Flashback Friday! 5 Stars You Never Realized Were on 'Wizards of Waverly Place' Until Right Now

Confession time — JJJ is seriously still in love with the brilliance of Wizards of Waverly Place.

We love everything about it — from Alex’s snarkiness, Justin’s smartness, Max’s weirdness, Harper’s crazy outfits to the magic, the monsters and everything. We just love it.

But up until last night, we didn’t realize how many guest stars, who starred alongside Selena Gomez, David Henrie, Jake T. Austin and Jennifer Stone, took a big leap in their careers and are killing it.

Everyone pretty much knows the big guest stars — Shakira, Dwayne Johnson, Jeff Garlin, Gregg Sulkin, Bridgit Mendler — but we totally forgot about these five guest stars that are pretty big in Hollywood right now.

'Wizards of Waverly Place' Creator Responds to Selena Gomez & David Henrie's Reunion

It sounds like a Wizards of Waverly Place reboot isn’t completely out of the realm of possibility.

After former stars Selena Gomez and David Henrie talked about where their characters would be today, creator Todd J. Greenwald is responding with his own ideas.

“Umm @selenagomez @DavidHenrie…. Max sold the SubStation. It’s now a Jamba Juice. #wowp,” he tweeted. “Justin can’t stop dating Centaurs… he can’t quit the freaks. @selenagomez @DavidHenrie”

Todd continued, “I’m thinking a grown-up theatrical version of #wowp would be kinda fresh. #reboot”

TELL JJJ: Do you want to see Wizards come back in some way?

Welcome to Instagram stories, Selena Gomez!

The singer and actress reunited with her former Wizards of Waverly Place co-star David Henrie tonight, and he helped her create her first post.

In case you didn’t know, David was the one who helped Selena set up her Twitter account almost eight years ago, too!

Possibly in honor of the five-year anniversary of the show’s finale last night, the former Disney co-stars imagined what their Wizards characters would be doing today.

Some highlights: David‘s Justin Russo has 15 kids, Jake T. Austin‘s Max Russo either owns the substation, has lost the substation and is selling sandwiches on the street, OR is overweight and has kids as well.

And Selena‘s Alex Russo? “You know what, she’s killing the game, that’s what she’s doing,” Selena decides.
