'Wizards Of Waverly Place' Finale: Was Selena Gomez Crowned Family Wizard?

Wizards of Waverly Place Finale

After four incredible years, ‘Wizards’ came to an end tonight. Were you happy with the finale?

I went into the Wizards of Waverly Place finale with trepidation. It felt like an end of an era — Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and now, Selena Gomez — they were now officially done with their Disney days. That said, if Wizards had to end, I was thoroughly content with this ending.

Spoiler alert: don’t keep reading if you haven’t watched yet!

The hour finale was chalk full of moral lessons, action and funny moments. However, what I appreciated most was how we got see the Russo’s putting each other first. During the second level of their competition, the kids ended up disqualified because they took too long during their time outs. It wasn’t until they forgave each other and stopped blaming Alex for the disqualification that they got to participate again. I know it’s a Disney show, which means it’s going to have positive messages, but it was still refreshing to see a family lesson in it all.

Going into the third level of the wizard competition, I was conflicted about who would be named family wizard — Alex (Selena) or Justin (David Henrie) — but it quickly worked itself out. Justin ran through the tunnel first, thus winning the wizard title. Fortunately, he admitted Alex was actually the rightful winner, as she helped him break free from tree roots. Thus, she was crowned the family wizard.

For a hot second, I was bummed for Justin. After all, he was the one who studied the most and worked his entire life to be a wizard. Alex barely lifted a finger. Thankfully, Professor Crumbs wanted to retire after thousands of years of practice and decided to pass his position on to Justin, making him a wizard as well. Voila!

And for those of you who were concerned about Max (Jake T. Austin), he lucked out too. His parents left him the restaurant.

Over all, I was content with the Wizards ending. Sure, it wasn’t super complicated — but it fit the show perfectly. After four memorable years, it was time to say goodbye.

How did you feel about the finale? Did you like it as much as I did?

I didn’t like the end bc it just shows kids that you can be lazy, not study, self centered, and rude. By making Alex a wizard it just proves what all Disney shows are about here lately. You can be a spoiled little girl and everyone will always give you what you and everything always works out for you. I think it would have been right if Justin would have been the family wizard bc he always showed the right traits that kids should have.

I for one actually wasn’t content with this ending.. I didn’t like the fact that they gave wizard powers to both alex and justin and missed out max..
even though max was thrilled it still seemed unfair

and all you people upset that this epic show has come to an end;
don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened ^.^
