Word & Film: What was the impetus to revisit “Boy Meets World?” Why now?

Michael Jacobs: Disney called and asked for a new “Boy Meets World,” which I would never do. They appreciated that, and asked if there was anything I’d do involving the show. So I thought about it, because they were very passionate about wanting to do it. I took a look around at what was on television, and I saw that there wasn’t anything on that resembled that sort of storytelling. Fourteen years had passed since the end of “Boy.” Cory and Topanga were married. They had moved to New York. There’s a show there from the point of view of their children. Cory and Topanga would be young parents. Ben would be as confused a parent as he was a kid, balanced by Topanga’s great strength. And then I thought about the kids. I thought it would be more interesting, perhaps, if they had a daughter. Like you.

W&F: Yeah, Ben told me he only wanted to do the show if the relationship was like you and me.

MJ: Yes, I’ve kept that in mind.

W&F: Well, certainly that’ll make it a better show.

MJ: Yeah, thanks. The last element that made it click for me was that it’s a rougher world, and everything that’s happened in the last two decades would come into play. We get to see the original characters deal with the current world.

W&F: How do the original characters, in their later iterations, compare to who you thought they’d be when the show started twenty years ago?

Ben Savage: Cory is still the same sweet, neurotic, guy he’s always been. He still wants things organized. He’s still resistant to any and all change. And he still likes cake. The difference now is that Cory is a father to two children, whom he absolutely adores.

One of the best quotes was where Michael Jacobs said this:

You cannot, as an audience, compare the pilot, or the first couple of episodes, to an entire television series. It’s an unfair comparison that won’t benefit anybody. The show gets better, and will continue to get better, as the new characters grow and evolve. And just like you fell in love with Cory, Topanga, and Shawn, I think you’ll fall in love with the new characters, too.
