Some Disney Channel fans got a bonus present from the network the day after Christmas. Someone at the network decided to dust off “Wizards of Waverly Place” for an all-day marathon, and Twitter couldn’t get enough of it. One even called the series starring Selena Gomez “the best thing to happen since sliced bread.”

Selena Gomez had a special get together with some familiar faces on Saturday. The singer attended David Henrie’s wedding, where she got a chance to catch up with several cast members from her old show, “The Wizards of Waverly Place.” Taking time to pose with Jake T. Austin, Jennifer Stone and David DeLuise, Selena was all smiles as she cozied up to her old cast mates for pics.
The groom spoke with People about the wedding, sharing that no one had expected to be going to Selena’s wedding first: “No one bet on Jake and I didn’t bet on Selena. I probably bet on myself. I always knew I wanted to get married and looked forward to being a husband.”
Selena wore a sleeveless, patterned burgundy dress with her hair done up in braids. The silhouette was set off by a turtleneck neckline. There was no more talk of a reunion movie for the Disney show–at least not any that made it on Instagram this time.

The “Wizards of Waverly Place” reunion just keeps getting more real for those Disney Channel fans that want the show to be revived. Soon after Selena Gomez and her on-screen brother David Henrie thought of what their Disney characters would be doing in present day, the creator of the show, Todd J. Greenwald, jumped in with his own thoughts.
Selena Gomez had a reunion with her “Wizards of Waverly Place” co-star David Henrie on Saturday night. Over wine and diner, the duo was joined by friends as they argued about who set up Selena’s Twitter account. Before long, the unofficial “Wizards” reunion had Selena and David wondering what a bona fide one would look like. As the wine flowed, they tried to figure out where their characters would be now, four years after the end of the series.
“Alex is for sure single,” Selena said of her own character, Alex Russo. “Justin’s got like 15 children, Alex is single,” David agreed, referring to Justin Russo. “She’s still trying to find herself,” he added.
David seemed to pick up on Selena’s sensitivity around Alex not having her life together, so he decided to ask Selena if she thought Alex might have a boyfriend or a husband. That led Selena to give a definitive answer on what Alex would be up to now.
“You know what?” Selena said. “She’s killing the game–that’s what she’s doing.”
