She might be coming to the big screen in her upcoming film Spring Breakers, but Selena Gomez hasn't forgotten her roots!
The actress is set to star in and executive produce a one hour Wizards of Waverly Place special that will reunite her with former co-stars Jennifer Stone, Maria Canals-Barrera, Jake T. Austin, David DeLuise and Gregg Sulkin, according to an announcement from Disney.
"I wanted to do it really badly. I wanted 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," Gomez told Radio Disney of her decision.
"With the phenomenal ratings of the Wizards finale earlier this year, it became clear that fans of the series were not ready to say goodbye to Selena of the rest of the Wizards cast. As such, we're thrilled that the cast has agreed to reunite to bring their fans one last grand adventure," Disney creative officer Gary Marsh said in a statement.
Production on the special starts in October. The story line will find the Russo family and friends traveling to Italy to meet their long lost relatives.
The Wizards series finale was one of the most-watched kids programs on cable this year with 11.3 million total viewers.
