Paul Reubens is back as Pee-wee Herman in the full-length trailer for Pee-wee's Big Holiday! Get ready for his biggest adventure yet. Tried of his dull life, Pee-wee decided to head for the Big Apple, and has one heck of a time trying to get there. This new comedy from producer Judd Apatow will have its world premiere at the SXSW Festival this spring before it streams on Netflix March 18.
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. Joe Manganiello is the sexy stranger, who rides a mean hog and only drinks chocolate milkshakes. Pee-Wee Herman's (Paul Reubens) unique morning ritual is finaly broken so he can set off for a cross country road trip that will bring him face to face with some of the world's craziest people. It will surely be a ride to remember!
The supporting cast for Pee-wee's Big Holiday includes Tara Buck, Joe Manganiello, Jessica Pohly, Alia Shawkat, Stephanie Beatriz, David Arquette and Brad William Henke. It isn't known if any characters from the original TV series Pee-wee's Playhouse will return for this new movie. But from the looks of things, Pee-wee is doing fine on his own. Though, we expect there will be an exciting, unexpected cameo or three.
John Lee makes his feature directorial debut with Pee-wee's Big Holiday. He previously directed episodes of TV shows such as Wonder Showzen, The Heart, She Holler, Broad City and Inside Amy Schumer. He is directing from a script Paul Reubens co-wrote with Paul Rust (Comedy Bang! Bang!, Arrested Development).
Paul Reubens also produces alongside Judd Apatow, who helped bring this long-awaited project to fruition. Pee-wee's Big Holiday marks the first Pee-Wee Herman movie since 1988's Big Top Pee-wee.
