Here’s your daily update on The Most Important Pilot for Millennials of Our Time.
Ben Savage just Instagrammed the above photo along with the caption, “My First Class.” You guys! Cory Matthews is all grown up and teaching junior high! Nostalgia alert!
This is on the heels of a picture tweeted out by Rowan Blanchard yesterday that showed all-grown-up Eric and Shawn visiting the set of the pilot for Girl Meets World. While that photo was certainly a fun “Look At Them Now” pic, this picture reminds us of the one of the key details we actually know about the potential Disney Channel show: Cory’s job as a teacher at his daughter’s school. Will Cory be like Mr. Turner or Mr. Feeny? Twist: What if he takes after Eli Williams?
Below, the nostalgia picture to end all nostalgia pictures, courtesy of Maitland Ward‘s Instagram (Ward played Rachel in the later seasons of Boy Meets World): MR. FEENY (William Daniels) himself! READ FULL STORY »
Last night, Rowan Blanchard, who was cast to play Cory and Topanga’s pre-teen daughter, tweeted a photo from the set with Boy Meets World alums Rider Strong and Will Friedle, who played Sean and Eric respectively. “Rider Strong and Will Friedle visited us. OH MY GOSH!” wrote Rowan, who was pictured alongside co-star Sabrina Carpenter.
So does this mean Uncle Shawn and Uncle Eric will be joining the series if it gets picked up? When EW spoke Boy Meets World creator Michael Jacobs, who is exec producing Girl Meets World, early last month he certainly seemed open to the idea. “I think there’s more than a chance,” he said. “I think there’s a strong chance.” After seeing this photo, we’re that much more hopeful.

‘Boy Meets World’ reboot star Rowan Blanchard on playing Cory and Topanga’s daughter — EXCLUSIVE
‘Boy Meets World’ stars Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel on reuniting for ‘Girl Meets World’
‘Boy Meets World’ creator Michael Jacobs gives the scoop on his ‘Girl Meets World’ pilot
High-school-aged Topanga would certainly disapprove. Danielle Fishel, who played Topanga on Boy Meets World and will be reprising the role on the upcoming Girl Meets World Disney Channel reboot, has posed for Maxim.
While the pictures are pretty NSFW, the accompanying Q&A is fairly PG. She talks about the origin of the name Topanga: “Michael Jacobs says he was driving down the highway when production called and said, ‘We need a name for this character!’” she explained. “He happened to be driving past Topanga Canyon, so he said, ‘Topanga.’ He says that if they had called him two miles later, I would’ve been named Canoga, which is the next exit.” READ FULL STORY »
Six lessons 'Boy Meets World' taught us -- and we hope 'Girl Meets World' teaches the next generation of viewers
It was the show that taught ’90s babies right from wrong while simultaneously making all of us jealous that our teachers weren’t anything like Mr. Feeny. From Cory and Topanga’s lifelong love story to Shawn’s difficult childhood, Boy Meets World was packed full of sweet moments, quirky jokes and life lessons. And now, another generation could be defined by what the kid next door says, does and learns with the creation of Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World.
A mere 20 years after we first met Cory and Topanga, we’re introduced to their daughter, who is about to set out on her own journey. But before we get a glimpse into her life, we’re revisiting Cory’s journey, what it taught us in the 90′s and what we hope Girl Meets World will teach a new audience. READ FULL STORY »
Still reeling from the news that Disney has chosen 11-year-old Rowan Blanchard to play Riley Matthews on their upcoming Boy Meets World spin-off? Well, prepare for your mind to be blown a second time — because we just found out that little Rowan likes to sing. And she’s good.
The budding actress already has her very own YouTube channel, where she’s posted a handful of covers over the past year and a half or so. (She’s also got a Facebook fan page and a Twitter account that’s racked up nearly 4,000 tweets. The early bird catches the followers, right?) Rowan favors big, showy tunes that have been covered on Glee, including “Don’t Rain on My Parade”, the show’s “Anything Goes”/”Anything You Can Do” mashup, and Adele’s “Someone Like You,” her take on which I’ve embedded below. It’s a pretty impressive showing, though she doesn’t really reach for the rafters on “don’t forget me!” (To be fair, not even Adele always hits those notes live. Also, ROWAN IS A TINY CHILD.)
The Internet freaked out last fall when it was announced that TGIF favorite Boy Meets World was getting a spinoff, Girl Meets World. But apparently that was only the beginning for ‘90s-loving nostalgia fans.
In an interview with TMZ, Saved by the Bell‘s Mark-Paul Gosselaar, a.k.a Zach Morris, a.k.a your boyfriend in 1992 said, “We’ll see how [Girl Meets World does], maybe we’ll do a reunion as well.” Now, to be fair, this was a total off-the-cuff remark with absolutely no network promise behind it. But this is the Internet! We can dream! Long live The Max! READ FULL STORY »
There’s nothing new under the sun — which is just the way Millennials like it.
We’re a generation obsessed with our own recent past, as befits the children of Boomers. Our influence on the entertainment industry is also increasing as we grow older. That’s probably why 2012 was the year that a collective nostalgia for pop culture from the ’90s and even the early ’00s hit in full force. Sure, the year also featured its share of projects inspired by/cribbing from the ’80s or even earlier — we learned it by watching you, Generation X! — but generally speaking, a yearning for the days of Boy Meets World, Titanic, and the Spice Girls has supplanted a yearning for the days of Growing Pains, Journey, and The Breakfast Club.
Here’s a month-by-month rundown of 2012′s most nostalgia-driven moments, from announcements of sequels and reboots to random late night comedy bits. (Tom Hanks recited a slam poem about what?) Though it’s pretty ’90s heavy, even non-Millennials should find something here they get a kick out of — or something that makes them righteously furious. (For many nostalgia hounds, the two go hand in hand.)
The people have spoken — and they really, really can’t wait for Girl Meets World. In the month of November, stories about GMW — the as yet un-greenlit Disney Channel sequel-slash-spinoff of Boy Meets World — accounted for a staggering half a million pageviews on EW.com, indicating that you guys take your nostalgia pretty darn seriously.
And while we’re all for reveling in the return of Cory, Topanga, and (fingers crossed) more of the Philadelphia crew, your enormous interest in Girl Meets World got us thinking about which other beloved ’80s and ’90s sitcoms might be ripe for a reboot. And we want to know which comedies you’d put on the list.
