Sneak Peek: See Clips from the Series Finale of Wizards of Waverly Place! (VIDEO)
If you've been keeping up with the Disney Channel hit show Wizards of Waverly Place, you know it is coming to a sad end next month! After four years of hilarious stunts, unpredictable plots, magic mayhem, and an Emmy Award, the cast is ready to say goodbye.
The hit show brought us teen super star Selena Gomez, who's career has been nothing but booming the past year! Celebuzz got a chance to interview the cast and get some scoop on their best memories, what they'll miss, being JB's girlfriend and what's in the works for the future. Plus, if you just can't wait to see what happens next, you're in luck! We also have an exclusive clip from the one hour finale!
Here's a quick catch up: In the finale, the Russo siblings Justin, Alex and Max, face a sudden challenge where they must go through an ultimate test to see which one of them gets to keep their wizardly powers. The anticipation has been rising and fans keep trying to figure out who will be the winner. We sat down with Selena, David Henrie and Jake T. Austin to get some info on their best memories.
What are you going to miss most about each other?
Selena: Honestly, the fighting with him. (David) I am, because it was the best, whenever I read scripts or read anything and its bickering, I've never done it as well as when I did it with David, on the show and in real life. It was good and it was fun!
David: Yeah it was fun. I don’t know, she’s a lot fun I had a good time with her.
Jake: I’m going to miss working with the crew, working with the cast every day. I’m going to miss playing my character Max because it was so much fun with the unpredictable antics that the writers wrote. We’re going to miss it, but it’s not like we are going to cut contact from each other! We still know each other, we’re still involved. It’s just not going to the same work place and be in that environment ever again. The only way that we will be able to relive that is by watching the episodes. It’s kind of sad, but at the same time you have to be appreciative of what we had.
What's the best thing that you got out of this experience?
S: I learned a lot. Whenever people ask me that, even if it’s not in an interviews, I always say my cast and my crew just taught me so much! I thank David and Jake, especially David, for challenging me as an actress because he opened me up and made me better.
Did you take any mementos from the show?
S: The producers from the shows gave us our wands, it was really cool. It’s this cool glass case with a little engraving with each of our wands in it.
J: Yeah they gave us our wands, menus, we took everything! Anything to remember I guess.
Selena, how excited are you about being a big sister?
S: I’m very excited, very, very excited! It’s something that my parents have been wanting for a really long time. They’ve been trying and now it finally happened, so they’re excited. We are doing the nursery and all that stuff, so it’s going to be really exciting for me!
You have powers on the show, if you could have one superpower what would it be?
S: I wouldn’t do anything because me with magic is awful! Do you see on our show? Do you see that it never works on the show, so I don’t know how we would do it in real life.
D: I probably would do a ‘make it disappear’ spell. Just anything you don’t like just make it disappear. If someone asks you something that you don’t necessarily like, paparazzi, if something is repetitive over the day, and it’s annoying you can just make it disappear.
Selena, How does it feel to be the girlfriend of a superstar like Justin Bieber who has a lot of fans?
S: I think fans in general, whether it’s his, whether it’s mine, whether it’s David’s, I think fans in general are passionate and they love that person and they commit to it. It’s really beautiful, it’s a beautiful connection and I love it. I don’t think it’s bad at all.
What’s next for you? What’s in the works for you?
D: I just did this movie in Mexico called Little Boy in Rosarito for a few months. That was a lot of fun, it’s a WWII drama so it’s totally different than anything I’ve ever done. It’s got Kevin James, Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson, Sean Astin. That comes out at the end of next year and a movie in February called Borrowers. And you have two movies coming out, tell us about them Selena.
S: I’ll be shooting two movies in the beginning of next year. One will be called Spring Breakers and the other Hot Mess. They’re both different, the first one is this really fun, independent, dark movie and the second one is a comedy and it’s fun. It’s about these four girls, it’ll be cool. And then I’ll be working on my fourth album.
J: I have a movie called New Years Eve that is out now, that’s been out for like a week. And I have a movie called Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn hoping to come out soon.
How do you think fans will respond to the finale?
J: For the most part fans will be excited! I think their expectations are met because there are certain fans that only want Alex to win, certain fans that want Justin to win, or Max. I hope everyone gets what they want in the conclusion. There are some people that will be a little disappointed but it’s a really cool ending and it’s something that appeals to everybody.
Who do you think will be the winner? Be sure to watch which one of these wizards gets to keep their powers January 6th on the Disney Channel.
