Selena Gomez produces Disney's "Wizards of Waverly Place"

Selena Gomez is adding one more title to her name. Yes, She is going to produce an hour long special Disney's "Wizards of Waverly Place."

Her reunion (she got her big break on as "Alex" in 2007), special will be aired on Disney early next year. She is now a movie star, chart-topping singer, Emmy winning actress and producer just only at her 20. The show aired its final episode Jan. 6 but Gomez and the rest of the cast are reuniting for one more hour-long special.

"I'm not ready for it to be over, so I just kind of want to do one more thing," Gomez told Radio Disney's Ernie D about the upcoming special.

"It was my idea to kind of start this, because I wanted to do it really badly," she said during the interview which airs Friday. "I want to make sure I promise the cast and the fans a really, really good hour-long event that they can enjoy and will leave them feeling good."

The special episode takes the Russo family to Tuscany, Italy, to meet their long lost relative, but as usual, Alex (Gomez) gets herself into wizard trouble which comes to blows at the top of the Tower of Pisa. The episode is set to premiere next year.

Gomez has had her hands full since "Wizards" ended. She's working on new music with her band, "Selena Gomez & the Scene," and voiced "Mavis" in the new animated flick "Hotel Transylvania." Earlier this year she filmed "Spring Breakers" alongside Vanessa Hudgens, Heather Morris and Ashley Benson in which she plays a college bad girl on spring break. The film hits theaters in March.
