If you are one of the many young (and not-so-young) people who has not moved past the end of “The Wizards of Waverly Place,” you are in luck. The Disney Channel will air a “Wizards” special — complete with superstar Selena Gomez — called “Alex vs. Alex” on March 15.
You may not be able to wait until that time. This is OK — there is now a video to preview what is in store for Alex Russo and the family.
The video features Gomez explaining exactly what we can expect in the one-hour special. It seems that the Russo family takes a trip to Italy in order to visit some relatives. But of course, magic has to complicate even a family vacation. Alex accidentally uses a spell that splits her into an “Evil Alex” and a “Good Alex.” As evil twins are wont to do, Evil Alex soon makes plans to take over the world. Good Alex has to stop her. The whole thing reaches a climax during a battle at the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
So it’s not exactly a normal family vacation.
