‘Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday’ Plans Revealed By Netflix

25 February 2015 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The title of the long-gestating third Pee-Wee Herman film has been unveiled as Pee-wee’s Big Holiday.

The new movie, to be streamed on Netflix, sees Pee-Wee become “inspired to take his first ever holiday after a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger”. Story-wise, the Judd Apatow production should feature manchild Herman’s brand of warped eccentricity, famous to fans of the character’s output. Tim Burton’s Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (1985) saw a road trip including a deceased trucker named Large Marge, and the underrated Big Top Pee-wee (1988) had a circus blow into the hero’s farm during a storm.

Created by controversial actor/comedian Paul Reubens some 35 years ago, Pee-Wee also ran kids TV show Pee-Wee’s Playhouse that had Laurence Fishburne among the cast. He was resurrected by Reubens (now in his sixties) in 2010, and after some time trying to get something cinematic off the ground the »

Netflix To Release Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday

24 February 2015 10:54 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix continues to make forays into the world of original feature films. With Adam Sandler securing a four-picture deal with the company, the next (and far more auspicious step) that the streaming and DVD service has taken is into the world of Pee-Wee Herman. It was announced earlier today that Paul Reubens’ new Pee-Wee film, Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday, will be released worldwide on Netflix.

The Judd Apatow-produced Pee-Wee film has been a long time coming: it was originally set up over at Universal, but has since migrated to Netflix, who already streams the original TV show Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, as well as both feature films, Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and Big Top Pee-Wee. Adding another Pee-Wee film to its roster makes perfect sense, and probably will give the cult fanbase a much bigger chance at seeing it.

Paul Reubens himself sounds quite excited about the Netflix deal, saying »

Netflix Slates Judd Apatow-Produced 'Pee-wee's Big Holiday'

24 February 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Paul Reubens will return as the eccentric Pee-wee Herman in Netflix's next feature film "Pee-wee's Big Holiday." This is the first standalone theatrical Pee-wee feature since 1988's "Big Adventure" sequel "Big Top Pee-wee," with the beloved kids' series originally on CBS "Pee-wee's Playhouse" and a handful of made-for-tv specials and stage appearances since. Judd Apatow, who honed the project with Reubens, will produce John Lee's ("Broad City," "Inside Amy Schumer," whose lead comedienne stars in Apatow's upcoming "Trainwreck") directorial debut. Reubens co-penned the film with Paul Rust, a story editor on Netflix's season four restart of "Arrested Development." Here's the official synopsis, with production set to begin in March 2015: "A fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger inspires Pee-wee Herman to take his first-ever holiday in this epic story of friendship and destiny."
