As the premiere of the Disney Channel's Girl Meets World nears at the end of June, the network has devised a series of advertisements that appear to bridge the gap between old and new audiences.

Girl Meets World Aims to Match Wit of Boy Meets World?

Girl Meets World is a spin-off from the ABC 1990s classic ABC Boy Meets World.

The characters of Corey Matthews (Ben Savage) and Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel) grew up onscreen, becoming friends as kids only to date in high school and college and eventually marrying during the course of the program. This new series will be picking up a decade later, with Corey and Topanga navigating the challenges of parenthood with a daughter who is trying to form her own identity.

Is Maya Fox a Young Shawn Hunter on Girl Meet's World?

In what looks like an attempt to draw in current Disney Channel viewers along with older generations who grew up watching the 1990s sitcom, Disney has begun releasing ads that blend footage from the original with scenes from the upcoming series.

These sneak peaks function to get everybody who might not be familiar with story of Corey and Topanga up to date, while at the same time generating new interest and igniting old nostalgia.

Girl Meets World is set to introduce new characters, include the Matthews children and their friends. The program also intends to slip in a few cameos from Boy Meets World regulars Rider Strong as Corey's best friend Shawn Hunter and William Daniels as Mr. Feeney, Corey and friends' beloved school teacher.

Girl Meets World premieres June 27 on the Disney Channel.
