Selena Gomez will reunite with her Wizards of Waverly Place co-stars for a TV move special.

The singer will also serve as an executive producer on the new project, Disney has confirmed.

The actress will star alongside Jake T Austin, Jennifer Stone, David DeLuise, Gregg Sulkin and Maria Canals-Barrera in the film, which will be set in Italy.

Gary Marsh, Disney Channel's worldwide president and chief creative officer, said in a statement: "With the phenomenal ratings of the Wizards finale earlier this year, it became clear that fans of the series were not ready to say goodbye to Selena or the rest of the Wizards cast.

"As such, we're thrilled that the cast has agreed to reunite to bring their fans one last grand adventure."

Production on the Wizards of Waverly Place TV movie will begin in October, and it is scheduled to be aired in early 2013 on the Disney Channel.
