January 29, 2019 by Daniel Bee

WWE Andre The Giant DVD Documentary Scheduled for 2019!

After you waited patiently… and then waited some more… for news on the next WWE DVD/Blu-ray in the works, WrestlingDVDNetwork.com has a “Giant” exclusive to share with you today!

Joining the line-up on the 2019 WWE Home Video schedule known so far will be a DVD simply titled “Andre The Giant” (tagline: “Even bigger than you imagined”); the second Andre DVD released by the company to date following the 2005 offering of the same name.

HBO Sports and WWE will once again become a tag team to bring us a physical copy of the 1-hour and 25-minute HBO documentary feature from last year and we can confirm that the documentary will be accompanied by some new extras selected by WWE.

Mark your calendars for a worldwide release beginning May 2019. Additional details and pre-order opportunities are on the way!

TEASER TIME: The new Andre The Giant DVD is another Home Video concept that first appeared on a fan survey issued by WWE back in June 2018. “Best of NXT TakeOver 2018” was another one found there in advance of being made official. And WrestlingDVDNetwork.com can now reveal that as of right now there’s one more on that list that will soon be confirmed for 2019.

 

SYNOPSIS

  1. […] has learned that in the United States the new “Andre The Giant” DVD releasing this April will include a free “Fathead” (wall decal) inside the packaging, presumably of Andre The […]

  2. SRB says:

    Seems like lots of changes are happening in the wrestling media world and I personally am not ready for these changes that are coming. I realize whether I like it or not, change is inevitable, but doing one and two disc releases is a huge letdown. I am in a position where I am watching home media slowly die and it’s very sad. I was a kid of the 1990s and will always prefer physical copies of things rather than streaming devices and Networks. That’s just me.

    • RabidHeat says:

      I am too. You can’t collect footage from a Network that may be taken down any day at the owner’s discretion. Plus, I like not having to have a WiFi connection to watch my sh*t.

  3. Ruthless.Attitude.Eras4Life says:

    wwedvd.co.uk already have the content for it ready..unfortunately only 1 disc, and just DVD edition. I hope the documentary alone will be worth it, because the extras could have been better for sure.

    • Ruthless.Attitude.Eras4Life says:

      maybe the expression BETTER is not fit regarding the extras..more so, the extras could have been plenty more in numbers, hence it should have been a 2-discs bluray.

    • Mark Markson says:

      Too bad it’s not a 3 disc set, and no blu-ray. But I expected no blu-ray.

      Not sure if I’ll get it. I want it, but living in the EU, we will soon have to pay custom fees on goods bought in the UK. Not a fan of this whole brexit thing, lol.

  4. BAS says:

    I think this is the first documentary release since Kevin Owens. (minus WWE 24 – 2018) Even though this was an HBO thing, I hope this is the first step in going back to releasing more docs and other DVDs. It’s been pretty underwhelming ever since WB started taking part in their production.

    • RabidHeat says:

      I’m not sure it necessarily means that WWE will start producing their own docs again. This is another fairly low-cost release for them since the doc was already released last year and funded by HBO, so all WWE had to do was pull some matches from the vault (and it looks like we’re not even getting those in the UK!)

      • RabidHeat says:

        I stand corrected – the UK is getting the matches, but it’s only a handful. This release is still “easy fruit” for WWE to pick. Still no evidence that there are going to be any truly interesting 3 DVD sets in 2019.

  5. Timothy Thorpe says:

    I’m wondering how many discs it will consist of. It’ll be interesting to find out.

  6. me says:

    This would be a good place to get creative with the match listing. Especially I’d like to see Andre’s early career more.

  7. me says:

    About time we got some news! This is long overdue.

  8. RCS1988 says:

    I wonder if they will include some TV taping dark matches with this set?

  9. LP1 says:

    This was a really good documentary. Glad it’s getting a home video release. With HBO involved, I would think a blu-ray will be guaranteed, but with WWE lately you never know.
