While I was doing piles and piles of laundry this weekend, I may have gotten sucked into a couple of Wizards of Waverly Place/Sonny With a Chance/Good Luck Charlie Disney Channel Marathons. I realize I’m out of their main target demo, but each of those shows have charming, witty or moving moments in them! It is not my fault that I think Selena Gomez and Bridget Mendler are adorable teens ok?!
Anyway, it was DURING these marathons, that this trailer started playing:
Avalon High looks a little cheesy, but also the most awesome non-musical Disney Channel Original Movie in a while (ah, how I miss the days of Brink and the original Halloweentown).
It’s also based on a book by Meg Cabot, who is one of my favorite YA Authors.
And stars Britt Robertson, aka Lux from Life Unexpected (as Allie)
And Molly Quinn, from Castle (as Jen, who may or may not be the reincarnation of Guinevere)
AND Gregg Sulkin, from Wizards of Waverly Place (as Will, who may or may not be the reincarnation of Arthur)
From the trailer, and my memory of the book (which I read when it came out) it’s basically a modern retelling/incorporation of the King Arthur mythology, and how it relates to high school. But has a lot of action and fun flashbacks to the medieval time these kids are descendants from.
I guess this means I’ll be stalking out the Disney Channel again later this fall. If they decide to play the original Halloweentown too, then maybe more than once 🙂
