Jennifer Stone and David Deluise Bring 2007 to 2023
Jennifer Stone (Harper Finkle) and David Deluise (Jerry Russo) shared a fun moment together when the two recently got back together for the “Wizards of Waverly Pod”. During some down time, Stone and Deluise decided to “bring 2007 to 2023 with a shimmy.”
The two “Wizards of Waverly Place” members hopped on the viral “Wednesday” dance that Jenna Ortega actually choreographed herself.

A third user wrote, “I’m obsessed with this song right now! Watching all the videos with the song so I can learn the dance 😂💃.”

Will There Be A “Wizards of Waverly Place” Reboot
In 2020, Selena Gomez and David Henrie hinted at a possible reboot to the hit Disney Channel show.
Henrie posted a video of himself to Instagram saying “Hmm..” and then turning the camera to show Selena Gomez who also just simply says “Hmm”. It left fans with so many questions — including co-star, Gregg Sulkin, who commented “Hmmmm” to which Henrie replied with “hmm indeed Gregg. Hmmm indeed.”
And in 2019, Henrie spoke to ET, saying that he and Gomez talk about a reboot “all the time”.
“We have a whole take. We have a whole thing,” Henrie stated. “We want to start the show like a few years later; start them off at the worst place ever so that way throughout the series you give them a nice, beautiful arch of reuniting. Start them out divided.”
In regards to where the characters would be in the reboot, Henrie shared, “Alex is a fashionista, off killing it in some other part of the realm. Justin’s, like, the principal who has a family now, of WizTech. Max has the sub shop, but it’s run down … Start us all completely discombobulated and then throughout the course of the series you bring us all together.”
