For Disney aficionados and lovers of whimsy, there’s enchanting news on the horizon — Disneyland’s ultra-exclusive Club 33 is stepping into the limelight, courtesy of the silver screen. As detailed in an exclusive report by The Hollywood Reporter, Disney is gearing up to transform this secretive club into a fantastical movie adventure.

The script is being penned by Darren Lemke, known for bringing family-friendly narratives to life with hits like “Goosebumps” and the thrilling “Shazam!” Helming the production are Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, and Dan Cohen of 21 Laps Entertainment, who have a stellar track record with titles like “Stranger Things” and “All The Light We Cannot See.” The movie’s ambiance is teased to blend the playful mystery of “Clue” (1985) with the lively escapades of Levy’s own “Night at the Museum” trilogy.

The plot centers on a young budding detective who finds herself with a mysterious invite to the illustrious Club 33, an exclusive hideaway where historical and iconic figures dine. When a murder occurs within the club’s walls, the detective’s skills are put to the test by its eminent members, setting the stage for an intriguing and magical whodunit.

This cinematic venture follows Disney’s long tradition of transforming beloved park attractions into box-office gems. The unprecedented success of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise opened the floodgates for other adaptations, including “Tomorrowland”, “Jungle Cruise,” and “Haunted Mansion.” Although these didn’t capture the same critical acclaim, Disney isn’t deterred. Enthusiasts can also look forward to a Society of Explorers and Adventurers series on Disney+ and another movie spearheaded by Ryan Reynolds.

Originally founded in 1967, Club 33 began as a VIP spot inspired by the executive lounges of the 1964 New York World’s Fair, and it remains the park’s sole sanctuary for a sip of something stronger. Nestled above the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, it’s a spot shrouded in allure and mystery. The club has expanded across the globe, with installations at Tokyo Disneyland, Shanghai Disney Resort, and multiple locations within Walt Disney World.

The club’s name has stirred its own fair share of conspiracy theories, from secret masonic ties to nods at Disney’s elite sponsors. However, the agreed story is that it simply reflects its address at 33 Royal Street. This elite venue maintains its exclusivity with eye-popping initiation fees that have reportedly climbed to as much as $70,000 with annual dues of $20,000.

With its roots deeply ingrained in Disney’s legacy, the Club 33 movie promises to be a magical journey filled with mystery and enchantment. As this project unfolds, we’ll eagerly anticipate more whimsical updates.
