/ by

I know you’ve all been waiting for a long time for this… IT’S HERE!!! 

Here’s the first clip from my new movie, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday!!!

My movie premieres at SXSW in Austin, Texas!! Then, ‘Pee-wee’s Big Holiday’ starts streaming on Netflix at 12:01 A.M., Friday, March 18th!!

The new film stars the beloved fun-loving hero of TV, stage and film, ME!! In Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger inspires me to take my first-ever holiday in this epic story of friendship and destiny. The film stars me (!), 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).

    20 year olds put Pee Wee Herman on the map. His first feature was Art House weirdness and tickets flew out of these old school cinemas.

  • Lizabethie of The New World

    Netflix would have me locked in if they would let me schedule this release, just turn my TV on and ring a bell for me to go sit down!

  • Laura Lyn Lockman

    finally something new from pee-wee been a fan of his forever.

  • Don Hoot

    Nice “log” PeeWee!

  • Ned Velcro

    I think Pee Wee is so loved because there is a bit of Pee Wee in all of us. The innocence, the joy of childhood, how at one time in our lives, we saw the world like Pee Wee does. Paul Rubens is a genius for tapping into that simple child in each one of us.

  • roadapathy

    Finally, a movie. I was about to steal his bicycle for not making a new one but we’re good now.

  • J.Z. Slawosky

    Pee wee Pee wee Pee Wee weeeeeeeee Love you. Oh yes we do. We love your Pee Wee you know it is true. We love you Pee Wee and now I am through! P.W. you rule. The rest drool.

  • Susan Ping Ellis

    Pee Wee’s Big Adventure was my favorite, and my little sister and her friends loved it too. They watched it on VHS (yes, VHS!) back in the 80’s! “Tell em Large Marge sent ya!”

  • Six_Tymes


  • Dr What

    Sure looking forward to this one Pee wee. Will you have another Speck or is the original also Immortal and Timeless as you are? haha

  • Dr What

    I hope not. I’ll be 60 this Summer and I LOVE Pee wee. His brand of Humor is timeless.

  • Michele Ulrich

    I love Pee Wee. I am excited. We need Pee Wee’s Playhouse on Saturday again. 🙂

  • JediJones

    Large Marge sent me.

  • Jrod

    I can’t wait…big fan.

  • Candy T

    This is so well written and I couldn’t agree more.

  • Noel Vento

  • not ted danson

    I love that story…

  • Somebody_Something

    Why,YES,a viewing party is being planned…

  • Helen Gircko


  • Deviancy

    Solid casting.. sounds like a good idea for a story.. and anything from the 80’s seems to have no issue scoring well with multiple generations. People are going wild over Ash Vs. Evil Dead and that’s a total 80’s thing.. so I see a clear path for a return of the uh.. Peester.

  • Schizo_Frog

    Maybe if this is a big success, Netflix could relaunch the show. We can only hope.

  • James Jesus MagGot

    Even Jesus is excited for this!

  • Joanne Gerstein Hein

    Can’t wait (heh heh). I know you are but what am I?*

  • DinaC

    I’ll be 50, and I can’t wait!

  • DinaC

    There’s no basement in the Alamo!

  • Reina

    I love Pee Wee! Yes, this is long awaited.

  • Chris Conley

    Pee wees big adventure was my favorite movie

  • Intrepid Armchair Enthusiast

    Do any of you realize that Paul Rubens was also the voice of Trimaxion, the spaceship, in Flight of the Navigator? Little known fact 😉

  • amy mullins

  • Brian Vargish

    My 19 month old loves watching Pee-Wee’s Playhouse 🙂

  • Carl Alan Hamm

    I met Pee Wee in Cabazon, CA (large Marge, dinosaurs) during the filming of the Big Movie. It was a coffee break pit stop between Camp Pendleton and 29 Palms. Myself and 30 Marines piled into the cafe and Pee Wee looked very nervous. On a side note we have a rescue dog named Pee Wee, it was the only name my kids could agree on, they are big fans.

  • Kenny Heggem

    YES! He is driving a Citroen, too!

  • Ffrreedd

    A friend’s daughter was such a big PWP fan that her concept of a week was
    based on the time between PWPs. Her concept of a half an hour was based
    on how long PWP lasted. She would ask her mom when something would
    happen and get “In 3 Pee Wees.”

    I am 62 and waiting eagerly for this.
