First-Look Teaser: Pee-wee's Big Holiday

Netflix #StreamTeamOn March 18, the long-awaited Netflix Original Film, Pee-wee's Big Holiday will make its debut, putting Paul Reubens back in action as his iconic character, Pee-wee Herman. A first-look teaser arrived this afternoon with the date announcement, and you can see it below.

While there's still not a vast amount of detailed info available about the film, the one-liner says "A fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger inspires Pee-wee Herman to take his first-ever holiday in this epic story of friendship and destiny."

Holiday Wish GuideReleased for the first-time-ever on Blu-ray this Fall in an 8-disc Complete Series box set, along with a 4-disc Complete Seasons One & Two DVD set (which I have) Pee-wee’s Playhouse is just as delightfully bizarre as you probably remember it from the first time around... perhaps even more so. Riding the retro wave, Pee-wee Herman and friends look better-than-ever, fully remastered from the original film elements in painstaking detail by the team at Shout! Factory. Re-watching the show as a parent nearly 30 years later (I watched it regularly when it made it's debut on CBS in 1986), it's interesting to see just how Paul Reubens managed to work kid-friendly, positive messages and even educational elements (Pee-wee ended up doing a guest shot on SESAME STREET) into the zany confines of the Playhouse - racking up numerous awards, including nearly two dozen EMMYS.

On October 21, 2014, the folks at Shout! Factory will release PEE-WEE's PLAYHOUSE: THE COMPLETE SERIES on Blu-ray and DVD. I think I need this. It's all 45 episodes, completely remastered from the original film elements, and presented in high-definition along with the PEE-WEE's PLAYHOUSE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL. While pre-orders are up now on Amazon, those who order direct from Shout! Factory will get it two weeks early (October 7) with free shipping. Check out the specs below!
