"Most premieres are only for a very small, select group of people, but not this one," Selena, who serves as the film's executive producer, said in a recent video. "We want all of you to watch it with us." 

While fans were hoping the two would announce a reboot of the popular show, it can't be ruled out completely. David told Entertainment Tonight in 2019 that the pair talk about it "all the time."

According to Seventeen, Selena and David were spotted on numerous dates in 2010 and were also photographed grabbing dinner in 2014.

In 2018, David posted a photo of him and wife Maria Cahill drinking wine ... and Selena was spotted in the background. "Alex always crashing the party," he jokingly captioned the photo, referencing the "Rare" singer's Wizards of Waverly Place character.

Who has Selena Gomez dated? Here's a look at her past relationships.

Since starring in the hit Disney series, and dating one of the biggest pop stars ever, Selena's love life has been subjected to tabloid fodder. While we've gotten glimpses of what transpired between her and ex-beau Justin Bieber, who is now married to Hailey Baldwin, Sel has mainly kept mum on her other relationships.

Though she appears to be enjoying the single life, Selena has previously dated The Weeknd, Taylor Lautner, and Charlie Puth. She has also been linked to Orlando Bloom and Zedd. 

Opening up to Zane Lowe about dating in Hollywood, Selena explained, “Everyone dates everyone. It always seems to be within this little bubble and it's because it's safe, right? You know, you're wanting someone to understand what you’re going through. You're almost wanting a counterpart of creativity as well and it's, you know, interesting and fun."

She added, "But the problem with that is that you end up — whether you admit it or not — you're having a relationship for people and not even for yourself. There's almost this point where it's like 'we're making it known that we're together or whatever it is.' You just need to decide within our world if it's for you or is it for show?"
