America's favorite "wizards" return to Disney Channel this March!

Selena Gomez is back to executive-produce and star in the television event, "The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex" -- a movie based on the late "Wizards of Waverly Place" series -- airing on Friday, March 15 at 8 p.m. EST.

Along with Gomez, Jake T. Austin, Jennifer Stone, Maria Canals-Barrera, David DeLuise and Gregg Sulkin will co-star. Though David Henrie will not be back for "The Wizards Return," Beau Mirchoff of "Awkward" fame joins the cast.

In "The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex," the Russo family -- along with Harper (Stone) and Mason (Sulkin) -- travel to Tuscany to meet their long-lost relatives. Of course, Alex (Gomez) accidentally conjures a spell that creates a Good Alex and an Evil Alex. Eventually, the two versions of Alex are left to battle it out ... atop the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Tune in for the premiere of "The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex" on Friday, March 15 at 8 p.m. EST.
