Andre the Giant was, well, a giant.

Not just in terms of his stature - though he stood at well over seven feet tall and weighed somewhere in the region of 37 stones - but in terms of the legacy that his short life left on the world.

The monster man born in Grenoble, France as Andre Roussimoff was one of the most enduring celebrities of the 1980s, having made his debut in the heyday of pro wrestling in the United States and then transitioned into Hollywood, most notably appearing in films such as The Princess Bride.

Fans of the so-called 'Eighth Wonder of the World' have been eagerly anticipating an HBO documentary on Andre, which has been in the works for over a year, and now, the producers have released confirmation that the film will be ready in April.

Check out the trailer above.

"Everyone who ever crossed paths with him has an Andre story - and usually four or five," said Bill Simmons, executive producer of the Andre the Giant movie.

"I'm delighted to join forces with [director] Jason Hehir and WWE so we can capture Andre's amazing story once and for all."
