Paul Reubens is bringing his famous 1980’s Pee-wee Herman character into the digital age. Reubens released an Instagram selfie on April 17, 2015, taken from the set of Netflix’s upcoming Judd Apatow-produced film Pee-wee’s Big Holiday.
Reubens used the official Pee-wee Herman Instagram account to post the selfie of him as the childlike, fictional character with a characteristic wardrobe and laugh that was beloved by many children of the '80s. Alongside him was actor Joe Manganiello (of Magic Mike Xxl fame), who joined the Pee-wee’s Big Holiday cast on April 8. The selfie reveals little of what's actually going on in the film’s set, but clearly showcases Pee-wee’s rather goofy smile.
Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, all about the titular character taking his first vacation, was written by Reubens and Paul Rust, an actor from Inglorious Basterds and writer for a few Arrested Development episodes (another production »

With production underway on Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, Paul Reubens has taken to his blog to post a first-look image from the Netflix original movie…
Speaking to EW, Reubens has also offered up some details on Pee-wee’s third feature, stating that: “It’s a road-trip movie across the country. It’s very similar in style and tone to Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. But it’s not about a bicycle. I never really thought of Big Adventure as a family movie, but I didn’t try to make an adult movie or a kid movie. We wanted to make something that appealed to a wide age range, and I think that’s the case with this movie also.”
Pee-wee’s Big Holiday will mark the feature directorial debut of John Lee and is expected later this year.
