Disney Channel's hit special event "The Wizards Return: Alex vs Alex," starring superstar sensation, Selena Gomez reprising her role as Alex Russo, makes its highly-anticipated debut on DVD – June 25, 2013! Making the release a must-own, the DVD debut of "The Wizards Return: Alex vs Alex" also contains the final episode of the original series ‘Wizards of Waverly Place,' the most-watched series finale in Disney Channel's history. "Overflowing with big adventure, stunning special effects, epic stunts, exotic locales, and supernatural elements, "The Wizards Return: Alex vs Alex" is an exciting collectible for any Wizards fan and a fantastic adventure for the whole family."
The Russo family headed to Italy, to meet their long lost relatives... but when Alex (Selena 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.
"The Wizards Return: Alex vs Alex" was written by Vince Cheung and Ben Montanio ("Wizards of Waverly Place") and Dan Berendsen (ABC Family's "Baby Daddy"). Selena Gomez, Cheung and Montanio and Dan Cross and David Hoge are the executive producers. It was directed by Victor Gonzalez ("Wizards of Waverly Place"). "Wizards of Waverly Place" was created by Todd J. Greenwald ("Hannah Montana") and is a production of It's a Laugh Productions for Disney Channel.
