Good news for Pee-Wee fans


Yes, Netflix all over again, but this time, there's a trailer involved.

The streaming giant has released their first clip for the big return of Pee Wee Herman in Pee-Wee's Big Holiday, we just found out from NME.

Produced by Judd Apatow (Girls, Love, Trainwreck, Bridesmaids, This is 40), the Netflix original film will be released on March 18. The story follows Pee-Wee as he is suddenly uprooted from his beloved home of Fairville in order to roam the mean streets of New York after a chance encounter with actor Joe Manganiello (Tumbledown, Magic Mike, Knight of Cups).

The popular character, originally played by actor Paul Reubens (The Blacklist, Robot Chicken, Accidental Love) who's reprising the role, has been absent since the mid nineties. The return of the classic character has been rumoured since Reubens made an announcement in 2014.

Reubens first played Pee-wee Herman in the late 1970s starring in the films Pee-wee's Big Adventure and Big Top Pee-wee as well as the TV show Pee-wee's Playhouse. In recent years, Reubens has revived Pee-wee in for a popular Broadway stage show and numerous TV guest appearances.
"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," Apatow said in a press release.

Reubens co-wrote the film's script with Arrested Development writer/story editor Paul Rust, and a plot synopsis teases: "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."

John Lee, the camera man behind many episodes of Broad City and Inside Amy Schumer, is on board as director.

Pee-wee Herman said in the press release: "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."

Pee-wee's Big Holiday will premiere exclusively on Netflix in all territories in which the streaming service is available.

Enjoy the trailer!
