Pee-wee Herman’s next adventure is coming to Netflix.
Netflix says the film will be called “Pee-wee’s Big Holiday” and will feature Pee-wee taking his first-ever vacation after meeting a mysterious stranger.
Reubens created the quirky character in the 1980s when he was a member of the Groundlings improv group.
Netflix currently streams the Pee-wee films “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” and “Big Top Pee-wee,” as well as the TV show “The Pee-wee Herman Show” and “Pee-wee’s Playhouse.”
"Pee-wee’s Big Holiday" is being produced by Judd Apatow and directed by John Lee. Reubens is writing the movie’s script with Paul Rust.
Netflix says production will begin this year.

Great blog post and set of powershell scripts for manipulating images.
As the title suggests, spoilers for The Interview follow.
Towards the end of the movie, after Dave Skylark is shot, he miraculously has a bullet proof vest, blows up Kim Jong-un, finds a random tunnel and is picked up by Seal Team Six. These are the same details of the unbelievable scenario that Dave Skylark describes to Agent Lacey at the beginning of the movie.
This isn’t a coincidence. Everything after Dave is shot is his fantasizing about how things should have gone as he dies in the interview chair. Unsurprisingly his fantasy closely matches his original ridiculous thoughts about how he would assassinate and escape.
This is similar to movies like Brazil in which the later fourth of the movie is the main character’s romantic fantasy as he is tortured and killed in real life. Or Total Recall where the end of the movie matches the description of the memories that the main character will have implanted at the beginning.
Its safe to assume that after Dave is killed, Aaron and Sook are captured and also killed.
