As we learned last month, Netflix had officially picked up the return of Pee-Wee to feature films with Pee-Wee's Big Holiday. Production just began this week, and Pee-Wee himself, Paul Reubens, has posted the first official photo from the film. Little is known about the film, but Reubens told EW, "It’s a road-trip movie across the country. It’s very similar in style and tone to Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. I never really thought of [that] as a family movie, but I didn’t try to make an adult movie or a kid movie. We wanted to make something that appealed to a wide age range, and I think that’s the case with this movie." Look!
Here's the first photo from John Lee's Pee-Wee's Big Holiday from Pee-Wee's blog:
You'll be able to keep up on the production of the film occasionally right here.
Pee-Wee's Big Holiday is directed by John Lee ("Broad City") making his feature directorial debut with a script from franchise star Paul Reubens and comedian Paul Rust ("Comedy Bang Bang"). In the return of Pee-Wee Herman (Reubens) to feature films after 27 years, the bow-tie-wearing goofball has a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger that inspires him to take his first-ever holiday in this epic story of friendship and destiny. Judd Apatow is producing the film which will be distributed exclusively on Netflix.
