A TV movie slated to premiere later this year on Disney Channel, 'High' is an action mystery about King Arthur's legacy which is coming alive in contemporary world.
A new Disney Channel Original Movie (DCOM) is coming out and the first trailer has just been released. "Avalon High", a fantasy drama based on novel by Meg Cabot, is featuring "Life Unexpected" star Brittany Robertson as the lead character named Allie Pennington and "Wizards of Waverly Place" star Gregg Sulkin as Will Wagner.
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 the mystery of Avalon High before notorious traitor Mordred wins again.
No premiere date has been announced but it is expected to be within this year.
