Cory and Topanga Sign On For Girls Meets World

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?

    I wonder if that Perv feeney will still be following him around…seriously, who goes from elementary teacher, to high school principal, to professor – AND is the guys neighbour? Cough *stalker* cough.

    I feel that you also need to get the ensemble cast onboard as well, not just Cory and Topanga. Cory’s family was a HUGE part of Boy Meets World, you can’t just take them away from the story. I think at the very minimum, we need Shawn and Eric as well, to be at least cameo characters.

    I loved these characters! I’ll watch if they’re the only ones in the show.
