Selena Gomez returns to executive-produce and star in one of Disney Channel’s most successful series ever in the television event “The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex," premiering tonight (8 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. Starring Selena Gomez, Jake T. Austin, Jennifer Stone, Maria Canals-Barrera, David DeLuise, Gregg Sulkin and Beau Mirchoff, the special is based on the multiple Emmy Award-winning Disney Channel original series Wizards of Waverly Place, which, during its series run was TV’s No. 1 series across Kids 2-11, Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14.
In “The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex,” the Russo family and friends travel to Tuscany, Italy, to meet their long lost relatives… but when Alex (Gomez) tries to prove she’s more than a seemingly carefree young Wizard, she inadvertently conjures a spell that creates a Good Alex and an Evil Alex. When Evil Alex gets roped into a charming young wizard’s foreboding plan to take over the world, Good Alex must find a way to save her family and humankind, which leads to a monumental battle between the two versions of herself—all atop the Tower of Pisa.
