11-year-old Rowan Blanchard will play the role of Cory and Topanga's daughter Riley Matthews on the Disney Channel's Boy Meet's World spin-off, Girl Meets World, according to Entertainment Weekly. The adorable actress, who has credits in films like The Back-Up Plan and Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World in 4D, was selected after a nationwide casting search.
"As soon as Rowan walked into the room, I was reminded why Ben Savage was loved as Cory Matthews," the show's producer, Michael Jacobs, says. "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 episode for Girl Meets World is set to begin shooting in Februrary. If Disney picks up the show (which, come on... it will), we should hopefully see it start airing next fall!
