Selena Gomez is coming back to star in a one-hour Wizards of Waverly Place special. She will be reuniting with co-stars Jennifer Stone, Maria Canals-Barrera, Jake T. Austin, David DeLuise and Gregg Sulkin.
The actress told Radio Disney, “I’m working on my new record and I had great projects I was a part of this year, but ‘Wizards’ and Disney Channel and everything that is a part of this is my home. I’m not ready for it to be over, so I just kind of want to do one more thing.”
MTV reports the story line follows Selena’s character Alex and the Russo family traveling to Tuscany, Italy. Along the way, she accidentally casts a spell that creates a Good Alex and an Evil Alex.
Good Alex is then forced to step in and save the world from Evil Alex’s plot to take over the world, culminating in an epic battle between the two Alexes atop the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Gomez – who is also the executive producer – added, “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.”
Production starts in October and the show will air on Disney Channel in early 2013.
