Girl Meets World began filming the pilot episode this week and the event brought out a lot of familiar faces! The core team, including Cory and Topanga themselves (Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage), Shawn and Eric (Rider Strong and Will Friedle), and even Rachel and Mr. Feeny himself!!
William Daniels has been confirmed as rejoining the Girl Meets World team and we could not be more excited!! We can hear the Feeny calls from here! Rider Strong has not officially confirmed that he will be a cast member on the much anticipated reboot, but his presence on set is a good omen.
Not to mention the resurgence of Rachel, everybody’s favorite red head. Maitland Ward is also unconfirmed as an official cast member, but her presence has us wondering where her character would be today. She left the series on the arm of Shawn’s half brother Jack (Matthew Lawrence), but since he wasn’t present on set perhaps the pair did not make it through the years? We hope that’s not true, but if it is could it be that Rachel and Eric finally got it together? We’ll have to wait and see!
Also on set were the new kiddos playing the children of our favorite television characters. Rowan Blanchard is pictured getting to know the alumni as well as enjoying her time as the new star of the show, playing Riley Matthews daughter of Topanga and Cory. Sabrina Carpenter is set to play Riley’s best friend Maya Fox, the Shawn Hunter 2013 equivalent. Many have speculated that her character could be the estranged daughter of our favorite bad boy with a heart. Hunter, Fox? Makes sense right?
Every single member of the cast seems thrilled to be reunited, tweeting and instagramming tons of pictures of their time together. We can’t blame them, we’re pretty excited too! Can’t wait to watch Girl Meets World this fall on Disney Channel.
