Disney Channel’s ‘Girl Meets World’ Gets Premiere Date and a Full Trailer

By May 2, 2014

There’s no doubt that we’re interested in Disney Channel’s new original series “Girl Meets World” simply because of our nostalgia for the 90s predecessor “Boy Meets World,” which was lovingly given a poetry slam summary by Samuel L. Jackson on “The Tonight Show.”

And now, after a teaser trailer showed off the first footage from the series that sees Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel all grown up with kids as Cory and Topanga, a full trailer for the psuedo-sequel show has showed up, and it’s just as cheesy as we hoped/feared. Take a gander right here:

It’s got that 90s sitcom vibe, but pretty much all Disney Channel and Nickelodeon live-action shows have that laughtrack and exaggerated acting style down. Is there enough nostalgia left in children of the 90s to make this a success with an older crowd while simultaneously pleasing the youngsters who actually tune in to Disney Channel?

The trailer seems to indicate the same emotional core and family friendly wackiness that made the original so easy to love in our younger days, but we’re not sure if we’ll be able to endure this kind of series all over again. This writer is firmly against the use of laughtracks and the format of multi-camera sitcoms, but in this case, it’s part of the throwback nature of this series, so it’s not nearly as annoying.

Anyway, Disney Channel has set “Girl Meets World” for a series premiere this summer on Friday, June 27th at 9:45pm ET. There’s a chance we might have a review just to go full circle on all this flashback love we’re feeling for Cory and Topanga. Either way, we can’t wait until the later episodes when Cory’s parents stop by for a holiday visit.

Will you tune in to “Girl Meets World” on the Disney Channel?
