First Set Photo From ‘Pee Wee’s Big Holiday’ Pops Up On Instagram

It’s Friday, and the secret word is “selfie.” (Sorry, couldn’t resist.) Paul Reubens made his Instagram debut today with the first photo from the set of Pee Wee’s Big Holiday. It’s a photo taken by Joe Manganiello, who just joined the cast last week.

Pee Wee’s Big Holiday marks the first time Reubens has returned to the character that made him a household name since 2010’s The Pee-wee Herman Stage Show: The Return, and the first Pee Wee film since the regrettable Big Top Pee-wee back in 1988. (Certain red-eyed film buffs recall, if foggily, the Pee-wee Herman character ratting on the stoner heroes in Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie way back in 1980.) A road movie in the spirit of 1985’s Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Holiday sees Pee Wee taking his first-ever vacation, during which he experiences what is being described — hopefully with total sincerity — as an epic story of friendship and destiny. Planned for release on Netflix in all territories, it’s directed by Wonder Showzen vet John Lee, from a script by Ruebens and UCB alum Paul Rust.
