Disney has released a new Girl Meets World trailer and finally announced a premiere date for the new TV series.  Picking up with Boy Meets World’s Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) years after their college days, Girl Meets World focuses on the adorable couple’s daughter Riley Matthews (Rowan Blanchard) as she begins seventh grade.  This full trailer offers an extended look at the show, but those hoping for a Cory & Topanga centric follow-up will be disappointed, as the protagonist of Girl Meets World is indeed Riley.  The tone is very much in line with Disney Channel’s other current original series, but there are glimpses of the trademark heart that permeated throughout Boy Meets World.  For big fans of BMW like myself, the opportunity to check back in with Cory, Topanga, and hopefully a few other Boy Meets World regulars is enough of a reason to check out the new series.

Hit the jump to watch the new Girl Meets World trailer.  The series officially premieres on Disney Channel Friday, June 27th, but the first episode will be available as a free download on iTunes starting June 13th.  Moreover, Disney Channel will air a Boy Meets World marathon on June 15th.

Though a new iteration of Space Jam featuring Lebron James turned out to be a silly rumor (probably for the best), the “classic” 1996 film has been resurrected in live-read form.  A reading of the screenplay recently took place, and the folks at Funny or Die were there to record the entire event.  The eclectic group of participants ranged from comedians like Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, and Ben Schwartz to voice talents like Seth Green and Ralph Garman, and even Boy Meets World’s Danielle Fishel was thrown in for good measure.  Of course someone had to fill Michael Jordan’s shoes, and who better than Los Angeles Clippers star (and University of Oklahoma alum—Boomer Sooner) Blake Griffin?  Additionally, teammate DeAndre Jordan also participated, debuting a mean Charles Barkley impression.

Cory and Topanga Are Parents in First GIRL MEETS WORLD Trailer

The Disney Channel has released the first Girl Meets World trailer.  The show is a spinoff of the excellent sitcom Boy Meets World, which aired from 1993 to 2000 on ABC and followed the coming-of-age of Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) from sixth grade to college.  In this new series, Cory and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) are parents, and the focus turns to their young daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard).  As a big fan of BMW, I’m genuinely looking forward to seeing how Girl Meets World stacks up.  Series creator Michael Jacobs returns to executive produce this new show, which is promising, and I’m hopeful he can inject the same mixture of sweetness and offbeat humor that made Boy Meets World a joy to watch.

Hit the jump to check out the first Girl Meets World trailer.  The series also stars Sabrina Carpenter and will feature appearances by other original Boy Meets World castmembers, including William Daniels (Mr. Feeny), Corey Fogelmanis (Minkus), and Rider Strong (Shawn).  Girl Meets World premieres on Disney Channel this summer.

TOP 5: STAR WARS, 2013 Oscar Previews, GIRL MEETS WORLD, Sundance 2013, STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS

You may have noticed a lack of Top 5 around these parts last weekend. Given the holiday weekend with friends and family, a slow news week in general, and my own recovery from Black Friday shopping at a local Wal-Mart (Note to past self: the kid next to you in line is going to unexpectedly throw-up so…just be prepared for that), it seemed like the logical time to take a week off. In spite of the holiday, though, a few cool things did happen the week before last so you’ll have to excuse the fact that some of this week’s items date back to two weeks ago.

Disclaimer aside, this week’s return includes Allison’s Confessions of a Star Wars Virgin series and more Star Wars news, Adam’s 2013 Oscar Previews, Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel returning for the Boy Meets World sequel series, Girl Meets World, the first programming announcement and an abundance of first images from Sundance 2013, and the synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness finally sees the light of day. Find a brief recap and link to each after the jump.

Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel Set for Disney Channel Sequel Series GIRL MEETS WORLD [Updated]

Holy hell, it’s really happening.  ABC’s 1990s sitcom Boy Meets World has long been a fan-favorite series, and the show’s popularity hasn’t seemed to wane much in the last 12 years it’s been off the air.  As such, the news that Disney Channel was developing a sequel series titled Girl Meets World was met with much enthusiasm.  The potential series would focus on the 13-year-old daughter of soul mates Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel), Riley, but much it was unclear whether Savage and Fishel would be willing to return to the characters.  Fans can rest easy now, though, as word comes that the actors are set to reprise their roles in Girl Meets World.  Hit the jump for more.

[Update: Fishel posted a letter to fans about the upcoming series. Check it out after the jump.]

BOY MEETS WORLD Seasons 1-3 DVD Review

If you’re reading this, there is a great chance that, by now, you’ve figured out the world isn’t perfect.  Indeed, life is full of injustices as we all too often find the planet we inhabit serving as a playground on which no good deed goes unpunished – or in this case, no good show goes un-cancelled and/or un-released on DVD.  Enter Boy Meets World.  If you spent any amount of time watching network television on Friday nights from 1993-2000, you may remember ABC’s comedy-drama series about a boy (Cory Matthews, played by actor Ben Savage) becoming acquainted with the harsh realities outlined above.  For seven indelible seasons, Boy Meets World documented the ebb and flow of the grocer’s son and his immediate gang (which namely included Danielle Fishel as Cory’s soul-mate Topanga, Rider Strong as his best friend Shawn, Will Friedle as his brother Eric, and William Daniels as the near omnipresent Mr. Feeny) as they laughed, cried, learned, and inevitably faded into a Philadelphia backdrop.  More after the jump:
