Pee-wee Herman is back, and his first order of business is to get the heck out of Fairville.
The iconic character, played by
Paul Reubens, is starring in a Netflix original movie, Pee-wee's Big Holiday, (which premieres March 18), and the first trailer has dropped.
There are some classic Pee-wee staples: the suit, the laugh, the ability to befriend random strangers super-easily.
There are also some surprises, based on the trailer: where is Chairy? Did Pee-wee ditch his red bike for a tiny car? Will
teach Pee-wee to dance (or vice versa?) Joe Manganiello

Cue the road trip music, y'all!
So, Pee-wee starts his "perfect" holiday by becoming the runaway driver for three female bank robbers (played by
Alia Shawket, Stephanie Beatriz, and Janina Gavankar.)

Survives a lot of harrowing adventures...

Pee-wee's new Netflix film comes more than three decades after 1985's
Pee-wee's Big Adventure, so granted, he's updating his lingo, too.
You officially have about a month to binge-watch his old series before then, people. Pull up a Chairy, and get to it!
