Avalon High Currently Shooting in New Zealand with Director, Stuart Gillard

In Avalon High Allie is ecstatic when her parents, traveling professors who specialize in King Arthur's legend, tell her she will be staying at Avalon High until she graduates. She can finally join the track team, make new friends and be a normal high school student. But shortly after arriving, Allie discovers that something strange may be afoot. While researching a term paper on King Arthur's legacy, she begins to notice some interesting parallels between the past and the present – from handsome quarterback Will, his cheerleader girlfriend, Jen, and their best friend, Lance, to Will's brooding step-brother, Marco, a quirky kid named Miles and football players who act like knights of the roundtable. The deeper Allie searches, the more convinced she is that her school is a contemporary Camelot, and it's up to her to solve of the mystery of Avalon High before notorious traitor Mordred wins again.
In the role of Sean, Anthony Ingruber portrays a football player whose identity plays in to the modern day Camelot tale. This is the actor’s first significant supporting role in a movie and he is excited to be part of such a talented and dynamic cast. “It is clear from the caliber of cast and crew they have assembled, that Disney is aiming to make something very special, and I’m honored to be a part of it,” said Anthony Ingruber.

Starring in Avalon High are: Britt Robertson (“Life Unexpected”) as Allie Pennington, Gregg Sulkin (“Wizards of Waverly Place, “Disney UK “As the Bell Rings”) as Will Wagner, Joey Pollari (Disney XD's "Skyrunners") as Miles, Devon Graye ("Dexter") as Marco, Molly Quinn ("Castle") as Jen, ChrisTavarez ("Big Momma's House 2") as Lance, and Steve Valentine ("I'm in the Band," "Wizards of Waverly Place The Movie," "Crossing Jordan") as Mr. Moore.

The teleplay, based on the book by Meg Cabot, was written by Julie Sherman Wolfe ("Jonas," "Phil of the Future") and is directed by Stuart Gillard (Disney Channel's "Hatching Pete," "90210"). "Avalon High" is a production of Sudden Motion Productions, Inc. and Ranger Productions Ltd.

While Disney is hard at work concocting the next big teen musical, they also are covering the rest of their bases. Variety reports that the Mouse House has signed on "Life Unexpected" star Britt Robertson to take the lead in the TV adaptation of Meg Cabot's "Avalon High."

For those of you who remember that far back, Meg Cabot also penned another little book called "The Princess Diaries," which Disney adapted and boosted Anne Hathaway to international fame. While that was made for the big screen and this for television, there still is a good chance of this Disney Channel film being Britt's big break.

The story follows a teenager named Ellie who transfers to a new high school called Avalon High. She soon discovers that her classmates are reincarnations of King Arthur and his court, for better or for worse, and that she also has a role to play in the unfolding story. The film will also starSelena Gomez's "Wizards of Waverly Place" costar Gregg Sulkin as well as Joey Pollari, Devon Graye and Molly Quinn.

The script was written by Julie Sherman Wolfe and will be directed by "90210" and "One Tree Hill" director Stuart Gillard. "Avalon High" is starting production in New Zealand right now and is expected to hit the Disney Channel in the fall.

Are you excited to see Britt in a TV movie? Are you a big fan of Meg Cabot's book?

Q: Is it true that blond girl from Life Unexpected is going to star in the Disney Channel movie of Avalon High?

Yes, it’s true! You can read about it here.

A few readers have pointed out that Britt is blonde, and that Ellie (in the book) is brunette.

Some of you may remember almost ten years ago the ruckus that was stirred when it was announced that a brunette would be playing the part of Mia (a character who is a blonde in the book version of The Princess Diaries).

Back then I was like, “You know what you guys? It’s not going to be EXACTLY like the book because it’s a movie and no movie can ever be EXACTLY like the book because they have to smush 300 pages of text into 90 pages (that’s one minute of screen time per page). Also, it’s someone else’s imagining of the story, not yours or mine. Let’s see how she can act. Give it a chance!”

And you did! And look how well that turned out (even if I’m still waiting for that Princess Diaries DVD and merchandising money. Oh, well).

So, thanks for looking out for me (and my characters). You guys completely rock my world.

But I think we should remember the message of Avalon High (and Runaway, and Princess Diaries, and uh, all my books, I guess), after all:

Never judge people by their looks. It’s who we are on the inside that matters!
