LEGEND LIVES ON AT AVALON HIGH

BRITT ROBERTSON AND GREGG SULKIN STAR IN DISNEY CHANNEL'S ORIGINAL MOVIE "AVALON HIGH," A MODERN DAY TWIST ON CAMELOT, PREMIERING FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12

"Avalon High," a new Disney Channel Original Movie that puts a contemporary twist on Arthurian legend, premieres FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel and Disney Mobile for Sprint TV, MobiTV and Flo TV. Starring Britt Robertson ("Life Unexpected") and Gregg Sulkin ("Wizards of Waverly Place," Disney Channel UK's "As the Bell Rings"), the movie is based upon the award-winning novel by best-selling author Meg Cabot ("The Princess Diaries"). It follows Allie, a transfer student to Avalon High, who discovers that her new classmates are reincarnations of King Arthur and his Court.

Beginning Friday, October 15, DisneyChannel.com invites users to participate in a weekly "Trivia Challenge" on Arthurian legend. Each week a new set of questions will be released leading up to the premiere. Players must complete all five weeks of trivia to earn virtual gems that will unlock a mystery game.

An exclusive preview of "Avalon High" will be available beginning Friday, November 5, on Disney Channel on Demand to a variety of affiliates including Cablevision, Time Warner and Verizon FiOS TV customers.

In "Avalon High," Allie Pennington is ecstatic when her parents, traveling professors, 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.

The movie stars Britt Robertson as Allie Pennington, Gregg Sulkin as Will Wagner, Joey Pollari (Disney XD's "Skyrunners") as Miles, Devon Graye ("Dexter") as Marco, Molly Quinn ("Castle") as Jen, Chris Tavarez ("Big Momma's House 2") as Lance, Don Lake ("The Bonnie Hunt Show") as Allie's Dad and Steve Valentine ("I'm In The Band," "Wizards of Waverly Place The Movie," "Crossing Jordan") as Mr. Moore.

The teleplay, based upon the book written by Meg Cabot, was written by Julie Sherman Wolfe ("JONAS," "Phil of the Future") and Amy Talkington ("Confessions"). "Avalon High" was directed and co-produced by Stuart Gillard (Disney Channel's "Hatching Pete," "90210"); executive produced by Michael Jaffe ("The Informant!") and Howard Braunstein ("The Informant!") and produced by Janine Dickins ("Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior," "Power Rangers Operation Overdrive"). "Avalon High" is a production of Sudden Motion Productions, Inc. and Ranger Productions Ltd.
