A couple of weeks ago, the spin-off of Boy Meets World, Girl Meets World, premiered the first trailer for one of the most anticipated new shows of the Summer. Fans of the 90s classic and current viewers alike, were excited when the first trailer for the series was released which showed us Cory and Topanga Matthews all grown-up and acting like parents when their daughter, Riley, and her best friend, Maya, attempt to sneak out of the house.
Yesterday afternoon, not only did Disney Channel release a new trailer for the show, they also revealed the premiere date and time. For those who have a verified account with Disney Channel’s online viewing system, “Watch Disney Channel,” they could watch the pilot episode of the series as early as May 21 while those who do not have it, will have to wait for the series premiere on Friday, June 27 at 9:45 p.m. following the premiere of a new Disney Channel original movie (DCOM).
Watch the trailer below and see how many similarities you can spot between Riley in GMW and Cory in BMW.
If you grew up in the 90s and were fortunate enough to witness ABC’s TGIF line-up then when you heard news that Boy Meets World would be getting a spin-off, you were wondering if the iconic show would be done justice.
The fact that Disney Channel would be the one to air the upcoming series and not ABC, was something that made hard-core fans against it with its recent history of crappy television programs.
Since the original announcement was made last year that Girl Meets World would in fact become a series, fans have started to change their opinion about the show with interviews, picture and all sort of media that have been released.The show, unlike the original, will focus on Cory and Topanga’s daughter, Riley and her life.
Today, the official first look at the show has been released which introduces us to Riley Matthews and the Shawn to her Cory, Maya. We also get the first look at Cory and Topanga exercising their parental duties for all of three seconds, but still it’s something we previously did not have.
Girl Meets World still does not have an official premiere date, but it’s already been confirmed that it will premiere this Summer, so keep an eye out.
