The third installment to the Pee Wee Herman franchise will not be heading to the big screen in theaters sadly but the Judd Appatow produced Pee Wee film will be heading to the small instead. The next Pee Wee film will be Netflix streaming exclusive in 2015. Judd Appatow and the team are nearing a deal with the Netflix staff.
Universal Studios was going to release the film but the studio had some distributing difficulties so they’re not gonna release it for whatever reason.
And yes, Paul Reubens is going to reprise his legendary role as Pee Wee, which is good. I can’t see no one else playing Pee Wee but Paul. I remember Paul thinking about having Johnny Depp play Pee Wee and that wouldn’t be right. Paul Reubens is Pee Wee Herman. Nobody else.
The plot and cast of characters are being kept under wraps for the new Pee Wee film but I’m sure we’ll find out soon.
Now I know why “Pee Wee’s Playhouse” and “Big Top Pee Wee” were made available for streaming on Netflix. How come “Big Adventure” isn’t made for streaming yet? Oh well… I have “Big Adventure” on DVD anyway and I’ve seen the film hundreds of times.
Yeah, I’m a pretty big Pee Wee fan and ain’t ashamed of it. He’s just a very entertaining character and I’m glad he came back.
