Disney is bringing back their old hit “The Wizards of Waverly Place” as a new special called “The Wizards Return”.
“The Wizards of Waverly Place” went 4 seasons and it’s finale last January garnered over 10 million viewers. A year after the finale, Disney is bringing the return of the Wizards as a Disney Channel 1 hour special.
Right now the new “Wizards” is being produced as a special and there is no word yet if it will turn into a new TV series. Fans of “Wizards” should be excited to see the cast coming back at least one more time.
Wizards Return will reunite the Wizards of Waverly place cast, this time in a new country.
The cast of Wizards of Waverly Place included:
Selena Gomez as Alex Russo
David Henrie as Justin Russo
Jake T. Austin as Max Russo
Jennifer Stone as Harper Finkle
María Canals Barrera as Theresa Russo
David DeLuise as Jerry Russo
The entire cast except for David Henrie will be doing this project and we can expect to see them on screen soon since the show will premiere in 2013.
In the “Wizards” special named ‘The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex’, Alex goes to Tuscany to meet relatives from Jerry’s side. During this visit she creates a copy of herself which ends up being her evil side and ultimately leads to a ‘good vs. evil’ battle on top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. That good vs. evil motif is what gives the show its subtitle ‘Alex vs, Alex’.
Here is Disney’s promo for the ‘Wizards Return’
The special will be a 2 part series and filming of the show just wrapped.
Selena Gomez is one of the executive producers of the new Disney special. Selena Gomez even shared pics and tidbits from the set as they filmed. She even shared a picture of the top page of her copy of the script.
For those that wanted a small part in the “Wizards return” or wanted to get in on the act as an extra, it may be a bit late since extras casting has already been done and filming has wrapped. But, Disney may do another “Wizards” special or movie and you may still get your chance.
