Reubens will star in Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, the third movie of the series, which will be directed by John Lee and produced by Judd Apatow for Netflix. The plot involves Pee-wee meeting a mysterious stranger who inspires him to take his first-ever holiday. Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos:
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. We are thrilled to bring our viewers around the world the wonder of Pee-wee Herman.
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.
