Earlier this month, Disney Channel announced that Gomez and Henrie would reprise their roles in the highly anticipated sequel series
In a photo shared on his Instagram Story, Henrie and Gomez posed for a photo while enjoying dinner with the new cast of the highly anticipated Wizards of Waverly Place revival and its new writers Scott Thomas and Jed Elinoff.
"Let's make some 🪄 [magic]," Henrie, 34, captioned the photo.
Gomez, 31, was all smiles as she put her arm around one of the series' writers while Henrie lifted a child actor on to his shoulders. New cast members Janice LeAnn Brown, Alkaio Thiele and Mimi Gianopulos could also be seen smiling for the photo.
Earlier this month, Disney announced the pair — who starred as siblings in the original Disney Channel series — were reuniting for a sequel. Gomez will reprise her character, Alex Russo, as a guest star in the pilot while Henrie will play Justin Russo as a series regular.
The sequel will chronicle the aftermath of “a mysterious incident at WizTech, where an adult Justin Russo has left his wizard powers behind, opting for a normal, human life with his wife and two sons. But he gets a surprise when a powerful young wizard in need of training shows up at his door… and Justin must embrace his past to ensure the future of the Wizard World,” according to an official synopsis.
Brown will star in the lead role of Billie, the powerful young wizard in need of training, on the new Disney Channel series. Thiele will play Justin's oldest son Roman while Gianopulos will take on the role of Justin's wife Giada.
Disney Channel teased the news on Instagram, sharing a snapshot of the pilot script with a wand from the series.
“📍Waverly Place 🎥: Wizards of Waverly Place,” the caption read.
