Disney’s Boy Meets World spinoff Girl Meets World and the channel’s original movie Zapped starring starlet Zendaya Coleman are both slated to premiere in the US on Friday, June 27.

At 8pm, Zapped will precede Girl Meets World’s 9:45 pm debut on the Friday evening lineup.

However, in true Disney fashion, fans will get an early taste of both properties thanks to WATCH Disney Channel, which will feature Girl Meets World on May 21 and Zapped on June 23.

The former, which was first announced last year, hails from the mind of executive producer Michael Jacobs (Boy Meets World) and stars 11-year-old Rowan Blanchard (Spy Kids All the Time in World in 4D) as Riley Matthews, the daughter of original characters Cory and Topanga (Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage). The series is designed to come from a tween girl‘s perspective.

Zapped, meanwhile, is a dancing-themed adventure featuring the Shake It Up star based on the book Boys Are Dogs by Leslie Margolis. The movie follows 16-year-old Zoey Stevens, a skilled dancer who discovers a dog training app on her smartphone that somehow allows her to control all the boys around her.
