Girl Meets World trailer

Can it possibly be that long ago that we were kids watching Cory (Ben Savage) navigating adolescence on Boy Meets World? Apparently, it can. We’re really old, you guys. Disney Channel has just premiered the first Girl Meets World trailer, in which Cory and longtime love Topanga (Danielle Fishel) are the proud parents to a 12-year-old of their own (played by Rowan Blanchard).

The girl, Riley, even has a Shawn of her own in the form of mischievous Maya (Sabrina Carpenter). Watch the first teaser for the spinoff/sequel after the jump.
