Paul Reuben’s is set to don the grey suit, red bow tie and white loafers in an all-new adventure, “Pee Wee’s Big Holiday.” We last saw Pee Wee in the 1988 film, “Big Top Pee Wee,” and since then, fans have been awaiting Pee Wee’s triumphant return.
Well the day is finally here and rather than seeing it at a theater, you will be able to watch “Pee Wee’s Big Holiday” on Netflix on March 18th, 2016. Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix:
The new film stars the beloved fun-loving hero of TV, stage and film, Pee-wee Herman. In Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger inspires Pee-wee Herman to take his first-ever holiday in this epic story of friendship and destiny.
The film stars Pee-wee Herman, Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike XXL), Jessica Pohly (Stalker), Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) and Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), and was directed by John Lee (Wonder Showzen, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday). Paul Reubens and Paul Rust (Love, Arrested Development) wrote the film, that was produced by Reubens and Judd Apatow (Trainwreck, Bridesmaids).
“We didn’t hesitate for a moment knowing that Pee-wee’s Big Holiday was such a passion project for Paul and Judd and we are delighted by the opportunity to introduce such a beloved character to a new generation,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “We are thrilled to bring our viewers around the world the wonder of Pee-wee Herman.”
“As a fan of Pee-wee Herman since he first appeared on The Dating Game, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the brilliant Paul Reubens on this film. It is a dream come true,” said Judd Apatow.
“Judd and I dreamt up this movie four years ago. The world was much different back then— Netflix was waiting by the mailbox for red envelopes to arrive. I’ve changed all that. The future is here. Get used to it. Bowtie is the new black,” said Pee-wee Herman.
With Netflix being in 190 out of 195 countries around the world, it’s safe to say that “Pee Wee’s Big Holiday,” directed by John Lee, is going to make a big splash on March 18th.
