Disney Channel casting for 'Wizards of Waverly Place: The Wizards Special'

It's a Laugh Productions is producing the upcoming hour-long Wizards of Waverly Place special for Disney Channel tentatively titled "The Wizards Special". Casting for guest stars is underway, and the show's extras will be cast throughout production beginning October 22, 2012. Shooting will take place in Santa Clarita, CA. Disney Channel stated that after the huge ratings of the "Wizards" finale on January 6, 2012, it became obvious that fans of the show were not ready to say farewell to Selena or the rest of the cast. Therefore the cast has agreed to reunite to bring their fans one last grand adventure!

"The Wizards Special" has the Russo family and friends traveling to Tuscany, Italy, to meet their long lost relatives. However when Alex attempts to prove she is more than an apparently easy-going young Wizard, she mistakenly conjures a spell that creates a Good Alex and an Evil Alex. When Evil Alex gets sucked into a handsome and alluring young male wizard's malevolent plan to take over the world, Good Alex must discover a way to save her family and humankind, which leads to an epic battle between the two versions of herself high at the top of "Torre pendente di Pisa" - The Leaning Tower of Pisa.
