Mark down March 18 at 12:01 a.m. PT on your calendar if you’re a Pee-wee Herman fan. That’s the day the Netflix original movie Pee-wee’s Big Holiday premieres, the streaming service announced Tuesday.
From the look and feel of the trailer (below) the film appears to hit on the nostalgia of the previous Pee-wee films and popular Pee-wee’s Playhouse TV show (which is available to stream on Netflix now). It’s also fascinating that 63-year-old Pee-wee actor Paul Reubens doesn’t look any different than he did back in the ‘80s!
The film, which was written by Reubens and Paul Rust (Arrested Development), and produced with the help of Judd Apatow, takes Pee-wee on his first vacation ever after meeting a “mysterious stranger”. Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike XXL), Jessica Pohly (Stalker), Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) and Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) also star.
Along with Fuller House, the new Full House series Netflix is launching in February, this could be the year the ‘80s officially return (at least on TV).
Watch the teaser trailer for Pee-wee’s Big Holiday below.
