Selena Gomez has revealed she would be interested in a Wizards of Waverly Place reboot if Disney were to consider it. On December 13, the star answered some of the internet’s most popular questions about her during a radio interview. One of them was about the possibility of a reboot for the Disney Channel series, which ended in 2012.
The singer said of the series: ‘It makes me very happy. It was one of the greatest times of my life. I will never forget it. I still talk to some of the people from the show.
When asked if she’d be down for getting involved in a reboot, she said: ‘I actually would love to. I don’t know when that will happen or if that will happen but I am 1,000 percent down.’
Disney fans have begun thinking about show reboots in the aftermath of Lizzie McGuire receiving a revival, with Hilary Duff working on the new series alongside many of the familiar faces fans saw 15 years ago.
Selena isn’t the only star to reveal she’d get involved in a Wizards of Waverly Place reboot, as her co-star David Henrie said in September: ‘Selena and I sit and talk about what would the reboot be, and we have a whole take. We have a whole thing.’
‘We want to start the show like a few years later. Start them off at the worst place ever so that way throughout the series you give them a nice, beautiful arch of reuniting. Start them off divided.
‘Alex is a fashionista, off killing it in some other part of the realm. Justin’s, like, the principal [of WizTech] who has a family now…Max has the sub shop, but it’s run down. Start us all completely discombobulated and then throughout the course of the series you bring us all together.’
