Allie Pennington, the daughter of two Knights-of-the-Round-Table scholars, begins classes at Avalon High where, new to the area, she slowly discovers herself involved in the prophecy of King Arthur’s reincarnation. Her being there is no accident. The Order of the Bear, an ancient secret society awaiting Arthur’s return, may be at hand, and Allie’s own parents, if not members of the Order, are at least Order wannabes. Allie becomes quickly linked to two classmates: Will, the school’s revered pretty-boy quarterback (whose girlfriend is having relations on the side with his best friend, and whose dark, brooding step-brother lurks about threateningly), is the most obvious Arthur candidate. Miles, the observant and witty school geek, suffers psychic flashes that always prove true and may be the reincarnation of Merlin. As the Arthur prophecy seems to indeed be unfolding before her, Allie finds herself in the protectorate role, guarding Will against the forces of Mordred who’re out to destroy Arthur at his every appearance down the centuries, whose destruction would plunge the world into another Dark Age.
I don’t really watch Disney channel movies anymore but I had to watch this movie because I’m a big fan of the book.
There are a LOT of changes in the plot but I think the Disney channel transformed the story into something that most people can enjoy. The film was a little boring to me at some parts, and the plot got forced at one point.
I think if you know about King Arthur legendary or you’ve read the book Avalon High (by Meg Cabot) than you can understand everything and enjoy it.
The acting wasn’t so bad. I think Brittany Robertson was great, she really carried the movie. She had great chemistry with Gregg Sulkin and the friendship between her and Miles (played by Joey Pollari) was very convincing.
For a Disney channel movie I think it was actually pretty good, perfect for a Netflix watch.
