The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex, the Wizards of Waverly Place hour-long reunion event, will premiere on the Disney Channel on Friday, March 15 at 8 p.m. EST.
According to The Huffington Post, Selena Gomez has returned to star in and executive-produce the movie. She will also be joined by her co-stars Jake T. Austin, Jennifer Stone, Maria Canals-Barrera, David DeLuise and Gregg Sulkin.
Beau Mirchoff, who stars in Awkward, has been added as a new cast member, but David Henrie will not return to play his role of Justin Russo.
"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," Gomez said of the reunion, as quoted by Hollywood Life.
During the reunion event the Russo family, Harper (Stone) and Mason (Sulkin) will travel to Tuscany to meet the Russo's long-lost relatives. Trouble arises when Alex (Gomez) accidentally performs a spell that creates a Good Alex and an Evil Alex. This leads to the two versions of Alex battling it out on top of none other than the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
