HBO has released the first trailer for André the Giant, a new documentary that examines the life and career of one of wrestling’s most beloved characters.
Produced by HBO Sports, WWE and the Bill Simmons Media Group, the André The Giant doc premieres some time in Spring 2018.
Bill Simmons told Sports Illustrated earlier this year, “Going back to 2007 and 2008 when I was creating and developing 30 for 30 for ESPN, André’s story rode the top of every single sports documentary wish list I ever made. We always hear about unicorns these days—André was the ultimate unicorn. He’s a true legend. Everyone who ever crossed paths with him has an André story—and usually four or five.”
André The Giant is regarded as one of the greatest attractions in the history of professional wrestling. He wrestled for the McMahon family dating back to the early 1970’s and headlined WrestleMania III with Hulk Hogan back in 1987. He was just 46 years old when he passed away in 1993.
