‘Pee-Wee’s Playhouse’ is Coming to Theaters
Remember “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse?” Every 20-something has fond memories (for better or for worse) of the trippy “playhouse” in all its glory, tricked out with that special talking chair, “Chairry,” and a slew of claymation and puppet pals. If its latest release on Blu-ray wasn’t enough for you, you’re in luck. According to the quirky host himself, Pee-Wee and friends are coming back on the big screen “any minute now.”
During a Rolling Stone interview, actor Paul Reuben dropped some very obvious hints on an upcoming movie:
One last question: There were some rumors going around that you were working on another Pee-wee movie. Any updates on that?
There’s going to be a big announcement any minute now.
Yes. It’s been months and months of being right on the verge of being announced…I thought something was going to go public yesterday, actually, and that you’d be the first person I’d be talking about this with. But I’m thinking there will be something made public very soon. It’s going to get made shortly after the new year. I wish I could tell you about it right now, because…I mean, it’s amazing. It’s going to be amazing. It think it first got leaked four years ago or so that the movie was going to be made, and ever since then it’s just been stalling and stalling. So I’m really ready for this to happen. But I’m not kidding: It’s very imminent.
Re-watching the “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse” intro, I’m not sure how I didn’t get nightmares from it as a child, but I definitely might now. Still, the little, hyperactive kid inside of me can’t help but be excited to “go wacky” at Pee-Wee’s Playhouse once again.
