Netflix has set 12:01 AM Friday, March 18, for the premiere of the movie Pee-wee’s Big Holiday — starring, of course, Pee-wee Herman himself (aka Paul Reubens). Produced by Judd Apatow and Reubens and written by Reubens and Paul Rust, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday is a project Apatow and Reubens had been working on for some time. It’s a return for the beloved bow-tied character and comes some 30 years after the Tim Burton-directed Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.
In Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger inspires Pee-wee to take his first-ever holiday in an epic story of friendship and destiny. In addition to Reubens, the film stars Joe Manganiello, Jessica Pohly, Alia Shawkat and Stephanie Beatriz. John Lee directed.
Netflix announces the premiere date in the video teaser above.
