Entertainment Weekly recently spoke to "Boy Meets World" creator Michael Jacobs, who will also serve as executive producer of the long-awaited Disney pilot GIRL MEETS WORLD. Jacobs revealed more details on what fans of the hit '90's TV series can expect in this latest incarnation.

"There's a natural reticence to want to try and attempt something that you've been really lucky enough to do once," explains Jacobs. However Jacobs decided that he wanted to create a show for the "new generation of kids that live in a much more difficult world," and center it on "the children of Cory and Topanga and watch on two levels [as they] grow up and as Cory and Topanga keep growing up, I can't resist that. I can't resist that and I'm very hopeful the audience won't resist it either."

Girl Meets World will focus on "the confusions about growing up and what we are supposed to be and what we are supposed to aspire to be. There's a column that I want to play in and that column contains The Wonder Years and Happy Days. That was always the column that I wanted Boy Meets World to be included in and I want Girl Meets World to be in that column as well."

Jacobs decided that Cory and Topenga should be the parents of two children. "Topanga has always been much more certain that Cory. Cory has always been confused. That would never stop. Now he's a father. Cory Matthews doesn't know how to be a father." He added, "He's following in the footsteps of [Mr. Feeney], the most influential character in his life," says Jacobs. "Should he be? Will he succeed? Can he influence children like Feeney influenced children? What is Topanga's observation of that? How does she help? And what is Topanga's life? And what has she become? You'll remember we left the series and they were in Philly and they were going on an adventure to go to New York. Did they succeed? Did it work? All of that will be answered in the pilot."

Jacobs revealed that Riley Matthews "is going to be much more like one than the other but that second parent will pop up in ridiculously unexpected times and places and add to the confusion of who this character is."

Jacobs hopes many of the original supporting characters like Shawn, Eric, and Minkus, will return. "I think there's more than a chance," says Jacobs, who explains that he's spoken to many of the former cast members and that they've all expressed interest in being apart of the project in some capacity. "I think there's a strong chance," he says.
