David Henrie did not participate in the upcoming Disney Channel “Wizards Of Waverly Place” special, and he opened up to Glamaholic Magazine about why he made the decision to sit the special out. David revealed:
I did not participate in the TV movie for several reasons. One of the reasons was that there were conflicting dates with a film I was doing called ‘1000 to 1.’ Wizards did so much for me and I am so grateful for the fan base it built up. My dream has always been to entertain audiences acting in feature films, so I hope that my fan base will cross over with me as I move into the next stage of my career in feature films. When the show ended, I did what you’re supposed to do when something ends – I moved on to new, fresh, challenging roles. I’ve been blessed to be a part of three feature films coming out next year: Little Boy, 1000 to 1: The Cory Wiessman Story, Grown Ups 2. Naturally, after the show had wrapped, I moved right along, jumping into these mature projects, which were all around my actual age-range and elevated my game. When I heard the idea of a Wizards movie taking place after being wrapped for over a year and a half, I came to the conclusion that jumping back into the Wizards world didn’t feel like a fresh and challenging role that would progress my career.
