HBO releases trailer, reveals premiere date for Andre the Giant doc


HBO's documentary on the life of Andre the Giant is set to premiere in less than three months.

It was announced today that the documentary, which is titled "Andre the Giant," would be debuting on HBO on April 10th. HBO also released the trailer for the project, with Vince McMahon, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Jerry Lawler, and "Mean" Gene Okerlund among those  featured in it.

The trailer focuses on Andre being a larger-than-life figure and the struggles he had due to his size. Our Dave Meltzer noted that he's seen clips of the film and that fans of 70s and 80s wrestling will love all of the footage they were able to get. 

HBO Sports, the Bill Simmons Media Group, and WWE are listed as producers of the documentary, and Jason Hehir is the director of the film. Going back to his time at ESPN and working on 30 for 30, Simmons has long spoken about wanting Andre's life to be the subject of a documentary.
