“Pee-wee’s Big Holiday” Clip!

We finally have a look at the highly anticipated upcoming Pee-wee Herman film, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, and does it ever look like a Pee-wee Herman movie. The description on the official Pee-wee Herman site states: “The new film stars the beloved fun-loving hero of TV, stage and film, Pee-wee Herman. In Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, 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. The film stars Pee-wee Herman, Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike XXL), Jessica Pohly (Stalker), Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) and Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), and was directed by John Lee (Wonder Showzen, The Heart She Holler). Paul Reubens and Paul Rust (Comedy Bang! Bang!, Arrested Development) wrote the film, that was produced by Reubens and Judd Apatow (Trainwreck, Bridesmaids)”

It’s been more than thirty years since Tim Burton’s classic Pee-wee’s Big Adventure was released. That was followed up by the disappointing Big Top Pee-wee, although Reubens redeemed himself with the award winning saturday morning children’s series Pee-wee’s Playhouse. Reubens has had a good run as of late, as he was recently cast to once again portray the Penguin’s father on the FOX series Gotham (Reubens previously played the part in a cameo in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns), in addition to his recent role on NBC’s Blacklist.

Pee-wee’s Big Holiday premieres on  March 18th, 2016 at SXSW in Austin, and then it will be streaming on Netflix.
