The Wait is Over: Girl Meets World Trailer Released

The moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here…the first official Girl Meets World trailer has arrived, and it’s certainly got our 90’s girl hearts reminiscing. The spin-off show will tell the story of Riley Matthews (Rowan Blanchard) and her life growing up under her parents’ roof in New York City. Those parents? None other than our beloved (and decidedly grown-up) Cory and Topanga Matthews, played by Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel.

From the 30-second clip of the show, it looks like Riley has a bit of adventurous streak, trying to sneak out the apartment window with her best friend and sidekick, Maya (Sabrina Carpenter). As the besties try to navigate middle school, annoying Riley will have the added task of dealing with her dad teaching at her school. Yup, think of adult Cory Matthews as the Mr. Turner of Girl Meets World, minus the motorcycle (we assume).

Speaking of best friends and sidekicks, expect a special appearance from Cory’s BFF, Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong), as well as the original Mr. and Mrs. Matthews in the holiday episode. As if your inner teenybopper weren’t already reeling from this trip down memory lane, one very special fan-favorite character will be making an appearance in the pilot episode; any guesses? That’s right, the beloved Mr. Feeny (William Daniels) is back, no doubt offering nuggets of wisdom to the next generation of Matthews kids and inspiring a new generation of viewers along with them.

An official airdate hasn’t been released yet, but Girl Meets World will air this summer on the Disney channel…is it too early to set our DVR?
