Posted Tuesday January 29, 2013 1:45 AM GMT

With production scheduled to begin next month, producer Michael Jacobs has cast Rowan Blanchard in the lead role on “Girl Meets World,” according to reports by Entertainment Weekly.

At 11-years-old, the young actress has appeared in the films “The Backup Plan” and “Spy Kids: All the Time in the World 4D.”

About his decision, Mr. Jacobs shared, “As soon as Rowan walked into the room, I was reminded of why Ben Savage was loved as Cory Matthews. 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.”

The highly-anticipated spinoff of the popular 1990’s series “Boy Meets World” will follow the adventures of characters Corey and Topanga’s daughter, Riley.
