-The cast of “Wizards of Waverly Place” chatted with the NY Post recently and revealed that in the new movie, which airs Aug 28, one of the three Russo kids will wind up inheriting the familial magical powers — at least temporarily. “There is a mini wizards competition, but it’s not the final one and it’s just a temporary result,” hints Jake T. Austin.
The cast also revealed which of the wizards they would choose to keep their powers:
David Henrie: “[Justin's] the most responsible, he takes his studying seriously and he’ll make the right decision at an important time.”
Jennifer Stone: “I really like someone who works hard and is really disciplined, so I think Justin should win. It’d be hilarious if Max ended up with the powers because he’s the one that everybody least expects.”
Selena Gomez: Although she picks Justin, too, she says, “It would be interesting to see Max win because there’s something hidden in him underneath. He’s really paying attention. [Alex] is so independent. She loves magic, but it’s not her No. 1 priority, whereas Justin lives and breathes it, and Max is there and does the work. Alex can find other things to do with her life and her friends and family.”
Jake T Austin: “I would love it if, in the last episode, our long lost brother or sister that we never knew about came in and won the power … and then did a spin-off.”
Which wizard do you hope wins the powers in the end?
