A climactic, adventure-filled one-hour episode of the Emmy Award-winning comedy series “Wizards of Waverly Place” will premiere FRIDAY, JANUARY 22 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. Guest stars Bridgit Mendler (“Good Luck Charlie”) and Gregg Sulkin (Disney Channel UK’s “As The Bell Rings”) reprise their roles as Justin’s vampire girlfriend Juliet Van Heusen (who’s recently disappeared after being turned into a mummy’s minion) and Alex’s new boyfriend, Mason, in a top-secret storyline entitled “Wizards vs. Werewolves” that’s bound to be the talk among the kid and tween set.
DisneyChannel.com will present a “creature creator” application that invites users to upload and morph their own photo into the assorted otherworldly characters seen in the episode — a wizard, vampire, werewolf or mummy — and share this Creature Creator activity with friends. The application is currently available on DisneyChannel.com/Wizards.
“Wizards vs. Werewolves” will be available for a special preview beginning January 15 on Disney Channel on Demand through a variety of affiliates, including Cablevision, RCN, Time Warner Cable and Verizon FiOS. The episode will also be available on DisneyChannel.com immediately following its network premiere on January 22, and beginning January 23 will be available on Disney Channel Mobile on Demand, iTunes and Xbox Live.

Austin (“Hotel for Dogs”) as Max Russo; Jennifer Stone (“Wizards of Waverly Place The Movie”) as Harper Finkle; Maria Canals-Barrera (“Camp Rock”) as Theresa; and David DeLuise (“Stargate SG-1″) as Jerry.
