World, meet Cory and Topanga's daughter Riley!
Rowan Blanchard, 11, has been cast in the title role of the upcoming Boy Meets World spin-off, Girl Meets World, confirms Entertainment Weekly.
The young actress, who has been featured in Spy Kids: All the Time in World and The Back-up Plan, was just chosen for the coveted part following a nationwide search, says Michael Jacobs, producer of the show's pilot.
"As soon as Rowan walked into the room, I was reminded of why Ben Savage was loved as Cory Matthews," Jacobs told the mag, praising the soon-to-be star. "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."
Slated for a 2013-2014 debut on the Disney Channel, Girl Meets World reunites small-screen lovebirds Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) and Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel) for a reboot of the beloved 90s sitcom Boy Meets World which focuses on their 13-year-old daughter, Riley.
