Since both Ben Savage (Cory) and Danielle Fishel (Topanga) were locked in as the parents, the anticipation escalated… And now we know! Petite, 11-year-old Rowan Blanchard will play Riley — Cory and Topanga's offspring.

The shooting for Girl Meets World will begin in February.

"As soon as Rowan walked into the room, I was reminded of why Ben Savage was loved as Cory Matthews," the show's producer, Michael Jacobs, told Entertainment Weekly. "Rowan is real and accessible, and I am hopeful this girl is about to meet a world that will love growing up with her as well."

We can't wait to see what the cast will do with the show and how it will turn out! What do you think of the casting choice?
