“It was my idea to kind of start this, because I wanted to do it really badly. I want to make sure I promise the cast and the fans a really, really good hour-long event that they can enjoy and will leave them feeling good,” Selena recently shared about the special.
Airing early 2013, the Russo family and their 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.
Jake even chatted about his on-screen sister Selena Gomez taking on the role of executive producer, saying, “Celebrities are progressing and maneuvering through different parts of the industry. It’s smart for her to do that as a producer,” he shared. “It’s a lot of work putting together the financing, detailing, production, and everything. I’m glad she’s ready to tackle all those responsibilities.”
Jake went on to talk about his other co-star David Henrie, who unfortunately won’t be a part of the reunion due to a conflict in his schedule. “He’s gotta do what he’s gotta do as a professional and what’s going to benefit his career,” Jake said. “For me, I’m going to miss getting to play off him and work with him on camera, but he’s able to work on some projects that bring his talents to life.”
In the flick, the Russo family and their 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.
