After a 28-year wait, we’re finally getting a new Pee Wee Herman movie in under two months. Check out the Rube Goldberg-ian trailer for Pee-wee’s Big Holiday!
A third Pee-Wee Herman movie always seemed like one of Hollywood’s biggest pipe dreams. A follow-up to the sublime Pee-wee’s Big Adventure and the disappointing Big Top Pee-wee just wasn’t feasible during the big-budget 90s and 2000s. Fortunately, Netflix has been a bastion to cast-off comedies, and after resurrecting the likes of Arrested Development and Wet Hot American Summer, we’ll be getting the third Pee-wee movie in 31 years in the form of Pee-wee Big Holiday. In addition to revealing the March 18 premiere date, we also got the first teaser trailer, which you can watch below:
Neat, huh? Pee-wee’s house looks just as fun as ever and the man-child himself remains extremely endearing. I’m not a fan of the comedy font peppered throughout the trailer, and a Pee-wee film without Danny Elfman music is a bit of a sacrilege, but the comedy is still top-notch. And we’re experts on Pee-wee humor here at Laser Time, as we ranked every one of Pee-wee Herman’s friends from his first movie and did a commentary for that classic as one of our weekly Monday Night Movies, available exclusively to our Patreon supporters!
