Disney has officially cast Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga’s (Danielle Fishel) daughter for their Boy Meets World spin-off Girl Meets World.
11 year old Rowan Blanchard, whose previous credits include Spy Kids: All Around the World in 4D and The Back-up Plan, beat out many hopefuls for the coveted role. Michael Jacobs, who’s producing the pilot episode, said:
As soon as Rowan walked into the room, I was reminded of why Ben Savage was loved as Cory Matthews. Rowan is real and accessible and I am hopeful this girl is about to meet a world that will love growing up with her as well.
The pilot for Girl Meets World is slated to start production next month, and if it gets picked up to be a series you can expect the show to air on Disney Channel sometime in 2013 or 2014.
