'Boy Meets World' enthusiasts have been ecstatic about the return of Cory and Topanga ever since the news of the sequel first broke. Those behind the cameras have been busy planning the highly anticipated spin-off. Previous reports revealed that Rowan Blanchard had been chosen to play Cory and Topanga's daughter Riley. However, that was only the beginning of the casting. According to a Yahoo TV Line article dated Tuesday, August 20, Riley's first crush and little brother have now joined the cast.
Peyton Meyer will star as Tristan Friar (the object of Riley's affection). Tristan is the dreamy eye-catching kind that will likely also be the crush of middle school girls off the screen as well. Will Tristan and Riley be another Cory and Topanga?
Also, added to young Riley's world is little brother August Maturo who will star as Louis. Louis is the youngest child of Cory and Topanga (Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel who are returning to their 'Boy Meets World' roles as adults).
Neither Meyer or Maturo are strangers to the acting world. Meyer can be spotted guest-starring on the upcoming season of 'Dog With a Blog,' while Maturo has appeared on 'How I Met Your Mother' and 'Weeds.'
In case you're just getting in on the sequel news, the Disney show will feature 7th-grader Riley, as she goes through her middle school journey. Her Dad Cory who was once the young student on BMW, is now a faculty member. My, how time flies!
'Girl Meets World' is expected to be available for our viewing pleasure in 2014.
