‘Girl Meets World’ Set Photos: Cory, Topanga, Mr. Feeny, & More!

2 years ago by  

Children of the 90s have been abuzz with excitement for a few months ever since it was announced that Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel would be reuniting as Cory and Topanga for Girl Meets World, a spin-off of the ABC comedy series Boy Meets World, this time focusing on the next generation of the Matthews family.

The series follows the trials and tribulations of Cory (now a teacher like Mr. Feeny) and Topanga, catching up with them in real-time after the end of Boy Meets World, as they are now married with two kids of their own

Rowan Blanchard is playing the lead, Riley Matthews, described as “an adorable girl on the cusp of whatever comes next in life, and wanting to rush into it head first. She is fiercely loyal to her friends, and spends most of her time juggling the obstacles that life throws her way.” Meanwhile, Sabrina Carpenter is playing Maya (Riley’s Shawn Hunter-esque best friend), who isn’t one of the best students in school, but she looks to Cory as a role model, having never met her real father.

In addition, Teo Halm was recently cast as Cory and Topanga’s son and Riley’s big brother Elliot. Not unlike Eric Matthews, the character “will start the series as a ‘thinking man’s jock.’” He’s also “good looking, well built, funny and insightful in his observations. Good hearted except for his dedication toward using Riley (Blanchard) as his wrestling practice dummy. His parents worry that he has inherited the ‘Eric Matthews Algernon’ gene and will lose intelligence as time goes by.” Yeah, that sounds familiar, and is a great reference to the character arc that Will Friedle had as Cory’s brother in Boy Meets World.

Over the past couple days, production has commenced on the pilot for the hopeful new series that will air on The Disney Channel, should it get picked up by the House of Mouse. And while we don’t have any official photos from the series, cast members, both new and old, posted pictures to Instagram and Twitter for everyone to enjoy.

Check them out below (click to enlarge):

About a month ago, series creator Michael Jacobs said that any old cast members form Boy Meets World had an open invitation to reprise their roles in this new spin-off. While the pictures in the gallery would indicate that many accepted the offer, some quick observations just might throw that thought to the wind.

Various photos appeared through the Instagram profiles of Maitland Ward (who played Rachel in the later season), Cory Matthews himself, Ben Savage, and young series leads Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carpenter. Plus, Danielle Fishel tweeted that adorable picture of Cory and Topanga’s embraced hands, complete with wedding rings.

If you’ve taken a gander at the photos, you’ll see the likes of William Daniels (Mr. Feeny), Will Friedle (Eric Matthews), Rider Strong (Shawn Hunter) and of course, Maitland Ward herself. However, none of these cast members have been confirmed to return. In addition, a tweet from Blanchard accompanying the photo with Friedle and Strong said, “Rider Strong and Will Friedle visited us. OH MY GOSH!” Which means they weren’t there to film.

Since many of the cast members have moved on to different things in their career, it wouldn’t be a surprise if some of them don’t come back. Friedle struggles with agoraphobia and has taken to doing voicework for cartoons. Strong is a low key director, and Daniels has made various appearances on shows like Grey’s Anatomy. However, their appearance on set during filming does gives us hope that they’ll at least show up for a brief cameo appearance to appease the fans.

Either way, it’s cool to see the classroom set from Girl Meets World where Cory will be teaching, and there’s a crowded look at the Matthews’ household as well. We can’t wait to see more, so hopefully Disney Channel smartly picks up the pilot to series so we can see what this new coming-of-age tale is all about.

Girl Meets World is currently in production, so stay tuned for more news.

  1. Its kinda depressing…

    • rofl… I was going to say the same thing.

      It is like watching a horrible train-wreck happen in slow motion. You want to stop them before they make a mistake, but you know they are going to do it anyway.

    • Actors age faster off screen. When you don’t see it gradually as you would for an actor who’s aged in front of the camera, the difference is more jarring.

  2. Wait, Feeny is still alive? Holy crap.

    • Hahaha I thought the same thing!!

  3. how is this depressing? I think its awesome

  4. Probably not a show i’d get into tbh but if they ever have any guest appearances I’ll certainly check them out

  5. Shoot me. A horrible idea of a show and a bad article

    • Bam!

      • OUCH!



        • That was unexpected!

  6. I seriously hope this show is good…

  7. It is kinda depressing. What’s next? Clarrisa’s son explains it all?

    • Clarrison Explains It All. The marketing writes itself.

  8. Everyone looks really good, it can’t be this bad?

    • Good?! What pictures were you looking at? Topangas fat, coreys balding ,freeney is a ghost, eric looks gay, and shawn looks like he never even grew up, remember when he was taller than korey when the show started and then he stayed short and is forever short? And don’t get me started on the disney kids, dressed inappropriately destined to become trashy tabloid fodder. I hope this show never makes it to air and all the cast quits acting for good. Boy meets world never should have seen the light of day, I saw all 126 episodes and they all SUCKED!

      • You sat through 126 episodes of a show you didn’t like? I’m not judging, I’m just curious as to why anyone would do that to themselves.

        • Hahah that’s a good one Gomba Tip. Commentaterer, it’s called aging. It happens over the years (and really, none of them aged badly at all).

      • Can’t tell if the commentaterer is a troll, or just plain stupid and wrong…

      • i thought she looked damn good

  9. whats up with the trolls?all im saying is this isnt for us 90s bunch its for our next generation…you trolls dont have to watch but 9/10 your ace will be watching the first episode for sure. ill be watching because all 126 episodes were flawless.

  10. Don’t get me wrong. It was a nice show when it was on and while I didn’t watch it all the time, I did enjoy the show when I did watch it. But I don’t get why there is this huge hype over this “sequel” show. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me.

    • People always get excited about spin-offs. Until they see the finished product, and then they wish they could unsee it.

    • Right now it’s still only a pilot. There’s a lot of buzz around it, bc of the old cast coming back, and most of the bloggers on the internet are 90s kids. But it hasn’t gotten picked up yet. So people should calm down

  11. I’m really excited for this! :-D
