The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising (2007) (part 11 of 14)
At that moment, Will looks up and… tadaa! The Wheel of Taranis suddenly appears in the sky! And, actually, the effect is pretty cool. He quickly grabs Gwen, and then they both do the Time-Travel Spin. I force myself not to sing “The Time Warp”, and find out they’ve ended up in ancient times, in the middle of a minor skirmish between pre-medieval warriors (Celtic music helpfully plays to give us a hint as to the time period). This scene is pretty neat; a bunch of warriors are raiding a village, and there’s people running everywhere, hacking each other up with axes. Will and a freaking-out Gwen run for shelter in what looks like a picnic shelter (what? That’s what it looks like!), where Gwen spots a kitten mewling pathetically and runs over to pick it up. Awww. Wait, what the hell does this have to do with anything?
