First Trailer for Netflix’s Pee-wee’s Big Holiday Is Like a Time Machine

What day is today? 1985?

We’ve known for a while that Paul Reubens and Netflix were bringing back Pee-wee Herman with a new movie, but probably nothing could have prepared us for just how much it feels like an old Pee-wee movie in this trailer, and we’re suddenly not so sure how time functions.

Of course, feeling like you’re stuck in the past isn’t necessarily a good thing, and we’ll have to wait until the full movie drops on March 18 to see how Pee-wee really stands this particular test of time.

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.

Reubens teams up with Judd Apatow (Anchorman, Bridesmaids) to produce, and Paul Rust (Comedy Bang! Bang!, Arrested Development) to write. John Lee (Broad City, Inside Amy Schumer) makes his feature film directorial debut.
