Thirty years after Pee-wee Herman (a.k.a. Paul Reubens) went in search of his missing bike in the cult-favorite comedy Pee-wee's Big Adventure, Netflix has confirmed that it will exclusively premiere his next feature film, Pee-wee's Big Holiday.
The film – which Reubens confirmed last October on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon – finds Pee-wee embarking on his first-ever holiday, described in a press release as "an epic story of friendship and destiny."
