Product Description

The most magical event of the year is now even bigger, with more thrilling adventure! WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE THE MOVIE EXTENDED EDITION features exclusive footage, behind-the-scenes bonus and awesome extras that take you deeper into the mysterious world of wizardry! Embark on a supernaturally exciting adventure as the Russos, your favorite family of wizards-in-training, join together on a quest full of heart-stopping action and hilarious magical mishaps! While on vacation, Alex (Selena Gomez) accidentally casts a spell that threatens her family's existence! Max (Jake T. Austin) tries to keep his parents together while Alex and Justin (David Henrie) use every trick they know as they search for the "Stone of Dreams" to reverse the spell and save their family. You won't want to miss one extraordinary moment of this extended, magic-filled and action-packed movie!


The Disney series Wizards of Waverly Place has spawned its first full-length movie, and the film is full of out-of-control magic, teenage angst, and challenging family dynamics. Alex has never lacked attitude, but when she disobeys her mother, almost wrecks the diner, and risks the lives of herself and her friend Harper, her feistiness lands her in the middle of a magic-free Caribbean family vacation in which her attitude may just spoil the trip for everyone. Unbeknownst to their parents, Alex smuggled the forbidden book of spells into her luggage, and even the perfect Justin was unable to resist bringing along the family's all-powerful magic wand. After days of turning up her nose at her parent's romantic reminiscing and complaining throughout every family activity, Alex shouts out an impulsive wish that her parents had never met one another. The problem is, Alex is holding the family magic wand when she makes the wish and it instantly comes true. As Alex, Justin, and brother Max begin to realize the dire implications of their new situation, they try every spell they can think of to reverse the wish. When nothing works, they look to a street magician and his bird to help them find the stone of dreams, an important wizard artifact that possesses unlimited power. Their quest is filled with peril, but as Justin and Alex make their way through each challenge, they begin to realize how much they need one another and how important family really is. In the end, Alex and Justin are forced to compete against one another in a life-changing battle from which only one sibling can emerge victorious--the question is, even if one of them wins, will the family still lose? Also included on the DVD is a 10-minute bonus feature highlighting on-location fun and photography in Puerto Rico along with some of the cast members' favorite stunts, effects, costumes, and props.

Though each individual episode of the hit Disney Channel TV show "Wizards of Waverly Place" is fun and quirky in its own right, all the material (acting, plot, witty one-liners) seems to fly by so fast that the viewer isn't left with much real emotion. It's almost as if the show gets so caught up in the formula (Alex does bad but prevails, Justin does good but never gets rewarded, etc.) that it doesn't take enough time to slow down and really examine the relationships between any of the characters. Luckily, the "Wizards of Waverly Place" movie solves that problem.

For a basic plot summary, the magical Russo family begins the film with Mom and Dad dragging the kids off on a vacation to recreate their honeymoon. The usual eye-rolling and complaints begin, but Alex (played by the always-entertaining Selena Gomez) takes things one step too far by metaphorically wishing (while holding the family's magic wand) that her parents had never even met, thus they wouldn't be on this "stupid vacation" in the first place. Of course, thanks to the wand, that wish is granted, and suddenly the Russo siblings are no longer part of a family, as Mom and Dad don't even recognize each other. The rest of the film, then, centers on the kids' quest to find the "Stone of Dreams", a magical, enchanted item that can grant any wish or reverse any spell.

With the expanded feature-length runtime, the plot and character development of the film are able to be realized much more deeply than in any previous episode. We get to learn more about both parents and why they are like they are, as well as how the Russo children (namely Justin and Alex) view each other and what can be done to better those relations.

In "Wizards of Waverly Place - The Movie", the Russo family have a family vacation in the Caribbean that both Jerry and Theresa are excited about. But Alex who dislikes going on family trips, has a problem with her parents because she wants to party with her friend Harper Finkle (played by Jennifer Stone) and have fun. But when she steals her brother Justin's spellbook (which was given to him by her father), she misuses it and nearly gets herself and Harper killed. Her mother has had enough with her antics and she is told that she will be going on the family vacation and a rule to all kids, no magic will be used. Unknown to Justin, Alex has hidden the spellbook with her and plans to bring it on the trip.

While arriving at the Caribbean,the Russo's meet up with a street magician named Archie who claims he is a wizard like them (after Max uses his magic in public and levitating him). Archie tells them the story about how his parrot Giselle was actually human but needs their help in trying to revert her back and need to obtain a special stone. Of course, for Justin, he enjoys the adventure and to visit wizard sites but their parents who are protective of their children, tells Justin no.

As the family is having fun on their vacation, Alex is not. In fact, she wants to start having fun with the first guy she meets in the Caribbean and is invited to go out. But her mother forbids her to and Alex becomes inconsiderate to her mother. Because of that, her mother scolds her and tells her that when they arrive back home, she is grounded. Upset with her mother, she tells her that she wishes that she and her father never had met.

Once again,Disney has captured the essence of "Disney Magic",and with another great movie with Selena Gomez.This movie is great for all ages,young and old..then again those "young at heart.Alex and her family go on a trip to Jamaica,and along the way
we see Alex,Justin and Max up to their usual wizard antics.
In the end,Alex becomes the family wizard.It's a very well
written movie,I only wish it were alittle longer.
If anyone has a bright future ahead,its none other
than Miss Selena Gomez.

Relive the adventures of Alex,Justin and Max,as they attempt to restore
their family with the help of the stone of dreams.I think from this movie,
Alex has learned "be careful what you wish for".

I cannot wait to see what other movies lie ahead in Selena's Future.
This is definitely one for the Family DVD Library,of those who are true
diehard Disney Families,who love movies that have a heartwarming story.

After giving both «Lizzie McGuire» and «Hannah Montana» movie adaptations, the time has now come to give "Wizards of Waverly Place" a movie treatment. And why not? "Wizards" popularity has quickly increased and has become one of the most beloved shows on Disney Channel. But with "Wizards", the executives has decided to give a non-theatrical treatment. Ironically, in spite of a smaller format, this "Wizards" movie ends up as the most compelling movie adaptation of a Disney Channel show, comparing to the bland "Lizzie McGuire The Movie" and the poorly structured "Hannah Montana The Movie".

The adventurous story brings up many nods to both "Indiana Jones" and "Power Rangers". The Caribbean settings gives the film as fresh flavor and the special effects are quite impressive, considering this being a TV movie. This film is mostly carried by Selena Gomez, a extremely cute and skilled young lady, which does her best acting ever in this movie. Hopefully she'll leave Disney when she's wrapped up "Wizards" to develop her full acting potential. The rest of the cast are also decent in their parts, especially David DeLuise at the family dad Jerry.

As with "Hannah Montana The Movie", a more serious approach has been given to the "Wizards of Waverly Place The Movie", which distinct it self from the more loony tone of the series. But where "Hannah Montana The Movie" eliminated almost all the comedic elements from the show, "Wizards" does maintain a few quite hilarious moments along the way.

If you'll manage to overlook a charismatic, but non-believable villain and a few pacing problems, you'll get a nice and watchable treat. This "Wizards" movie may not surpass it's series, but neither muddles with the continuity of the concept, as "Hannah Montana The Movie" did.
