Bill Simmons-produced HBO documentary also features Billy Crystal, Hulk Hogan, and Vince McMahon, among othersMarch 9, 2018
HBO just unleashed a brand-new trailer for “Andre the Giant,” its upcoming documentary about one of the most beloved figures in wrestling history.
Produced by HBO Sports, WWE, and celebrity superfan and 2016 Stern Show guest Bill Simmons, the doc features archival footage of the 7-foot-4-inch behemoth dominating the competition both inside and outside of the ring, where he won World Wrestling Federation Championships and appeared in blockbuster films like “The Princess Bride.” He was only 46 when he passed away in 1993, but his legend has lived on ever since.
“Andre the Giant” also examines the French-born entertainer’s extraordinary life from the perspective of his friends, family, and Stern Show veterans aplenty, including director Rob Reiner, wrestling stalwarts Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon, and body builder turned action star turned politician Arnold Schwarzenegger, who memorably took a beating from Andre in “Conan the Destroyer.” The latest look also features interviews with two of Andre’s “Princess Bride” co-stars turned friends, Billy Crystal and Robin Wright.
“Andre the Giant” premieres April 10 on HBO. Watch the new trailer (above).
