Anyone who remembers the TGIF block of family shows in the evenings remembers Boy Meets World — or on television in general since it’s syndicated. But you get my point. Disney has a spinoff in the works.
Entitled Girl Meets World, the show centers around Riley, the daughter of Cory and Topanga. And with Riley is her best friend Maya, who is best described as the female version of Shawn. Oh, and Riley has Elliot, her brother. And of course you need Cory and Topanga in the show — Cory will be more than a father, he will also be the history teacher at Riley’s school. A little ironic after the hijinks he put Mr. Feeny through.
It seems like they’re going to stick closely to the same formula of Boy Meets World, especially with the very similar character descriptions. But I find it odd that Cory is following the footsteps of Mr. Feeny. Topanga seemed more of a natural fit after her character progression. Although, Cory always felt sentimental towards Mr. Feeny, and there would be some influence there.
I’m more along the lines of rolling my eyes at the idea, but I’m curious on how it’ll turn out. And it piques my interest a little more with the talk that Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel might reprise their roles as Cory and Topanga.
