Selena Gomez: Teen Queen Leaving Disney Channel

Disney is losing another teen Queen.  First Miley Cyrus outgrew Disney and Hannah Montana, and now Selena Gomez is ready to turn in her wand and leave Wizards of Waverly Place behind.

It was announced on July 12, 2010 that the show will wrap after its fourth season.   The 17-year-old Disney star told MTV:  “Unfortunately, I’m doing my last season of my show, which I’m really heartbroken about. That’s gonna be a terrible time for me."

Fans of the show will be excited to know that the Disney star will reprise her role as Alex Russo for the big screen sequel of  "Wizards of Waverly Place".  After the film is complete she will be leaving the Disney Channel.

One thing is sure -- they can't stay Disney princesses forever.
