Fans of Wizards of Waverly Place might want to brace themselves because Selena Gomez just revealed that she’s “1,000 percent down” for a reboot of the magical series, and everyone is freaking out. Yeah, this is seriously the best news ever!
“It makes me very happy. It was one of the greatest times of my life,” the singer gushed about the Disney Channel show during a recent interview with KISS FM U.K. “I will never forget it. I still talk to some of the people from the show.”
When the radio host asked the 27-year-old “Bad Liar” songstress if she would ever be willing to reprise her role as Alex Russo for a reboot, she admitted, “I actually would love to. I don’t know when that will happen or if that will happen but I am 1,000 percent down.”
“It’s not formal, but Selena and I sit and talk about what would the reboot be, and we have a whole take. We have a whole thing,” the actor told Entertainment Tonight. “We want to start the show like a few years later. Start them off at the worst place ever so that way throughout the series you give them a nice, beautiful arch of reuniting. Start them off divided. Alex is a fashionista, off killing it in some other part of the realm. Justin’s, like, the principal [of WizTech] who has a family now… [Jake T. Austin‘s] Max has the sub shop, but it’s run down. Start us all completely discombobulated and then throughout the course of the series you bring us all together.”
How awesome would that be? He later took to Twitter, writing, “Just out of curiosity, who would want a Wizards reunion?” and some more of the cast and crew let fans know that they were also totally down for a reboot!
Uhhh…ME. 😄 https://t.co/qp2G91EwbO
