The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex is a Disney Channel Original Movie that premiered on television on March 15, 2013. This film follows the story of Alex Russo, played by Selena Gomez, as she returns to her magical world after a hiatus in Italy. Alex’s family and friends welcome her back with open arms, but they quickly discover that Alex has been secretly practicing dark magic for her own amusement.

As a result, Alex’s good and evil sides are separated and placed in separate realities. Good Alex stays in the regular world with her family and friends, while evil Alex is taken to a parallel universe in which she can freely practice her magic without consequence. In this world, evil Alex embarks on a mission to rule the world by trapping her friends and loved ones in a dark spell.

Selena Gomez does a superb job playing both versions of her character, showcasing her acting range and making each version distinct from the other. Jennifer Stone also delivers a great performance as Alex’s best friend Harper, bringing both comedic relief and a strong sense of loyalty to the film.

The special effects in the movie are well done, from the intricate spells cast by the wizards to the alternate version of Italy created by evil Alex’s magic. The CGI is seamless and makes the magical world feel believable and tangible.

In addition to the main battle between good and evil Alex, the film also touches on themes of loyalty, family, and forgiveness. Each character has their own arc and struggles to overcome, and the film does a great job of fitting these stories seamlessly into the main plot.
