On yesterday morning's broadcast, Good Morning America welcomed the cast of the 1990s hit series BOY MEETS WORLD for a full reunion! In the interview below, Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel, and the rest of the cast discuss the past series - as welll as Disney's upcoming spinoff, GIRL MEETS WORLD.

In an interview with EW in February, BOY creator Michael Jacobs offered up the first details as to what audiences can expect in the GIRL pilot: "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."

GIRL MEETS WORLD will follow Riley, the teenage daughter of Cory and Topanga, picking up over a decade after the show concluded its run on ABC in 2000.
