Selena Gomez and David Henrie are reprising their iconic roles as the mischievous siblings, Alex and Justin, in the much-anticipated sequel to Wizards of Waverly Place. After months of speculation, Disney Channel finally revealed the title of the upcoming installment during its 2024 upfront presentation: Wizards Beyond Waverly Place. Alongside the title announcement, the channel treated fans to a sneak peek with first-look posters featuring Gomez and Henrie, along with new additions to the Russo family.

The original fantasy series, which aired from 2007 to 2012, captured audiences with its magical adventures, culminating in a television movie and a standalone continuation in 2013. As Selena Gomez’s Alex Russo took the lead, her on-screen brother Justin, portrayed by David Henrie, added depth to the Russo family dynamics.

The unveiling of the sequel brought excitement as set photos showcased Gomez and Henrie in character, wielding their magic wands and flashing smiles that harken back to the beloved series.

Moreover, the sequel’s plot details hint at a new chapter in the Russo family saga. Justin, now leading a normal life with his wife Giada and their children Roman and Milo, finds himself drawn back into the world of magic when Alex seeks his help in mentoring her daughter, Billie. As the siblings navigate their magical responsibilities, they must also safeguard the future of the Wizard World.

The storyline builds upon the legacy of the original series, where the Russo children inherit their family’s magic, with Alex ultimately becoming the Family Wizard. Set years after the events of the original show, the sequel promises to explore the Russo siblings’ continued adventures and the complexities of balancing magic with everyday life.

In addition to reprising her role, Selena Gomez takes on the role of executive producer alongside David Henrie and Gary Marsh. With production underway, Wizards Beyond Waverly Place is slated for release later this year, offering fans a nostalgic return to the whimsical world of wizards and spells.
