Though the Emmy-winning series ended back in January, Selena Gomez announced that “Wizards of Waverly Place” will come back for a special one-hour event.
The 20-year-old former Nickelodeon starlet will serve as both an executive producer and star of the show. She explained, “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 they can enjoy and will leave them feeling good.”
In the new special, Alex and the rest of the Russo clan to Tuscany, Italy, to meet their long lost relatives. Of course the trip turns awry when Alex inadvertently casts a spell that creates a Good Alex and an Evil Alex. Unfortunately, Evil Alex gets charmed by another evil wizard’s plan to take over the world, and Good Alex must find a way to save the day, resulting in an over-the-top battle between the two Alexs on top of the Tower of Pisa.
While no exact date has yet been set, look for the special to air on Disney Channel in early 2013. The full interview with Selena will air on Radio Disney on Saturday, September 29th at 3:00pm
