Pee-wee’s Big Holiday Gets a Release Date

From the mind of Paul Reubens, everyone’s favorite manic Child-man, innocent and always growing much like his audience. Reubens went on to craft what is arguably one of the most recognizable and beloved characters of children of all ages.
From his time in the Playhouse to his stint in the Circus, Pee-wee Herman has been delivering the absurd and sometimes blue laughs for going on nearly 40 years. Birthed as a character from his time with The Groundlings, Pee-wee has come a long way and become so much larger than he began. Forever linked to red bow-ties, “If you love it so much, why don’t you marry it?!, and Tequila by The Champs, Pee-wee isn’t done yet!
Coming off an extended hiatus, a healthy Twitter presence (@peeweeherman) and a few stray appearances on various television mediums, Pee-wee comes back with another feature length premiering on Netflix March of 2016.
Early next year, we will finally re-join Pee-wee in his next adventure Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, directed by Judd Apatow (Freaks and Geeks, Walk Hard) and written by Reubens himself with Paul Rust (I Love You Beth Cooper, Inglorious Basterds, Comedy Bang! Bang!).
The film plot is vague as of now but what we do know is Pee-wee meets a mysterious stranger and this inspires him to take his first holiday and have what promises to be an ‘epic story of friendship and destiny’.
Again Pee-wee’s Big Holiday premieres March 2016 on Netflix.
