Her name is Rowan Blanchard, and people who have kids or like HORRIBLE movies may know her from Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D and The Back-up Plan, but soon, we will all know her as Riley, the daughter of Cory and Topanga in the upcoming Girl Meets World, which will see the return of Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel as her parents.
“As soon as Rowan walked into the room, I was reminded of why Ben Savage was loved as Cory Matthews,” says Boy Meets World creator Michael Jacobs. “Rowan is real and accessible and I am hopeful this girl is about to meet a world that will love growing up with her as well.”
The pilot will go into production next month, and should the show be greenlit to series (oh, it will), Girl Meets World is likely to debut on this fall’s Disney Channel line-up. Ben Savage, as you can see from the Tweet below, is pretty excited.
Better still, this can only mean that we are a year or two away from Saved by the Bell: The New NEW Class featuring the children of the original cast.
