Another alumni of the original Disney series is about to be reunited with Corey and Topanga.
‘Boy Meets World’ fans are in for another treat on ‘Girl Meets World,’ as Matthew Lawrence is set to reprise his role as Jack Hunter in an upcoming episode.
‘Girl Meets Word’ follows Corey and Topanga’s daughter.
The last time fans saw Jack it was 15 years ago and he had left to join the Peace Corps. But it’s time to find out what he’s been up to all these years, and more importently if his six percent body fat is still in tact.
“Jack and Eric come to the girls’ middle school semi-formal through a very believable circumstance, and that’s where Jack Hunter meets Riley Matthews,” creator Michael Jacobs told MTV News.
“He doesn’t know that she’s Cory’s daughter, but his realization that this can happen in life, that Cory and Topanga can have a creature such as this, changes him. It’s a lovely episode.”
Ben Savage who plays Cory Matthews on the series, gave a little more info on Jack’s status revealing that he’s now 'a powerful business man'. “He’s back in a different carnation than we last saw him,” Savage said.
“I love having everyone back on set, including Matt. It’s kind of like having all of my old brothers back on set. It’s a really meaningful thing for me,” the actor added.
The first season of ‘Girl Meets World’ saw a number of ‘Boy Meets World’ alumni returning, including Eric, Shawn and Mr Feeny. But creator Michael Jacobs has assured fans there are plenty more surprises to come.
“We decided in the writers’ room that the theme of the first season was going to be friendship. Let’s first establish the friendship between Riley and Maya, let’s get to know them and their choices for who their friends are. And if the audience can embrace that, and then the choices, we can open up this world,” Jacobs told MTV.
“Riley and Maya, who the audience has now embraced, are the audience surrogates to meet what happened to the characters on ’Boy Meets World.’ Their reactions to them, and what their lives are like, are doubly interesting for the audience because they already like the girls and now they’re seeing not only their own reactions to the old core cast, but the girls’ reactions as well.”
“I will bring in the bulk of the ’Boy Meets World’ cast,” he added. “But then I will incorporate that cast into the lives of these girls.” ‘Girl Meets World’ airs Fridays on the Disney Channel.
