Production Notes


  • Selena Gomez stated that three different endings were shot, so the real ending wouldn't be leaked.
  • Maria Canals Barrera has said that the finale has "adventure, total heart-tugging drama and suspense, humor, wackiness, randomness and a ton of special effects."
  • A promo for the series finale began airing on Disney Channel on November 11, 2011.
  • Alex would have been the Family Wizard anyway because if she didn't help Justin she would have won.
  • Justin became the Family Wizard, but gave his powers to Alex making her the Family Wizard.
  • Professor Crumbs retires and passes his powers down to Justin making him a professor and head master of Wiz-Tech and full wizard.
  • Jerry gives the sub station to Max, since he can't be a wizard.
