Avalon High: A Teen in King Arthur’s Court

November 10, 2010

The newest Disney Channel movie, Avalon High, premieres THIS FRIDAY at 7 pm! Here’s the trailer:

Soooo it looks pretty different from Meg Cabot’s book…but we’ll have to wait until Friday to find out if those changes make the movie more exciting or just mess up the fun plot that Meg Cabot developed–I am already pretty concerned that Disney changed Ellie’s name to Allie. I know it seems like a minor thing to those of you who haven’t read the book, but names are kind of a big deal in this story. Anyway, I am super excited to see all the ridiculously fancy King Arthur costumes!

Meanwhile, back at the library…
