Selena Gomez is returning to her Disney roots with a new movie based on the show that made her a household name.

The 20-year-old Latina will reprise her role at Alex Russo from The Wizards of Waverly Place in the upcoming Disney movie “The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex”.

The Russo family and friends are headed to Tuscany, Italy, to meet their long lost relatives, but when Alex 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.

Gomez played Alex Russo for four seasons and 106 episodes.

The Wizards movie is scheduled to premiere on Friday, March 15, 2013.
