Sad news to report this evening. Teo Halm has tweeted that Disney has decided that having an older brother won’t work out. He will no long be playing Elliot on Girl Meets World. It looks like it is only going to be Rowan and August playing Cory and Topanga’s children.
So guys, Disney decided that it wouldn't work to have an older brother on the show; I won't be on Girl Meets World. Thank you to everyone❤️
