[Via Examiner.com...]

It's a Laugh Productions is producing the upcoming hour-long Wizards of Waverly Place special for Disney Channel titled "The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex". Background extras are currently being hired and will be cast throughout production. Shooting is taking 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 agreed to reunite to bring their fans one last grand adventure!

Gonzalez directed the majority of "Wizards of Waverly Place" episodes, and has also directed multiple episodes of the Disney Channel shows "Pair of Kings," "Lab Rats," "Kickin' It," and "A.N.T. Farm". The creative team of Ben Montanio and Vince Cheung have written for such hit shows as "Married with Children," "Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior," "The Steve Harvey Show," and "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide".
