Well, this project just went from “questionable” to “totally awesome” in a hurry. I reported a few weeks back that Disney was looking to start up a “Girl Meets World” show that would follow the adventures of the daughter of Cory and Topanga from the original show.
The idea was obviously dependent on the two actors, Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, returning to reprise their roles. But according to TVLine, that’s just what’s happened. Cory and Topanga were approached and are on board. The show moves forward.
The show is in early stages of development, but this news will likely help it along. Creator and EP of the original show, Michael Jacobs, is on board, and a nationwide casting hunt for the daughter, Riley, is in effect. I predict whoever is chosen will be the next Disney goddess like Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez before them.
Do you think this is a good idea now that the original duo are onboard? Why or why not?
