Reboots, remakes and spinoffs are everywhere! And no one knows that better than the cast of ‘Girl Meets World.’ Ahead of the ‘Full House’ spinoff, some of the GMW cast revealed EXCLUSIVELY to us what advice they have for those involved in remaking an iconic series.
The cast of Girl Meets World has one sound piece of advice for anyone trying to recapture the magic of a classic show: get ready for some serious haters. HollywoodLife.com caught up EXCLUSIVELY with the cast at the season two junket, and we asked them what words of wisdom they’d give to those on board for Fuller House. Check out what Rowan Blanchard, Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel had to say!
‘Girl Meets World': Advice To ‘Fuller House’ Cast
However, that doesn’t stop anyone from trying. Case in point: Girl Meets World, the Disney channel spinoff of the hit 90s series Boy Meets World. Now a hit, the cast revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY how they’d advise the cast of Fuller House, prior to the series’ start.
“You are going to get a lot of hate, there will be people who are really going to want to hate it,” Rowan said. “I noticed that really quick because when I got into this I was really excited but there were a lot of people who just wanted to throw as much hate as possible and they did it to me, they did it to Ben and Danielle.”
‘It’s A Fine Balance’
Ben also had some thoughts on the matter, though his advice was definitely less bleak. “I don’t know if I am in a position to give advice but personally what I have done is dived in and jumped in and I would embrace the experience and have a ball and really enjoy it,” he said.
Danielle also had a positive outlook. “The thing I would say is that there is a fine balance between trying to recreate what you already did and not wanting to sacrifice what you learned that worked before,” she said. “So you have a balancing act of doing something that worked before but also adjusting to the times and the new audience. That is what our cast has done very well.”
Do you think making a spinoff of a classic show is a good idea?
