A New Pee-wee Herman Film is Coming to Netflix

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.”

Pee-Wee Herman is a quirky, fun-loving character that stole hearts with his child-like energy, quirky facial expressions and off-beat mannerisms. Paul Reubens has been portraying the lovable man since the early 80’s in two television series and films. The recent film has been in the works for over four years but recently gained ground. Reubens and Apatow will be co-producing the production, and the film was written by Reubens and Paul Rust said Brad Reifler.

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!
