Michael Jacobs spoke to International Business Times at the ATX Festival red carpet.
He said the following about Anthony:
“Tony came back and nailed this thing,”
According to the creator, Mr. Turner will be a familiar face in a sea of new ones, and actually help introduce a new character. He’ll star alongside “Dinosaurs” voice actor Stuart Pankin, who will play a villainous principal who has a “severe misunderstanding with a new teacher.”
“Just like ‘Boy Meets World,’ we’re trying to spin out the world and the characters,” Michael Jacobs explained. “And then Tony comes in. I won’t tell you his position, but it’ll become very apparent and obvious what we needed to happen with Tony.”
“From his first line he is Mr. Turner, grown a little,” Jacobs continued of Quinn. “Such an authority and so wonderful that, how [Rowan Blanchard] responds to [Ben Savage] as teacher, Ben must respond to Tony as teacher.When you see that I think it illustrates this series. You go one jump Rowan to Ben, and then we ask you to jump again. It’s a lovely episode.” Mr. Turner will appear in “Girl Meets New Teacher,” which will air this September on Disney.
