Some good wizardly fun!



The Wizards of Waverly Place reminds me a bit of my favorite movie as a kid, I loved it so much that I actually wore out two VCR recordings of it, yes thats right VCR.. heh. I was a HUGE fan growing up of the Worst Witch HBO TV special and as much as I loved Mildred I have to say that Mildred was far behind on the fashion scene than Alex in Wizards of Waverly Place!


What’s it like to suddenly discover that you have the most awesome magical powers ever? Three siblings find out in Wizards of Waverly Place, coming to Disney DVD from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment on July 29, 2008. For the very first time, four episodes of this spellbinding Disney Channel Original Series come together in one bewitching DVD with an amazing and exclusive bonus features.

Face paced, goofy, and the constant turmoil between Alex and her brother Justin keeps you on your feet and giggling. Though the weird cackling of the Dr. Evilini creeps me out a bit honestly. Its a bit like a magical version of Saved by the Bell. Only one small note... do those robes look a bit familuar to you? heh.





Here is the official info :
Alex Russo and her brothers Justin and Max suddenly go from being your average, ordinary
kids to discovering their family’s astonishing secret—they are wizards in training! Navigating
the unpredictable politics of Wizards’ School, trying to control amazing new powers and fixing
magic spells gone awry are just part of everyday life for these teenagers. With a red-hot young
cast that includes Selena Gomez (guest appearances on Hannah Montana and The Suite Life
of Zack & Cody), David Henrie (guest appearances on That’s So Raven and How I Met Your
Mother) and Jake T. Austin (Johnny Kapahala), as well as Maria Canals-Barrera and David
DeLuise, Wizards of Waverly Place conjures up nonstop laughs as these three siblings find
themselves up to their necks in the art of wizardry.

semtaylor said...

Sounds like it would be funny for all to see. Normal kids who do things kids dream about.

barbarabaker said...

Oh wow...my girls and I love this show and watch it avidly on Disney...We love the show where the youngest one has his power developing and has to wear a hat until he has it under control, but while he deals with that issue, Alex drinks a love potion (both sides) and falls madly in love with herself and everytime she talks about how great she is her head bloats...but when she bags on herself it shrinks...This is just an absolute favorite in our home!!!

Please count me in for this giveaway, I'd love to win this for my girls and I!!!

This show is a campy take-off on Harry Potter, but that's what makes it fun.

Amanda said...

my Samantha would love this DV. thanks for a geat giveaway

Ginny said...

My favorite wizard movies are of course Harry Potter. When this show first started previewing, my kids were excited because it reminded them of HP. It is a cute show & one of the few Disney shows that don't totally drive me nuts.

Most of Disney shows center around dating & they are kids. This one is at least something different!

Princess Golden Hair said...

my favorite wizard movie is a golden oldie, the wizard of oz. watch out for the flying monkeys now.

Ginny said...

When it comes to wizard movies I like the first 2 Harry Potter movies. I really like the storyline and it is a great way to spend a rainy weekend afternoon. My kids love the Wizard of Waverly Place and watch it all the time. You can always hear lots of laughter while they are watching so I know they really enjoy the show.

valmg said...

I've loved all of the Harry Potter moview so far. What appeals to me about the movie is that it's a comedy and it's a Disney movie, which means we'll all be able to watch it and laugh.

Our favorite wizard movie would have to be the 1st Harry Potter movie (No, spell check, I DON'T mean Hairy, stop it!). It stuck so well to the book, and we didn't know much about him at the time, so we all fell instantly in love. We had 4 generations there watching it in the theater!

lisawonbig said...

The Harry Poter movies, of course, in order.

Please don't forget, though, Gandolf in the Lord of the Rings movies. (I didn't pick them because, although there is a fair amount of wizardry in them, they are not what I think of technically as "wizard" movies. (Except in terms of the British slang, as they were real wizard!)
