Jennifer Stone Talks 'The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex' And Selena Gomez As Executive Producer

The cast of “Wizards of Waverly Place” is reuniting for the new Disney Channel movie, “The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex,” premiering this Friday, March 15. HuffPost Teen caught up with the adorable Jennifer Stone -- who plays the weirdest and most wonderful BFF ever, Harper Finkle -- to get the scoop on the new movie. Watch the interview in the video above.

Here are highlights from our Q&A:

Jennifer's number one priority as a BFF in real-life...
Trust is really important to me. I don’t like to be around people that I can’t pour my heart and soul out to.

What Selena Gomez was like as the executive producer of the "Wizards Return" movie...
It’s not really that different, she has a little bit more say in what happens. It’s really cool to watch her grow up in that sense and just be more in control of things. She has a great sense of humor about herself, so we give her tons of crap. We’re like “What’s up EP, why is this happening?” We give her so much junk for it but she has a great sense of humor so she takes it in stride.

If she could go back in time and give advice to herself on the first day of "The Wizards of Waverly Place"...
I’d tell myself to enjoy every minute because I still look back on it and I can’t believe how fast it flew by. It was five years of my life but it just went by so quickly. It feels like a story somebody told me, not something that actually happened to me. I was so blessed to have that experience. I would tell 14-year-old me to pace yourself, enjoy every minute of it, and don’t take it for granted.

What her senior superlative would be at "Disney high school"...
They actually made yearbooks for everybody when the show ended -- which was very sweet and I hold mine very dearly -- but it was something about me having very colorful language.

What her wizarding power-of-choice would be...
Probably to read people’s minds, but to be able to turn it off because that would be horrible to just have it all the time, like Mel Gibson in “What Women Want.” I’d like to read people’s minds but have an “on” and “off” switch.

Where Harper will be 5 years from now...
Well, we had the "future Harper" episode and Rachel Dratch played an older version of me -- which was so rad -- and I end up writing stories about the Russos and their adventures. But if I had to imagine Harper in five years, I feel like she would be interning at some kind of clothing, fashion outlet. She’d be doing something with clothes or writing.
