Earlier this year we told you
to expect a summertime release for the first DVD of The Wizards of Waverly Place
, and yesterday Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment made their formal announcement! The disc, titled Wizard School
, is coming out on July 29th
For $19.99 SRP you'll get 90 minutes of episodes, presented in full-screen video and with English - Dolby Digital Surround Sound audio. Plus you'll also go behind the scenes, where the secrets to the show's cool spells are revealed! Look for the bonus feature "Work it Like a Wizard," where you take a trip with the cast and visit their favorite places off the set. Here's the studio's description of the show, followed by a look at the front cover art:
Meet Alex, Justin and Max Russo. They're just your average, ordinary kids living in New York City, except they've got a powerful secret: They're wizards in training! Turn up the magic with four extraordinary episodes from WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE, the smash-hit Disney Channel Original Series. Plus, join cast members for a high-flying virtual magic carpet ride to their favorite haunts - including backstage where secrets to the show's spectacularly cool spells will be revealed!
What would you do if you discovered you had awesome, supernatural powers? New "wizards in training" Alex (Selena Gomez) and her brothers Justin (David Henrie) and Max (Jake T. Austin) love to use magical potions, brews and spells to cut corners on things like homework and chores. And when the kids practice their newfound wizardry skills, things get really tricky...and hilarious! You'll be spellbound when they adopt a pet dragon, try to learn the ropes at wizard school and attempt to charm their parents into letting them use more magic - all with super-cool, supernatural results!
