The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex Disney Channel

It’s easy to forget Selena Gomez once had humble beginnings as a Disney Channel star, featuring in the popular Wizards of Waverly Place, before leaving her adolescence behind and entering a new world of sex appeal and various film opportunities. She’s branched out quite nicely since Wizards had its series finale – her R-rated film, Spring Breakers, is hotly anticipated – but she hasn’t forgotten her roots, which is a refreshing change of pace. Other former Disney Channel stars – I’m looking at you, Miley – ran completely in the opposite direction of the family friendly network. Gomez, on the other hand, is more than willing to return to where she began, even if it’s just for a little while.
