Following some social media posts that fans hoped were pointing toward a Wizards of Waverly Place reboot, the show's two stars, Selena Gomez and David Henrie, have revealed what they're really up to.
The two are teaming up for the first-ever interactive virtual movie premiere. It'll take place on August 28 for a movie called This Is the Year, directed by David and executive-produced by Selena. The premiere is a ticketed event that includes a pre-show featuring music from the movie's soundtrack, behind-the-scenes footage, and a special introduction from David and Selena.
After you watch the movie along with them, TikTok stars Charli and Dixie D'Amelio will host a live Q&A with the cast. The evening ends with a performance by lovelytheband, who figure heavily into the movie's plot.
Selena has earmarked a portion of the premiere's proceeds for the PLUS1 COVID-19 Relief Fund.
As for the actual movie, it's a feel-good film inspired by those classic '80s high school flicks but focuses on issues that teens are facing today. It follows a nerdy senior who tries to win over his dream girl by hitting the road with his buddies to see lovelytheband at a music festival. The cast includes Wizards of Waverly Place alums Gregg Sulkin and Jeff Garlin.
