Pee-wee-Netflix

Break out the bow ties and polish your favorite bicycle because America’s most beloved adventurer is about to begin production on his latest feature length film.

According to a new press release distributed early Tuesday morning, February 24, Paul Reubens and Judd Apatow have entered a deal with Netflix to bring a new Pee-wee Herman film to the masses. Pee-wee’s Big Holiday will star Reubens in the iconic title role, with Apatow on board to produce. John Lee, perhaps best known for Broad City and Inside Amy Schumer will direct. No release date has been set, but production is slated to begin in the middle of March.

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. No additional cast or plot information is available at this time, but we assume a number of notable celebrities will make appearances in the flick, especially if they’re known for working with Apatow.

“We didn’t hesitate for a moment knowing that Pee-wee’s Big Holiday was such a passion project for Paul and Judd and we are delighted by the opportunity to introduce such a beloved character to a new generation,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “We are thrilled to bring our viewers around the world the wonder of Pee-wee Herman.”

“As a fan of Pee-wee Herman since he first appeared on The Dating Game, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the brilliant Paul Reubens on this film. It is a dream come true,” said Judd Apatow.

“Judd and I dreamt up this movie four years ago. The world was much different back then— Netflix was waiting by the mailbox for red envelopes to arrive. I’ve changed all that. The future is here. Get used to it. Bowtie is the new black,” said Pee-wee Herman.
