It's official: "Girl Meets World" has found its girl, and her name is Rowan Blanchard.

According to EW, the 11-year-old actress has been cast to play Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga's (Danielle Fishel) daughter, Riley, in the Disney Channel sequel to the cult '90s show.

“As soon as Rowan walked into the room, I was reminded of why Ben Savage was loved as Cory Matthews,” producer Michael Jacobs told EW. “Rowan is real and accessible and I am hopeful this girl is about to meet a world that will love growing up with her as well.”

Blanchard -- who has previously appeared in "Spy Kids: All the Time in the World" and "The Back-Up Plan" -- later tweeted the news.

The pilot is set to go into production next month, and would likely debut sometime during the 2013-2014 season if Disney execs like what they see.
