It's official! Selena Gomez is reuniting with Wizards of Waverly Place
Not only will Selena be starring in the big event, but she is also executive producing! Sel chatted with Radio Disney host Ernie D. yesterday, explaining her reasoning for the move. “I'm not ready for it to be over, so I just kind of want to do one more thing,” she said. And as for the decision to try her hand at the action behind the lens, she said, “It was my idea to kind of start this, because I wanted to do it really badly. I want to make sure I promise the cast and the fans a really, really good hour-long event that will leave them feeling good.” We’re glad you brought it back, Sel!
So what exactly will take place in this new special? The story’s set to revolve around the Russo family visiting Tuscany, Italy to reunite with their long-lost family. While there, Alex (Selena Gomez) accidentally conjures a spell that causes, well, double Alex trouble! Good Alex and Evil Alex must battle to see who will come out on top. At the same time, she must prevent a charming wizard from taking over the world, while saving her family and everyone else!
Mark your calendars! The wizardly reunion is planned to air in early 2013 on Disney Channel.
