Selena Gomez To Make Final Return To Wizards Of Waverly Place
It has been revealed that Selena Gomez will make a final return to Disney as it’s announced she will star in a new Wizards of Waverly Place movie.
Despite recently trying to distance herself from her Disney past, and move on to more grown up acting roles, Selena Gomez has just signed up to make a one off movie of her hit Disney TV show Wizards of Waverly Place.
20 year-old Selena will return to her role of teenage wizard Alex Russo for one last time, despite leaving the show four years ago.
Sources close to Selena reveal her role on Wizards catapulted her to the global stardom she has now and she is truly thankful for the opportunities it has given. After leaving the TV show to focus on bigger acting projects, Selena admitted it was one of the hardest decisions she had ever made.
Returning to the show for the movie will give Selena the chance to thank those at Disney and her young fans for their support early on in her career. Selena will also be able to add the title of executive producer to her accolades, as it’s revealed she will also be producing the movie.
Filming of the movie is thought to commence early next month in Los Angeles. Whilst little is known about the script, it has been revealed the film will see the Russo family head on holiday to Tuscany. Along with Selena, her former cast mates Jake Austin, Jennifer Stone, Greg Sulkin and David Deluise have also signed up to the movie. The movie is scheduled to premiere on the Disney Channel early next year.
