A casting call and search for the lead role in a new Disney show is underway!
Disney Channel is now casting the 2 leads for the TV pilot of a new show, the reboot of the classic “Boy Meets World” called “Girl Meets World“.
Casting directors are now holding auditions for teenagers to play the main parts and the casting breakdowns have gone out (see below).
The new Disney show is “Girl Meets World” and it picks up where “Boy” left off.
Disney Channel and their casting directors have begun a nationwide casting search to find the perfect teen girl who will play the part of Riley Matthews, the “Girl” in “Girl Meets World”.
“Girl Meets World” is the next generation of the hugely popular ABC show “Boy Meets World”. “Boy” was a coming of age story that had a little bit of everything… comedy, teen awkwardness, high school friendships, drama and fun.
“Boy Meets World” was a sitcom about the lives of teens, Cory and Topanga. The new Disney show is about Cory and Topanga’s daughter, Riley. The part of Riley has yet to be cast and auditions are going on now to see who will play this great part. Besides the role of Riley, The role of Maya is also available (see casting breakdown below).
Maya is Riley’s best friend in the show and both girls are 13 years old as the series begins.
Riley Mathews is the new star of “World”, like the 90’s show, she too is in her early teens and entering a new chapter of her life. “Boy” was told from Cory’s point of view, “Girl” will be told from Riley’s.
Boy meets World began in 1993 and ran until 2000. The new show brings back some of the old cast but now it is 20 years later. Cory and Topanga are no longer kids or teens. In the new show they actually play the parents and the show now revolves around the life of their daughter, Riley. Cory and Topanga where a favorite teen couple of the 90’s and now, in the new show they are married with a teen of their own. In the new series, Cory is a teacher and his daughter Riley has a best friend named Maya with whom she spends most of her time.
“Girl Meets World” brings back Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, Cory and Topanga. The show “Boy Meets World” had been a huge success and the show filmed countless episodes over 7 years. Danielle and Ben grew up on the show over its long run-time and both stars have commented on how excited they are to do it again.
Danielle Fishel showed her excitement on Ryan Seacrest’s show where she commented
“I think everyone is a little nostalgic for that family-friendly innocent fun again!”
Disney’s “Girl Meets World” will be produced by Michael Jacobs. Jacobs was the producer of the 90’s hit “Boy Meets World” as well as other 90’s classics like “Charles in Charge” and “My Two Dads.”
“Girl Meets World” is still in the very early stages of the show with only a pilot planned so far. Auditions are taking place in 2013 to find the new kids to star in the show as the “old kids” now get cast as the adults.
The new Disney show is hoping to get casting wrapped up early next year and then begin production of the TV pilot and any other episodes that the network orders.
No word yet as to if any other old cast members will revive their previous roles in the new show. Whether we see the old cast members return as adults is unknown but most certainly many of them will be seen in episodes as guest stars.
The cast of “Boy Meets World”
Here is the casting breakdown that Disney sent out for the roles they are holding tryouts for:
[RILEY MATTHEWS] Please submit all ethnicities. 13 years old, indelible personality, an adorable girl on the cusp of whatever comes next in life, and wanting to rush into it head first. She is fiercely loyal to her friends, and spends most of her time juggling the obstacles that life throws her way, some of those being her father who is also her seventh grade history teacher, her mother who is Topanga, and her brother, Elliot, who is one grade older in school and in life experience and makes sure to always let her know it. But there is no obstacle in this girl’s world that can dampen her bright spirit and eternal optimism. Series Lead.
[MAYA] Please submit all ethnicities. 13 years old. Maya is Riley’s best friend and does not share Riley’s optimism. She is far darker and less trusting of the world. She is an only child and has never known her father, which immediately makes her relationship with both Riley and Cory Matthews very important to her although she’d never admit it. She is not a good student in school, but is a wonderful student of life and absolutely magnetic in attracting or intimidating the people in her sphere as she cares to. Dark and edgy, but just as fiercely loyal to Riley as Riley is to her. Which makes us want to believe that maybe there’s a good heart under the acerbic wit. Or maybe not. Series Regular
Disney Channel is hoping to introduce a whole new generation to Cory, Topanga and family and the upcoming auditions will surely make some teenage actor’s dream of being the lead in a Disney hit show, come true.
If you truly want to feel nostalgic, watch the original pilot episode for “Boy Meets World”
Casting is going on now for the main roles and series guest stars and extras will be cast as production gets closer. Right now it looks like the show will be going into production in early 2013 and may be released later that year.
So who do you think should be cast as Riley Mathews and Maya in Disney’s “Girl Meets World”?

Hi Disney Channel producers,directors, and casting directors!! I’m Olivia and I am 13 years old! This seems like a wonderful opportunity to be apart of what seems to be yet another, Disney Channel hit show! I do have acting experience. I go to acting classes every week at a place called Stage Right. I also do musical theater at a place called Apple Hill Playhouse during the summer. I have done kid friendly musicals such as Alice in Wonderland, The Enchanted Sleeping Beauty, etc. I have done many different roles(one time I played 3 roles in one musical)! My acting teacher tells me I have a big personality, which is a good quality to have as an actress. Sadly, I don’t have an agent. But hey, neither did Selena Gomez when she was on Barney. Her mom took her to that audition. & look where she is today!I have watched re-runs of Boy Meets World. Aside from acting, I also LOVE to sing. I’m in my schools chorus group and I have sung numerous solos at church. I am 5 foot 1 and I weigh 105 pounds. I have dark hair, dark eyes, and light skin. I would love to be able to get a shot at this. Every movie star, pop star, and Disney Channel star has to get their start somewhere, am I right? If you are interested in giving me a shot, feel free to email me. Thank you!!
Oops! Forgot to mention that I am Irish, German, English, etc. You could say I’m a little bit of everything. 🙂
