Hold on to your magic wands, because Disney Channel is about to resurrect the spellbinding masterpiece – Wizards of Waverly Place is making a comeback!
In an act of pure wizardry, the network has conjured up a pilot for a reboot, and guess who’s riding the broomstick of nostalgia back into our lives? None other than the dynamic duo, Selena Gomez and David Henrie! Yes, the wizard siblings extraordinaire, Alex and Justin Russo, are dusting off their spellbooks for another round of mischief.
Selena, the queen of Instagram enchantment, shared her excitement with the world. “So excited!!” she shouted in one story. And in another, she declared, “We’re back” in all caps, accompanied by a magical snapshot of her and David. Because if you’re not shouting about a wizard revival, are you really living?
But hold onto your crystal balls, because David Henrie, aka Justin Russo, had some words of wizard wisdom too. “The Russo’s are excited to become a part of your family, once again, but we’ve grown 😊 2024, the year magic comes back!” he proclaimed alongside a snapshot of the pilot script. So, get ready for some seriously upgraded wizardry, folks – it’s not just any magic, it’s 2024 magic!
Now, for the spellbinding plot twist! According to the mystical Deadline, the new series will pick up after a mysterious incident at WizTech. Justin Russo, now a full-fledged adult with a mortgage and a lawnmower, has ditched his wizard powers for a taste of the ordinary human life. But wait, there’s more! A powerful young wizard in desperate need of training crashes into his life like a misdirected Quidditch ball. Cue the dramatic music, because Justin must now confront his magical past to ensure the future of the Wizard World. Talk about a midlife magical crisis!
Selena will make a grand entrance as a guest star in the pilot episode, while David is stepping up as a series regular. They’re not just waving wands, they’re wielding executive producer hats too. Double trouble, indeed!
Joining this magical reunion are Janice LeAnn Brown as the young wizard Billie, who’s about to get a crash course in magic from Justin. And there’s more magical lineage with Alkaio Thiele as Justin’s eldest son and Mimi Gianopulos as his wife Giada. It’s a family affair with a sprinkle of pixie dust!
So, get your wizard hats out of storage, dust off your spell scrolls, and mark your calendars for 2024 – the year when the Russo’s return, and magic becomes cool again! It’s not just a reboot; it’s a spellbinding comedy extravaganza!
