The first picture from the upcoming Netflix release Pee Wee’s Big Holiday, featuring Paul Reubens, back again as Pee-Wee Herman has just been revealed on Reuben’s blog, announcing the conclusion of the second day of filming. The movie is set to arrive 30 years after the Pee-Wee character was first introduced and I can’t help but wonder just how well this thing will play.

John Lee (“Inside Amy Schumer”) is directing what Reubens described to Entertainment Weekly as “a road-trip movie across the country.”

It’s very similar in style and tone to Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. But it’s not about a bicycle. I never really thought of Big Adventure 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 also.

The movie is likely to premiere at the end of the year or early 2016.
