Best Disney Movie Ever!!!!!

This movie is best that I seen from Disney since the other ones are lame and/or stupid (not, Hatching Pete). I watched the movie last night on its premiere night and it was amazing. The whole cast is brilliant (Selena Gomez, David Henrie, Jake T. Austin, David DeLuise, and Maria Canals-Barrera), especially Selena and David (Justin), I love their characters. One of the reasons why I like this movie is because they get to use magic to their full extent (much better than the series). Another thing why I liked the movie is because it's my favorite show on Disney (so I'm going to watch it), and then Hannah Montana and that's about it. Also there special effects are so good, better than what Disney does, even though 2 or 3 scenes were bad, but over all it was great. So I'm going to watch it on Saturday and Sunday for behind-the-scenes special effects on Saturday and Sunday sneak peeks to Season 3.
