After the reports the past few months that Boy Meets World would be getting a 13 years later spin-off with Girl Meets World featuring the children of Corey (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) Matthews, mainly focusing on their daughter. Since the original show has a cult following (it’s amazing the variety of people and ages that absolutely love the show, including myself) it’s a no-brainer that they are looking to grasp hold of a new generation of TV viewers, and bring along the generation that loves the original show as well.
Now, the show has found its lead in Rowan Blanchard, whose biggest credit to date is Spy Kids 4, besides a small part in The Back-Up Plan with Jennifer Lopez. However, she has the Disney look, and in the universe of Boy Meets World, acting chops were never a huge requirement, especially in the later years, where goofy humor took over, despite a few serious episodes, like the drinking episode, which still had quite a few light moments in it.
The pilot starts filming soon, and I’m sure it will get picked up on name recognition (and the audience that comes with it) alone, but we’ll see soon enough. With the two main cast members returning (as well as a rumor that we’ll see ‘Uncle Shawn’ (Rider Strong) a few times at least), I’ll be watching if the show ever makes it to air.
