Disney is working on bringing the popular Disneyland graduation celebration, Grad Nite, to the big screen, or maybe even a smaller screen. This was first mentioned on Penn’s Sunday School Podcast by actor David Wain. Wain mentions a brief synopsis in which a group of kids are stuck in Disneyland after Grad Nite.

Not much is known for now, such as whether this will be headed to the big screen, or be a movie airing on Disney’s upcoming streaming service. We’ll just have to wait and see.

From /Film:

Disney is reportedly developing a Disneyland Grad Nite movie, based on the long-running tradition wherein high school students get the entire theme park to themselves on the night after graduation.
On celebrity magician Penn Jillette’s podcast, “Penn’s Sunday School,” actor and comedian David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer) revealed that Disney is developing a movie based on the yearly Disneyland staple, Grad Nite.
Wain told Jillette:
“Somebody sent me a thing — Disney wants to do a thing where kids are stuck in Disney World on grad school night, and it’s like a teen [movie].”
