Tony Hawk hit a gold mine, not only in skateboarding but in video games.

The legendary skater teamed up with Activision in the late 1990s that created an empire of video games deemed as the Tony Hawk’s series. The series included a total of 19 games to date.

In Pretending I’m A Superman – The Tony Hawk Video Game Story, the documentary explores Tony Hawk’s journey into the video game market, starting with a video game developer Neversoft in 1999. The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater became one of its best-selling video games that launched more games and influenced a new generation of skaters. The first game sold more than 9 million copies upon its release.

The documentary features never-before-seen footage and interviews with Hawk with others, including Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen, Chad Muska, and Jamie Thomas.

“It’s been a long journey making the documentary, and I’m stoked it will finally be released for skateboarding and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater fans worldwide. The art form and video game had an enormous impact on Generation Y/Z, and the story behind it is even more fascinating,” said director Ludvig Gur in a statement.

The film explores the genesis of the video game series in its development and influences on the projects. Additionally, it reveals how much input Hawk had in these projects in terms of gameplay. Other video game behind-the-scenes observations included its music soundtracks and artist renderings of clothing styles.

Pretending I’m A Superman – The Tony Hawk Video Game Story is scheduled for a digital and VOD release date on August 18. Its ahead of the remake video game release of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, which will be available for the Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 4.
