That makes you larger than life. There has never been another Andre the Giant and there never will be. Everyone has heard a story about him and that makes for one of the most fascinating characters you’ll ever see. As luck would have it, HBO has put together a documentary on his life, which debuts next month. That means trailers.

Here’s the newest version.

HBO has released a new trailer for the Andre the Giant documentary, which debuts on April 10. This trailer looks at Andre’s size but focuses more on the hardships he faced both due to injuries and the fun people made of him. This trailer presents him as a much sadder figure, which was a part of his life that may not be as well known as his more famous exploits.

Opinion: The more I hear about this thing, the more I know I need to see it. Andre the Giant is one of the most fascinating characters in wrestling history, if not all of pop culture. A properly produced documentary could be amazing and I’m hoping that HBO gives it the time that it deserves.

Here’s the original trailer.
