First look at Evil Alex from The Wizards Return

The Wizards Return poster - Selena Gomez as Evil Alex - Wizards of Waverly Place TV special

Entertainment weekly gives us a first look at the poster for The Wizards Return, the new Wizards of Waverly Place TV special. E! Online also has an image of Selena Gomez decked out in leather as Alex Russo.

The premise of the special has Alex vs. Alex as good and evil Alex square off against each other. Evil Alex with a white streak in her hair is consistent with how Alex looked when she turned evil in the “Saving WizTech” two parter from season two. In the background of the poster is the leaning tower of Pisa, which is where the battle in the film is meant to take place.

New Wizards of Waverly Place special in the works

Selena Gomez as good and evil Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place

The Wizards of Waverly Place TV show ended earlier this year. Though many have been hopeful for some sort of follow up movie, we haven’t had any real confirmation of this… until now! The show’s star Selena Gomez has confirmed in a Radio Disney interview (included below) that a new one hour Wizards of Waverly Place special will be airing on Disney Channel early next year. She will star and be executive producer on the project.

The story has the Russo family traveling to Tuscany where Alex splits herself into Good and Evil Alex. The climax of the movie will have the two battling at the tower of Pisa. I haven’t seen a Good and Evil version of someone battle over the tower of Pisa since Superman 3. Hopefully this one won’t take place in front of a blue screen.

The Powet Top 5 – Best Disney Channel series

Walt Disney Television Logo

Welcome to the Powet Top 5, where we explore the top (and bottom) 5 items we think are relevant to any of a variety of topics that span the imagination. Sit back, read, and respond.

Disney Channel shows get a bad rap! I get a lot of flack to watching them. While they are at times pretty horrible, there are a few of them that are really good and worth checking out. While everything on this list is admittedly fairly juvenile, and often subject to cliches, these shows are often very funny, and are a kind of proving ground for some pretty good actors.

Disney makes a lot of shows, but this list is just about Disney Channel series. This means nothing from the Disney afternoon or anything that wasn’t made for Disney Channel proper will be included. I also understand that everyone is in love with Phineas and Ferb but I haven’t watched that show so it’s not on my list. If you don’t like my list, let us know what yours is!

Our readers probably known him best as Mr. Pitt, Elaine’s eccentric and demanding boss from Seinfeld. One of this more notable gags had him keeping her late at work to pick out the perfect sock.

The Russo Family Wizard is…

Wizards of Waverly Place - Who Will Be the Family Wizard - Alex (Selena Gomez) Max (Jake T. Austin) and Justin (David Henrie) in the Wizard Competition

Wizards of Waverly Place has come to an end after four excellent seasons. With the finale came the long anticipated Wizard Competition, and with that an answer to the question that fans have been asking themselves for the past four years, “Who will be the Russo Family Wizard”? As is the case in all Wizard families, only one of the siblings is able to keep their Wizard powers and become a more powerful full Wizard, and this decision is made by way of a Wizard Competition. For the sake of spoilers, I will hold off on the reveal until later in the article.

The details of the Wizard Competition have always been a mystery. We do get an idea of what one might be like in “Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie” as Alex and Justin faced off against each other in an emergency competition. In that setting, they had to compete in a battle to reach a sphere using only the four elements. In this case, Alex won the Wizard Competition, and could easily have kept her full powers, but instead decided to return things to what they were to avoid having their family be torn apart.

Did Posh Spice and David Beckham name their daughter after Harper Finkle?

Harper Finkle Wearing an Outfit Made out of her Baby Clothes

A few days ago Posh Spice and her soccer playing husband had a kid, and this is apparently very important. The girl was named “Harper Seven Beckham”, a name which some report was inspired by the character Harper Finkle from the hit TV series “Wizards of Waverly Place“. The name was supposedly chosen by Harper’s older brothers who are big fans of the show. Other potential names for the girl were Alex, Russo and selena<3justin4everXOXOXO but they went with Harper because it "sounded trendier".

Many assume the girl’s middle name, “Seven” is based on the number of David Beckham’s soccer shirt. I was unable to verify this, because the Internet does not offer any pictures of David Beckham actually wearing a shirt. The true story is surely more interesting, as Seven is clearly a reference to the short lived character named Seven from the 7th season of “Married With Children”. I heard some British people say that David Beckham used to play football, so his interest in the show must derive from how impressed he is with Al Bundy scoring 4 touchdowns in a single game. Here’s hoping that the inevitable baby #5 will be named Buck Polk Beckham.

Jake T. Austin returning as Max on Wizards of Waverly Place

Justin and Alex turn Max into Maxine in Wizards of Waverly Place
Update 2011-03-09: I was wrong! Max returns this Friday, March 11th.

It looks like Jake T. Austin will finally be returning as Max on the hit Disney show Wizards of Waverly Place. Earlier this year Jake’s character Max was turned into a young girl in an unexpected twist and it wasn’t clear how long this change would last. Today Jake T. Austin confirmed in this twitter post that he’s “back on wizards set”.

So when will he be back? According to this twitter post by the show’s writer Todd J. Greenwald they are doing the table reading for the show’s 100th episode today. Max turned into Maxine, played by Bailee Madison, in episode 84 which aired on January 7th. The latest episode to air was episode 86 which aired last Friday. This would mean some 14 more episodes will play before Max’s return, though with Disney Channel’s erratic schedule who can say when this would be.

Alex Paints an Anarchy Symbol in Wizards of Waverly Place

Anarchy Symbol in Wizards of Waverly Place

Another fun little Easter Egg from the Disney TV show “Wizards of Waverly Place”. In episode 23 of season 2, “Paint by Committee”, Alex Russo, played by Selena Gomez, paints a giant letter A on a wall in an abandoned train tunnel. When asked about it’s meaning she says “It’s my initial in a circle representing … my initial in a circle.” but the symbol bears a striking resemblance to an anarchy symbol.

Anarchy SymbolWhat could be the symbolism behind this logo? Alex Russo is a pretty free spirited girl, often opposing authority and rules, so the anarchy symbol certainly applies on a fairly superficial level, but I wouldn’t go so far as to suggest the art department be insinuating we all be better off in a world without Government.

Later in the episode as Alex paints her mural “New York Above and Below” we can once again see the iconic “initial in a circle” shown in the below portion referred to as the “gritty grimy New York, filled with barf”.

Wizards of Waverly Place is known for hiding such symbols. Alex Russo can be seen wearing peace symbols as part of various outfits throughout the show. These occur so frequently that an effort is made to include at least one peace symbol in Selena Gomez’s outfits in every episode of season 2. As opposed to the anarchy symbolism, the crew have made clear that they have strong feelings about putting forth a positive message of peace. Earlier this month Powet reported on Selena wearing an I love hoe bags t-shirt. Though in that case it may have been a mere coincidence, this painting’s resemblance to an anarchy symbol seems to be more than chance.
