    FINALLY! I will mark my calendar :)

  2. “The uploader has not made this video available in your country”. of course.

    • maayanelson says:

      i had the same problem (from Israel) , just go to youtube and write “Girl Meets World – New Comedy Series ” and you can watch the trailer there

  3. Michael Grooms says:

    A little less than two months away…but I want it now!

  4. Eric says:

    IT’S ABOUT TIME! And that’s actually awesome, I was expecting it later in the year, like August/September.

  5. Ezzy says:

    I still say ABC FAMILY or ABC should be airing this

    • bsemerick says:

      Unfortunately nothing like TGIF exists anymore. I don’t think GMW could survive on network TV – channels are too focused now.

    • Correct me if I’m wrong, but wouldn’t there be more pressure for the show to earn a certain rating number if it was on a network like ABC, while if it airs on Disney Channel the rating can be much lower and still be considered a success? If I’m right then, yeah, less people will watch it on first-airing, but the better chance it has of being on the air for several seasons, no?

    I know I’m bummed! They need to make these things world wide. The world gets smaller every day and this show will be watched all over. Please make the trailer available to everyone!!

  9. Allen says:

    So glad it’s gonna be on Fridays, it’s TGIF again!

  10. Esaul says:

    Eh. The finger in the nose bit made me feel uncomfortable. Of course, this is Disney, not ABC or ABC Family. I don’t have HIGH expectations, I hope it’s at least done DECENT enough so it’s not insulting to Boy Meets World.

  11. I Heart Damon Salvatore says:

    Anybody who calls me while GMW is on is a dead person.

    Yes!!! Finally!

    Saw a trailer yesterday while watching DOD with the kiddos and got very excited, I got eye rolls so giant their heads rolled as well! So looking forward to June 27th!

  15. Sidney says:

    It looks like every other bad disney show. I miss the old disney channel. This won’t last.

  16. Amber says:

    Can’t wait! I love how Cory followed Mr. Feeny’s footsteps and became a teacher! Looks like it’s going to be a great show!:)

  17. Thea says:

    I’m excited. I’m guessing the Farkle kid is GMW’s Minkus. Serves Cory right to get a smarty pants of his own, it all comes full circle. ;)

  18. Lisa says:

    I hope this teaches and deals with kids everyday struggles. I wish there were more tv shows like this! Instead of ones that are magical and mystical-that’s not teaching anything!

  19. Tommy says:

    Can’t wait

  20. jen says:

    Minkus will guest star. Farkle is Minkus’s son.

  21. Joey Padron says:

    Happy the show finally have a premiere date, glad it’s on a Friday. Trailer looks good and funny. Excited to see first episode!

  22. Andrew says:

    I still say it needs to be on ABC Friday Nights!

  23. Bri says:

    I’m pretty sure the premiere of this show will blow Disney Channel’s ratings away. I’m mean name another show where adults have been chomping at the bit before it even premiered. If it will last will remain to be seen.

  24. So Topanga obviously did all the furniture shopping, and Riley seems to have spent a lot of time with Uncle Eric.

  25. Tracie says:

    Riley is just like a female Cory. I could see 6th-7th grade Cory using those exact gestures and saying those exact things.

  26. Crashingwaves says:

    Trailer doesn’t look too bad. I think I had my hopes up too high expecting this to be as awesome as boy meets world was. I suppose we’ll see how it goes in June. For the record, anyone else a little disappointed to not see Feeney as the teacher?? :(

  27. B & P says:

    We’re VERY excited seeing the trailer and can’t wait for the show to start! We will be avid watchers!!
    Love it!

  28. Seuss says:

    Just hope they don’t Disneyfy it too much. The trailer looks like they did. Otherwise … excited to see the old gang.

  29. Finally, i just get for i was waiting for, nice job. :)
