Disney has released a new look at the Wizards of Waverly Place revival, as a full series has been officially confirmed following a pilot episode.

Titled Wizards, the revival will go in production next month and is set to premiere later this year.

To mark the occasion, Disney has released a new image of Selena Gomez and David Henrie as Alex and Justin Russo, with her head on his shoulder, alongside a photo of them doing the same thing from back in the day.

"Making magic, then and now," the post's caption reads. "The new Wizards of Waverly Place series is coming this fall!"

Gomez will only appear in the premiere episode as a guest star, while Henrie plays a main role alongside newcomer Max Matenko, who plays Justin's youngest son Milo. Both Gomez and Henrie will serve as executive producers.

The revival series will kick off with Alex bringing a powerful young wizard named Billie (played by Janice LeAnn Brown) to Justin for help, but he's been living a normal, non-magical life. He soon learns that he will need to dust off his magical skills in order to safeguard the future of the Wizard World.

Wizards of Waverly Place can be streamed on Disney+. Wizards will premiere on the service later this year, and on Disney Channel in the US.
