Earlier this month, the Disney Channel released an exciting first look at its much-anticipated “Boy Meets World” spin-off, “Girl Meets World”…and then promptly killed our buzz with news that the series would not premiere until June 27. ALMOST TWO MONTHS AWAY. Apparently, however, our collective groans were heard, and the network made the brilliant decision to release the pilot episode early via their Watch Disney app. You feel that? That’s your day getting wayyyyy better.
After legions of devoted fans devoured the sneak on their smartphones, they quickly flocked to social media to share their rave reviews. “Just saw the pilot of Girl Meets World over breakfast—it was amazing!!!” teen actress Cozi Zuehlsdorff tweeted, while others said the episode almost brought them to happy tears.

“GMW” matriarch Danielle Fishel took to Twitter, as well, to let enthusiasts know there’s lots more in store. “Beyond thrilled that so many of you who saw the #GMW pilot loved it but I can’t wait for you wait to see next 20. #itjustgetsbetterandbetter,” she said. And with guest appearances from most of the “Boy Meets World” cast, we’d say that’s a guarantee!
Check out a scene from the newly released pilot, and be sure to watch “Boy Meets World” reruns from 12p/11c-2p/1c on MTV2!
