee Harry has been part of plenty of sitcoms over the years. Anyone who grew up in the nineties or had kids who grew up in the nineties may remember her best from the sitcom, Sister, Sister, where she played a seamstress and mother. Now, Harry will be lending her acting talents to the Girl Meets World pilot, another kid-friendly project that is headed for the Disney Channel.
It seems particularly fitting that these photos should be posted together, as Mr. Feeny was Cory's teacher and life mentor, and now it sounds as though Cory has followed in his mentor's footsteps in becoming a teacher and guiding other boys (and girls) who are in the process of meeting the world.
In Boy Meets World, Cory had his older brother Eric. The lead character of Disney Channel's spin-off of the popular 90's comedy will also have an older brother, and the role has been cast. Newcomer Teo Halm has been tapped to play the part of Elliot, the son to Cory and Topanga Matthews.
The Girl Meets World pilot is shaping up nicely over at the Disney Channel. Most of the biggest roles have already been cast, but over the last few days, the network was still looking for a young lady to play lead tween Riley Matthews’ best friend, Maya Fox. On Thursday, the Disney Channel announced the role has been given to up-and-coming actress and singer Sabrina Carpenter.
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.
