Storyline

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 ... Written by statmanjeff

Goofs

Brittany is constantly jogging throughout the film, and doing long distance runs to train for track. However, she runs the 400m, a sprint, and therefore should be encompassing far more sprinting and speed work than distance training. See more »

Quotes

Miles: I don't know how things were at your last school, but around here you can't get any higher than an A, so you can stop trying so hard.
Allie Pennington: It's called being nice, Miles. You should try it instead of hiding your insecurities behind your snark.

Unexpected Surprise
5 June 2018 | by nowegoSee all my reviews

I stumbled on this one after reading Britt Robertson's biography. Britt plays the lead role of Allie Pennington.

Being a television movie and a Disney Channel one at that, I didn't expect much, but what a surprise.

Very well acted, funny, lots of action especially near the end, a bit of romance and general all round good fun. I really liked Allie Pennington's parents played by Don Lake and Ingrid Park, they did a very good job and made me smile each time they were on screen.

A great movie that all ages could watch, no over the top violence to speak of and the sword fighting is quite well done.

I haven't read the book that this is based on so can't say whether it is true to the book or not, but based on some of the reviews by reviewers who have it doesn't do the book justice. I can not comment on that, I liked the movie for itself. It stands on its own. Well done Disney Channel.

Highly recommended and I would very likely watch this again, it is a feel good movie.
