Wizards of Waverly Place is back on TV March 15th, once again starring Selena Gomez as Alex Russo in a made for TV movie. The Wizards Return: Alex Vs. Alex even features a fight scene. Can you imagine Selena fighting?
According to a report from Hollywood Life, a newly released behind-the-scenes clip shows fans exactly what they’re in for, and introduces them to Beau Mirchoff as wicked wizard Dominic and Gregg Sulkin as Mason.
There’s a lot more action in The Wizards Return than in the TV series. Selena Gomez had to work hard to learn the physical aspects of the scene where Alex fights Alex (you have to tune in to find out what that means!) and she is especially excited about the movie premiere.
“I did a whole martial-arts fight sequence with myself,” she says. “I spent a day in between takes learning how to fight myself, so having to learn one choreography to the other side. That took us a long time to shoot, so I’m really happy with it. I think it’ll look really cool.”
That’s certainly a big change from the Selena people are accustomed toÂ—and it’s a far cry from the Alex Russo fans loved in the TV series, too.
