On May 2 Entertainment Weekly posted the news that the highly anticipated series "Girl Meets World" has a full trailer and a premiere date in June. The series, which is a sequel to the popular 1990s sitcom "Boy Meets World," was picked up to series by the Disney Channel. A marathon of the original series is scheduled to air leading up to the premiere.
The trailer follows Cory and Topanga's daughter Riley Matthews (Rowan Blanchard) as she attends her first day of seventh grade in New York City. Rowan and her best friend Maya (Sabrina Carpenter) walk into their first class talking about how crazy the teacher is and then it turns out to be Cory. He is taking on a role much like Mr. Feeny had in the original series.
The one minute trailer shows Riley getting herself into crazy antics just like Cory did in middle school. She embarrasses herself in front of cute boys, hides from Cory, becomes a cheerleader, joins the school play and has heart to hearts with her parents about growing up. The trailer is in the same vein as the first series, with real life issues tackled with slight comedy and charm.
Last month The Hollywood Reporter posted new details about the series, including that several cast members from the first series would guest star in at least one episode. It has already been confirmed through set photos that Mr. Feeny visited the set, and Rider Strong who played Cory's best friend Shawn Hunter will visit the family in a holiday episode. Cory's parents will also appear in the episode and give some grandfatherly advice to Riley.
Stuart Minkus, played by actor Lee Norris, will make an appearance as well and the self proclaimed know it all might have a showdown with teacher Cory. The resident bad boy Harley from the original series will also be back in the new series: as the school janitor. There will probably be more guest stars in the twenty-two episode season.
The series will premiere on Friday, June 27 at 9:45 p.m. on Disney Channel. The series will continue into the fall and if it receives good viewership could be picked up for a second season. The show is catering to the nostalgia of its audience and tells a similar story except from the point of view of Cory's daughter.
