Pee-wee Herman is back! Netflix, the popular online streaming site, is set to premiere the film “Pee-wee’s Big Holiday.” The movie will be starring Paul Reubens in his iconic role as Pee-wee Herman and produced by Judd Apatow, the man behind comedies like “Knocked Up” and “Bridesmaids.”
The new movie, officially title “Pee-wee’s Big Holiday,” will follow Pee-wee as he embarks on his first vacation ever, thanks to a chance meeting with a mysterious stranger. Let the high jinks ensue! Production for the film is scheduled to begin in early 2015.
The convenience, growth and popularity of Netflix made this re-boot film possible. Netflix currently streams many Pee-wee Herman classics like “Pee wee’s Big Adventure,” “Big Top Pee-wee,” “The Pee-wee Herman Show,” and the Emmy Award winning children’s series “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” season one and two.
With a chance to bring in a whole new generational audience to the classic character, Pee-wee is sure to delight. I cannot wait to see what Pee-wee has in store. The bow-tie is back!
