You remember the movie…it’s the one with me, Joe Manganiello, and…

Joe and Peewee Herman



Mark your calendars for March 2016!! Pee-wee’s Big Holiday!!!

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. Judd Apatow (Anchorman, Bridesmaids) and Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Pee-wee’s Playhouse), worked together to bring the project to fruition and produced the film. It was written by Reubens and Paul Rust (Comedy Bang! Bang!, Arrested Development), and is directed by John Lee (Wonder Showzen, The Heart She Holler).

    Oh man….I’m all emotional now. Best news ever.

  • Shybiker

    Yippee!! I’ve been waiting for Pee-wee’s return for YEARS. It always shocks people who know me to be a haughty cinemaphile when I say that “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” is my favorite film of all time. A famous painter (Grace Hartigan) once told me that she went on a date with a man and they saw “…Big Adventure.” She laughed; he didn’t; so she broke up with him right then, concluding (reasonably) that if he didn’t find Pee-wee funny, he wasn’t suitable for her.

  • Shayla Lennox

    I’m marking my calendar now! i can’t wait to see this movie!

  • Edward R. Arnold

    Would love to hear Pee-Wee do that stacatto laugh while I tell him how much his carbon footprint has increased. :)

  • whataboutyou

    You win the internet today Sir…………….

  • intricid

    For some reason, i had been under the impression Apatow was directing. I’d have never guessed one of the geniuses(or is it geniui? perhaps just geni… no, geneye!?) behind Wondershowzen and The Heart She Holler would be wrangled into the director’s chair. Now i’m even more excited, i can hardly contain myself! Whatever shall i do for the next 6, 7, well 8ish looong months of anticipation?

  • tedbaldwin

    Just pining for your stagecraft after reviewing the Christmas Special.

  • Coleman Wigger

    Great to see Pee-Wee again. So happy is still acting.

  • Logan Newman

    Not directed by Tim Burton. We will see.
