“General Hospital’s” Sonya Eddy (Port Charles’ Epiphany Johnson) appears in the new film “Pee-wee’s Big Holiday,” now streaming on Netflix.

Eddy posted some photos of the film and her cast mates on Instagram.
Pee-wee’s Big Holiday” was written by and stars Paul Reubens (Pee-wee). In the film, a sequel to “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” and “Big Top Pee-wee,” Pee-wee meets actor Joe Manganiello (“True Blood”) who convinces him to take his first vacation ever from work and come to New York for his birthday. In typical Pee-wee fashion he runs into all sorts of trouble along the way, which includes bank robbers, a stolen car, a shot-gun wedding, and hiding out with the Amish. He also meets several people in need of his help. The film has been receiving fairly good reviews from the press. You can watch the trailer for it right here on Soaps.com.
