Wizards of Waverly Place is making a triumphant return, and it’s about to get wilder than a rabbit at a magician’s convention. Brace yourselves for a rollercoaster of laughter and nostalgia as we dive into the behind-the-scenes shenanigans of our favorite spellbinding show!
Selena Gomez and David Henrie, the dynamic duo that fueled our childhood fantasies, took to Instagram to give us a sneak peek into the enchanting world of the Wizards reboot. Picture this: Selena rocking a pair of red glasses at what seems to be a dinner table, looking like she’s about to cast a spell that turns broccoli into pizza (we’ve all wished for that, admit it). Meanwhile, David is striking a pose, holding a pint-sized wizard-in-training and grinning like he just discovered a spell for eternal happiness. And that’s just the tip of the wizard hat!
In the magical group photo, the new cast and crew are making goofy faces, clearly ready to embark on a mystical adventure of epic proportions. David captioned the photo with a simple yet powerful statement: “Let’s make some [magic].” Cue the applause and confetti because, my friends, the wizarding world is about to be shook!
Last week, Deadline dropped the bombshell that a Wizards sequel is officially in the works, and Selena is set to star in the pilot episode. Will she continue to grace our screens in subsequent episodes? The suspense is killing us faster than a boggart facing a mirror.
The plot twist? This time, it’s all about Justin Russo (played by the forever charming David Henrie). He’s been living a muggle life with his wife and kids, probably trying to master the art of doing laundry without magic. Enter Billie, a young wizard played by Janice LeAnn Brown, seeking Justin’s magical expertise. Cue the “wanded” adventures!
Now, let’s talk about Alex Russo, the queen of sass and spellbinding comebacks. Selena Gomez is dusting off her wand to reprise her role in the pilot episode. What’s Alex been up to since 2012, you ask? The last time we saw her, she was conquering the wizarding world, clinching her relationship victory, and leaving us all in awe. The burning question: Did she finally perfect the spell to keep a pizza warm forever?
As for the OG cast—Maria Canals-Barrera, David DeLouise, Jennifer Stone, and Jake T. Austin—we’re all holding our breath like we just cast a bubble-head charm, desperately hoping they’ll make a comeback. Fingers crossed for more magical reunions than a Hippogriff family picnic!
So, grab your wizard hats, dust off those spellbooks, and get ready for a spelltacular ride down memory lane. The Wizards of Waverly Place reboot is brewing up a cauldron of laughter, mischief, and magic.
